Important changes have marked families since the last decades of the last century. Among
the many factors that contribute to the new family configurations is
marital separation Marital separation entails a series of negotiations regarding the roles and functions
occupied by family members, however, should not alter the bond between parents and children.
In this context, despite the breakdown of the marital relationship, father and mother must continue to exist as
a "parental pair." Coparenting then assumes a fundamental place in the
healthy development of the child. The exercise of coparenting requires
parents to talk about their roles and responsibilities, as a joint concern for
the child's overall well-being. Thus, this study sought to understand children's perceptions of
parents' separation and identify how mother-child and father-child relationships are maintained in
post-divorce. The study was qualitative and exploratory, supported by the Family System.
Four children, aged between six and eleven, whose parents established
formally divorce. The instruments used were the
Sociodemographic Data Questionnaire with the mothers, the Thematic Drawing-Story Procedure and the
Semi-Structured Interview with the children. From content analysis, interviews revealed that
men remain poorly accessible to their children's daily care after divorce. Sometimes
there was interference of marital roles in parental exercise, in which
co- responsibility was overlapped by a conflicting dynamics of the former couple. In the drawings there was the absence of the
father figure , which may warn of a distance between them. It has been observed in some cases that
remarriage of parents may also affect the performance of parental functions when
A family member presents himself as someone who replaces the parental figure. Finally, this
research set out to reflect on the best interests of the child.

The present study aimed to investigate the children's understanding of the marital separation
of their parents, contextualizing them in the established parental relationships. We conducted a
qualitative exploratory study consisting of multiple case studies with three families of
six-year-old children whose parents had been separated from each other for a maximum of two years. To
collect data with the children, the following projective instruments were used:
Fable Test - pictorial version and the Family Drawing with Stories procedure. The
parents were accessed individually for Socio-Demographic Data Interview and
Interview on Marriage Separation and Children. Based on the data, it was possible to realize
differences in children's perceptions of the meanings that parental relationships
assumed in the context of post-divorce. For two of the participants, the parents were assigned a
position characterized by affection, while for three of them the figure of the mothers occupied
a position of conflict. In a unique way, in this study, for a child the mother figure was
understood by the children as a continent, occupying the place of care. It is understood that the
possible repercussions for the child of the separation of the parents can manifest through
emotional disorganization, however the quality of attachment between the parental figures and the
children acts as a mediator in the moment of great changes, which is the separation,
characterizing the emotional disorganization of the child as transient or expected for the
moment of crisis that the family experienced. Since, even with
parental involvement, affection, and concern, the event of marital separation can generate fear and anxiety in the child,
as the child is in a passive position on the events after the separation decision.

Social skills (HS) are the set of behaviors of the individual's repertoire to
respond appropriately to interpersonal demands. In the clinical-therapeutic context of
drug dependence, the term coping skills (HE) is described as the ability
of an individual to cope with high-risk drug use situations. GOAL:
Describe whether there were changes in the repertoire of HS, HE and self-efficacy (AE) for
drug withdrawal after the end of a training program and its three-month follow-up. This is
a quasi-experimental study with pre and post intervention measures. The sample consists
of 32 participants with Stimulant-Related Disorder, admitted to
therapeutic communities The instruments used were: Self-efficacy

This work is a section of a doctoral dissertation that investigated
female single parenting from the perspective of gender and family therapy. A critical analysis of the
female single parenting, seeking to highlight the interrelationship between the context and the process of
structuring families headed by women in the micro and macrosocial environment, from the
ecological-systemic approach. It is a study with qualitative focus and
exploratory-descriptive design. This work investigated the perception of female heads of household about
female single parenting from a micro and macrosocial perspective.
Ten female heads of household of medium socioeconomic level, aged between 30 and
39, were interviewed 40 and 50 and 51 and over 60 years. Data were collected through
semi-structured individual interviews , and the topics used in the script sought to understand how

discursive interaction between the micro (dynamics and functioning) and macro (social and
contextual aspects ) discourse elements revealing, under the gender criticism, the existence of
favorable and unfavorable aspects associated with female family leadership in contemporary times. We conclude
that there is a high sensitivity to patriarchal prescriptive family models since the

