Abstract

PINHO, Leandro Barbosa de et al. Therapeutic activities: comprehension of families and profesionals at a mental health service. Esc. Anna Nery [online]. 2013, vol.17, n.3, pp.534-541. ISSN 1414-8145.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1414-81452013000300018.

OBJECTIVE:

To analyze the understanding of family members and mental health professionals concerning the therapeutic activities implemented in the routines of Psychosocial Care Centers.

AIMS:

This qualitative study was conducted in a Psychosocial Care Center in the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil.

RESULTS:

The therapeutic activities reveal many possibilities for implementing actions and practices according to new trends guiding care in the field. The results also reveal there is a risk of services adopting authoritarian and crystallized postures compatible with traditional care models, which the Psychiatric Reform campaign has struggled for more than 20 years to overcome.

CONCLUSIONS:

This study is expected to encourage a new perspective of Psychiatric Reform in the studied context and discussions about the teamwork processes and the relationships between services and patients.

Keywords : Psychiatric Nursing; Mental Health; Health Policies.
