CAMBUY, Karine and AMATUZZI, Mauro Martins. Reflection group with Family Health Program professionals. Psicol. estud. [online]. 2008, vol.13, n.3, pp. 613-618. ISSN 1413-7372. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-73722008000300023.
Activities of a reflection group, also known as growth group, are described in the context of a humanistic approach, and the manner such practice might help health professionals in reviewing their experiences and behaving more actively in their work's environment is provided. Thirteen professionals from the Family Health Program team of a Basic Health Unit in the southern region of Campinas, SP, Brazil, have taken part. Description and the comprehension of such an experience were provided by narratives of the group's female coordinator on the experience of these professionals and participants' reports written immediately after the meeting. Reflection on mobilizing situations in the exercise of the profession contributed towards the re-thinking of important aspects and the suggestion of creative solutions for the issues involved. Participants reported a personal and collective growth through a reflection of their experiences.