It is understood the family institution as the prime location for the development of individuals,
as well as the study of family relationships essential for understanding life in
society. In this sense, this paper aims to present the results of a research,
which sought to understand what is the understanding of law school students about the
current family dynamics, shared custody and its applicability. The
theoretical approach was interdisciplinary, seeking subsidies in the area of Law, especially
Family Law and Psychology, supported by the understanding of family dynamics from
psychoanalytic theory Eight students from the law, day and night courses,
from a Public University of Higher Education, who attended the Family Law discipline
in the last semester in which their courses offered it. The research was qualitative and was conducted
through semi-structured interviews of open questions. Data analysis was performed
through content analysis. The results indicate that, for the study participants, the
differentiation between parenting and conjugality in the post-divorce context is a difficult move
for the parental couple to understand, besides being complex to put into practice. In
addition, the data show that academics' main understanding of
shared custody is the need to share responsibilities between parents. Still,
The participants question the effectiveness of the guard mode in question, bringing some
restrictions as to its applicability. Moreover, it is noted the importance of studies
involving other actors and social contexts as participants, in order to relativize the possible
crossings that were pointed out. Still, we realize the relevance of
interdisciplinary work in cases involving family issues, in order to achieve a
complex and systemic approach to situations.

The emergence of symptoms ( psychof SP) ) - a topic little studied in the national and
international literature - represents a dysfunctionality in the baby's life, which may be related to both
the relationship of the mother-baby dyad, as well as aspects of extended family dynamics. This study
aimed to analyze to what extent the environment of the young mother-baby
baby and by the young woman's family of origin, may act as a protective or risk factor for the
baby's development, indicated by the presence or absence of PS. A
cross-sectional, mixed study was conducted with six young mothers (M = 17; SD = 1.67) and their babies (M = 9; SD = 3.34).
All had a loving relationship with the baby's father and had no
depressive symptoms (Edinburgh Postpartum Depression Scale). A
Demographic Data Sheet , Symptom CheckList (SP assessment), Revised
Marital Adjustment Scale (R-DAS; Marital Adjustment Assessment), Family Support Inventory (IPSF; Family Support
Perception) and a semi-structured interview about motherhood. Half of
babies had some type of SP. Babies whose mothers had a positive perception
of family support (IPSF; medium-high score or higher), even in the presence of a
poor love relationship (R-DAS; poor marital adjustment), did not have SP. Thus
, the young mother's satisfaction with family support seems to be a protective factor for
the onset of PS in the baby. This finding was reinforced by the statements of the young women, who reported
receiving help from their own mother, partner's mother, father and siblings to care for the baby,
clarifying doubts and making economic and professional decisions. These findings
highlight the importance of the extended family for the adaptation of young mothers to multiple
marital and maternity demands, so that they can promote the
healthy psychic development of the baby.

Along of the life cycle individuals occupy different roles. With the various
overlapping roles, it is believed that they will have difficulty reconciling the domains in which they are
members. Reconciliation would be more difficult for married individuals with children who occupy
executive positions in organizations as there is an increase in family and work demands. Against
In addition, a qualitative research was conducted to understand how individuals in
executive careers within private organizations perceive and deal with the conflict between work and
family. The sample consisted of eight married professionals with at least one child. A
sociodemographic questionnaire, an instrument called “
life structure pizza ” and a semi-structured interview were used. Data were analyzed according to the
phenomenological-semiotic method The results highlighted the presence of gender stereotypes in the
experience of the conflict between work and family and the importance attached to work and the
parental role Lack of time has been described as the major source of conflict between domains. However,
Even with difficulties and losses, participants perceive the conciliation between the spheres with
something natural. As reconciliation strategies, individuals are supported by family members,
the organization in which they work and make use of specialized services. The results
showed an effort by the interviewees to separate temporally and spatially the domains of
family and work, but in daily life there was an integration between them. Although the study is not
generalizable, it allows a better understanding of the phenomenon of work and family conflict
in the Brazilian context.

