PALOMBINI, Analice de Lima; BARBOZA, Rita Pereira; FICK, Tanise Kettermann  and  BINKOWSKI, Gabriel. Caring for caregivers: from the demand for listening to writing about oneself. Rev. latinoam. psicopatol. fundam. [online]. 2010, vol.13, n.2, pp. 253-264. ISSN 1415-4714.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1415-47142010000200007.

This article discusses the process of writing about everyday life in therapeutic residences as a historical record of that special period in Brazilian psychiatric-care reformation when mental health workers and in-patients moved out of asylums and into therapeutic residences. This article investigates the effects of the exercise of writing about self-perception and the caring practices provided by professional caregivers.

Keywords : Mental health; writing about oneself; therapeutic residences; psychoanalysis.