Currently, psychoactive substance use is widespread social classes,
age groups and cultures, becoming a serious public health problem worldwide. Therefore

from the psychological care provided to drug addicts in a community.
in Rio Grande do Sul. This is a descriptive qualitative research, with
participant observation technique, recorded in a field diary during the visits and soon
after transcribed, and also a semi-structured interview with the local psychologist
in another time. All data obtained were considered from the content analysis
proposed by Minayo (2007). In this research, verbal consent was obtained from all involved,
but their identification was kept confidential. The results were analyzed from
the residents' reports, identifying as main risk factors the relationships
interpersonal and family, as well as deficits in social skills, showing that there is great
influence of family and friends in environments conducive to use, and highlighting the difficulties
of expression of feelings, respectively. For the protective factors,
faith and psychological care were pointed out , which are important precisely because of the
motivation that is generated from the group, and the importance of psychoeducation regarding
self-knowledge, disease and the development of strategies in order to improve the quality
of life and treatment of residents. Thus, it is concluded that it is important to understand these
factors, as what for some may be a protective factor, for others may be considered
threat. And from this identification enable effective interventions, broaden
protective factors and improve coping strategies of individuals undergoing treatment to reduce
relapse rates.

Emotional and behavioral problems are prevalent among adolescents, which underscores the
importance of their identification in order to prevent clinical conditions. To understand the
phenomenon systemically, it is necessary to contemplate multiple informants. Thus, the
objective of this study was to evaluate the agreement between mothers and adolescent children regarding the indicators of
emotional and behavioral problems and to compare indicators of
anxiety / depression, isolation / depression, somatic complaints, social problems,
thinking problems, attention problems, deviant behavior and aggressive behavior as seen
Current studies have prioritized global analyzes that address only total
problem scores This is a cross-sectional and comparative cross-sectional study with a
quantitative approach , involving 95 adolescents aged 11 to 18 years (M = 13.75; SD = 1.39) and their
mothers, totaling 190 participants. The instruments used were the
Behavior Inventory for Children and Adolescents between 6 and 18 years old and the Self Assessment Inventory
for Adolescents between 11 and 18 years old. To assess agreement between mothers and children, the
weighted Cohen Kappa index was used , which revealed considerable agreement on
aggressive behavior (k = 0.36; p = 0.001), externalizing problems (k = 0.32, p = 0.002 ) and total issues
(k = 0.22, p = 0.03). Spearman's correlation indicated a weak-moderate positive correlation between the
perception of mothers and adolescents on the isolation and depression scales (r = 0.28; p <0.01),
social problems (r = 0.26; p <0.05 ), thinking problems (r = 0.28; p <0.05),
deviant behavior (r = 0.26; p <0.05), aggressive behavior (r = 0.43; p <0.01) ,
externalizing problems (r = 0.39; p <0.01), total problems (r = 0.34; p <0.01). The data
reveal that the agreement patterns correspond to externalizing indicators,
mostly suggesting that mothers tend to perceive more such symptoms and, less
expressively, internalizing ones, which may be related to characteristics such as
withdrawal. This understanding is corroborated by the correlations. Still, they are
only moderate agreement and correlation, suggesting a possible lack of cohesion between mothers and children, which
may be related to adolescence and peer orientation.

The study presents aspects addressed in the investigation on the interfaces of the
resilience process with families. Family resilience refers to the way the family group overcomes
adversity. Studies refer to it as the ability to cope with difficulties and overcome
crisis situations (WALSH, 2003). This study aimed to analyze the perception of
therapists in the resilience process of the families served. A qualitative
multiple case study was conducted through semi-structured interviews with three therapists. The information was
categorized and interpreted through thematic content analysis, based on the references
of positive psychology and systemic therapy. The categories were: General family perception,
Situations of crisis \ adversity, Domains of family resilience, and Therapist's view
of family resilience. Family history of mental disorders, bereavement and suicide attempt were the
main risk factors found. (WALSH, 2005) Stand out as protective factors in
seeking professional help and behavioral changes. The therapists did not distinguish between
individual and family resilience and did not identify elements that showed it in the units.
analyzed. Studying family resilience guides interventions to strengthen the family
as problems are resolved. However, this approach goes beyond
problem solving to prevention and preparedness for future challenges. The
family resilience domains act as a useful map to guide families and
therapists and provide consistency in planning the intervention (RUTTER, 1999 and YUNES,
2003). At the same time as one realizes the valuable potential of family resilience within the
systemic perspective and positive psychology, considering the singularities and the context in
which the family is inserted, it is possible to verify the lack of works on this theme,

Violence, especially psychological, has become a usual form of
marital conflict resolution Seeking to understand possible predictors of this behavior, they are already
scientific evidence that the family context of origin is linked to
violent relationships Given this, the objective was to investigate which family behaviors predict the
occurrence of psychological violence committed by men and women. 608
heterosexual individuals, married or in a stable union, were surveyed It is a quantitative and
explanatory research Participants answered the Conflict Tactics Scale (CTS2) violence scale and the
Family Background Questionnaire (FBQ subscales. Regression analyzes
(stepwise) were performed using SPPS (22.0). The results revealed that the model was significant (R2 =
0.239; p <0.001) and the psychological violence committed by women was associated
with sexual abuse suffered in childhood (t = -3.747; p = 0.000), parental substance abuse (t = -
2.103; p = 0.036), paternal psychological maladjustment (t = 2.645; p = 0.009) and parental coalition (t
= 2,584; p = 0.010). These variables explained approximately 23% of the psychological violence
committed by women in this research. Regarding psychological violence committed by
men, the regression model (R2 = 0.095; p = 0.001) indicated that having experienced
physical neglect in childhood (t = -2.048; p = 0.001) and maternal psychological maladjustment (t = 2.818 ; p =
0.005) had predictive power of 9% of the psychological violence that men commit. The
results allow us to mention that the experiences lived in the families of origin may be
related to the way individuals relate in their marital Another
important result is that some identifications with the behavior of the
parental figure of the opposite sex are revealed These data may help to understand cases of
marital violence and, in particular, to think about prevention programs.

According to Patricia Galvão Institute, 65% of women do not identify with the way they are
portrayed in advertising. It is not difficult to imagine why creative departments are
practically a male stronghold, with women relegated to those in attendance. The lack of
a female perspective ultimately reinforces dangerous stereotypes, such as the "object woman",
encouraging and enabling violence against women. Increasingly there is a rising against this
machismo, opening the opportunity to discuss gender equality and female empowerment.
From documentary analysis, it was proposed to theoretically discuss media advertisements that
objectify women, and their consequences on their psyche and health. We sought to
reflect on the social repercussions of the perpetuation of stereotypes. A
survey was made of how women, or aspects regarded as feminine, are portrayed through
advertisements that could be found on public search sites. The theoretical analysis was
performed from books or online journals. The data found revealed that the
majority of women as protagonists are in advertisements whose products are intended for
home care or beautification. Advertising aimed at the male public, especially with
sports or alcohol themes, also makes use of the female image, but as an
attraction to the target group, placing the woman as a barter to come when purchasing the item, or as
a decorative piece. that attracts male eyes, reducing it to a "piece of meat".
These aspects are thought to directly affect the individual's mental health, including altering the way
they perceive themselves or the perspectives they have for themselves. Advertising aimed at reducing
women to mere male attractiveness becomes a target when we study issues
of gender perpetuation, misogyny, and violence against women.

Mourning is a natural process faced during various moments of life, configuring a
healthy evolution made by the individual to elaborate that loss and readjust to life. The
way the subject faces this process is greatly influenced by his
internalized attachment models These models are developed in childhood and determined by the relationship that the
caregiver establishes with the child, aiming to build a safe base for them to be welcomed and
able to explore the world. Major deficits at this stage of life result in the development
of insecure attachment. The aim of this study was to understand the influence of attachment models
observed in the grieving process of three young adults from a school clinic who lost their
mothers. The non-systematic multiple case study methodology was used with axis
interpretation of attachment models and mourning tasks. The results showed that the patient
who showed a secure attachment was able to readapt the loss more
satisfactorily and naturally compared to the other two patients who had insecure attachment.
One of these, because of the type of insecure attachment and difficulty expressing her feelings, performed
self-destructive attitudes that put her at risk and could lead to complicated grief. In the
third case, a type of insecure attachment was also observed, which, despite the patient being
able to perform her grieving process, significantly increased her anxiety level
regarding the readaptation to life. These findings were pertinent to those reported in the literature,
reinforcing the influence of these attachment models on grief. Limitations include the presence
of only clinical observations, without the application of instruments and the time variation since the
loss. Finally, further studies in this area are suggested, as there was a shortage
of scientific articles on the parental grief of young adults.

The construction and expression of sexuality is a continuous social process and influenced by various
contexts. Among these, the school stands out as one of the systems in which sex education
occurs informally or formally, influencing individual and relational behaviors.
In this sense, the objective of the present study was to understand teachers' perceptions about
the sexuality of adolescent students. It is an exploratory design study,
cross-sectional and qualitative approach, which is part of a larger research aimed at identifying
sexual risk behaviors of school adolescents and associating them with
individual and contextual characteristics related to family and school, approved by the Ethics Committee of the
University of Vale do Bells River. The present study will only contemplate the data related
to the second stage, regarding the school context. Participants were six
sixth to ninth grade teachers from three public schools in the city of Porto Alegre who responded to a
semi-structured interview containing questions regarding sociodemographic data, perceptions
about adolescent sex and sexuality, sexual education and adolescent-family communication.
about sexuality. Thematic analysis was used for data analysis and interpretation. The
themes emerged from the data themselves, which were analyzed by two independent judges, namely:
gender roles, sexual risk and sex education. Preliminary results suggest that
teachers tend to dichotomize adolescents' sexual behaviors into
male and female roles , where certain behaviors are expected for each
gender. The dialogue about sexuality in school is scarce and occurs in specific activities,
developed at the teacher's discretion. It is noted that it is necessary to invest in the qualification
of education and health professionals, as well as to formalize sex education in schools in order to
promote critical reflection on situations of discrimination and foster a culture of
health care .

Marital separation is a time of crisis in families, which requires
structural adaptations and reorganizations from their members. Part of a larger study entitled
“Marital Separation: The Role of Adolescent Children”, this paper aims to investigate the place
occupied by adolescents during their parents' marital separation, from the
Systemic Theory Nine adolescents from eleven to sixteen years old, students from
public elementary and / or high schools in a city in the interior of Rio Grande do
Sul, with varied socioeconomic level, whose parents were separated at the time of
data collection, participated in the study Participants answered a sociodemographic data interview and an interview
semi-structured approach to marital separation from parents. The collected data were transcribed and
analyzed qualitatively from the content analysis. Given the results, it was noticed
that when the marital separation of parents occurs, teenage children tend to occupy roles
that would not be expected for this moment of their development as a teenager. By
breaking up the conjugality, the couple may find themselves unable to play their roles as a
parental dyad, so that the eldest son becomes part of those roles. It is
so teens can take the role of caregivers and protectors of younger siblings,
as well as, in some cases, provide emotional support to parents, especially mothers
weakened by the breakup of a love relationship. These adolescents were also
exposed to marital conflict, even interfering in discussions between parents, defending one
parent or expressing their opinion on the decision to separate. From the
results, it is emphasized the importance of preserving the children of conflicts between the ex-couple at the
moment of the marital separation, highlighting the importance of working the roles and delimiting
the boundaries between the family subsystems in this context.

Enabling is an essential step in the adoption process as it assesses candidates and
prepares them for parental duties. Despite being extremely important for adoption, the
Child and Adolescent Statute defines only guidelines, but not specific criteria that
should be addressed in this process by the technicians. Therefore, aspects of private life and
subjective experiences, such as adoption motherhood, could influence the practices of these
professionals. In this sense, the objective of the present study was to evaluate whether adoption maternity
experienced by judicial techniques could influence their professional practice.
Four interviews of judicial techniques of the Child and Youth Court were analyzed: two from the
south and two from the north of Brazil, and in each state one of the techniques was mother by adoption. The
participants were part of the project “Being able to be a father and being a mother from a legal point of view”. They
responded to a semi-structured interview about their practices. The design used was
a collective case study with attention to particularities and similarities and the interviews were
analyzed through thematic analysis. From the analysis, it was possible to notice some
differences. Participants who are foster mothers reported that the dismissal process is
very painful for them as they put themselves in the shoes of parents who are losing their children. With
regard specifically to qualification processes, adoptive mothers showed great
empathy for candidates and reported a tendency to value them in the process, which seemed to be
motivated by personal experience. Participants who did not go through this experience
reported seeking to see what would be best for a child in a host situation. This
approximation of judicial techniques to the reality of adoption can make the
qualification process more welcoming to candidates.

Forces of character are individual positive characteristics which refer to the
pre-existing ability of a particular mode of behavior and feeling, which facilitates the
optimal functioning of the human being and can help in coping with the adversities of everyday life. Like
forces, individuals also have personality traits that can be understood
as individual characteristics of each. This study aimed to evaluate the association
between Love for Learning and personality traits (Realization and Neuroticism) with their
respective facets, and to investigate if there were differences between genders in the
studied variables The participants were 396 male and female college students living in
a city in the interior of Sao Paulo. Among these students, 226 were women (57.1%), with
ages ranging from 17 to 61 years (M = 22.91; SD = 6.03). The instruments used were the
Character Strength Scale (Noronha & Barbosa, 2013) and the Personality Factorial Battery (Nunes,
Hutz & Nunes, 2010). Analyzes were performed using descriptive statistics observing
mean and standard deviation, besides Person correlation and Student's t-test to verify the
difference between genders in the dimensions investigated. Multiple linear regression analysis
was also performed. In general, significant coefficients were found, with magnitudes
ranging from weak to moderate. The coefficient of greatest magnitude was between Love for
Learning and R1 (Commitment), and then with R3 (Commitment). Regarding the
correlation with Neuroticism, the negative coefficient with N3 (Passivity) is highlighted. The
variables R1, R2 and R3 showed moderate, very low and low positive correlations
respectively with Love for Learning. All facets of the two personality factors
chosen correlated confirming the theoretical hypothesis that Neuroticism and Realization
would be related to Love for Learning.

According to the literature, the influences of having a brother with ASD in the family can
have both positive and negative implications for fraternal relations. . In the national and
international context , studies on the quality of life of siblings of children /
adolescents with ASD are very scarce (MARTINS, ANDRADE, 2015). Therefore, the present
work investigated the family relations of teenage sisters of people with ASD from the perspective
of fraternal relations. This is a qualitative study, carried out through a delineation of
multiple case study involving three adolescent sisters of people with ASD.
Sociodemographic interviews and a semi-structured interview were used. The results
indicate that the place occupied by the sisters in the family system was shifted to assume
parental functions with regard to the care of the brother, in the same sense, the participants
signal tension to this responsibility. In two cases, the sisters presented mutual displeasure
and apprehension regarding leisure activities, which were required to be
performed including their brother. It was also noticed that in relation to life projects all
participants reported apprehension regarding entering new stages of the family life cycle,
As a love relationship. They reveal to feel insecure about the perception of the possible
companion by the brother and also, if this one would assume the affective and financial responsibilities in the
absence of the parents, regarding the future. This fact reinforces the need for further investigations in
order to understand, on the one hand, the real impact that a child with ASD has on the
family, especially in the reorganization of functions and the subtraction of developmental phases,
especially in fraternal relationships.

Summary :
Ordinance 336/2002 comes with the purpose of establishing what are CAPS -
Psychosocial Care Centers , specialized points of the Psychosocial Care Network of a municipality, serving
people with severe and persistent mental disorders within the territory. One of the modalities
defined is CAPSAd, ie for people who use alcohol or other drugs. Thus, the
objective of this paper is to report the experience of two psychologists residing in Mental Health
in a CAPSAd in the metropolitan region of the capital, using the systemic approach to
better understand the user of the service and its context. As a methodology, this work is
a descriptive experience report of the bias approached by the authors in their insertions
in the place and with the users and family members assisted. Names of practice and individual scenarios
will be kept confidential, seeking to preserve their identity. Likewise, it is noteworthy that
our point of view is being addressed here, not excluding several other possibilities and
ways of care. Regarding the analysis of experience, we seek to work the drug as a
complex and dynamic phenomenon in the life of the subject, having a role to be played. Just
as it aims at the systemic, we realized that it was not enough to address drug addiction in isolation, it
correlated with several other factors and actors, not seeking culprits, but
holding those involved in care responsible. In addition, the more complete perception of the subject
immediately led us to care for the family and environment in which it was inserted, and it is
necessary to work with the bonds established by perceiving the drug as an
emerging symptom of a hidden or perceptibly serious situation. We conclude that the approach
The systemic approach allowed us to have a broader and humanized look at those we welcomed when we realized
that the drug only manifested numerous other risks and vulnerabilities to which they were

Cartography is a concept used in health with the objective of understanding the process of the state of
health of a given territory, indicating a procedure of analysis for the
transformations and constant movements of a given community. In this sense, we
sought to perform a literature review using the keywords “Cartography”, “
Primary Care ” and “Collective Health” in the Scielo and Bireme data site; After an interview
with the Community Health Agents about the community, there were visits on the spot. In this
sense, the objective was to make an experience report about the importance of the use of cartography
in the practice of Collective Health Residents in a quilombola community, Curiau, located
in the city of Macapá-AP. After the construction of the cartography, it was possible to understand the
health-disease situation of the population enrolled in the Basic Health Unit, and may reflect
more about the reasons for few searches for Nursing and Psychology
in the Basic Health Unit, in the making it possible to think about new strategies to combat
low demand for services. Thus the cartography facilitated the understanding of the
behaviors and beliefs that the community had, broadening the view that Residents
may have about the differences between territories, since during the
Multiprofessional Residency Program Residents go through several Basic Health Units. The
Cartography is extremely important because it enables a more complete and dynamic understanding of the
community served, since in each territory passed the behaviors and beliefs of the
community changes in the face of the same health demand.

In approaching systemic therapy, grief can be understood as a loss process in
which family homeostasis is altered and there is a need for a reorganization of the roles of
all members who are part of it. of this system. Considering the phase of adolescence, which is
a period of many changes and resignifications, the loss of death by one of the caregivers can
impact the construction of the self, its individuation in relation to their families and their constitution
as an individual in society. Establishing ways to express feelings and improve
communication was seen as fundamental to the proper elaboration of these processes,
preventing a possible complicated grief. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to present the
therapeutic process in the individual systemic approach, performed in co-therapy, with a teenager who
lost his mother, done in the school service of the Psychology Course of the Pontifical Catholic University
of Rio Grande do Sul. Service and Research in Psychology - SAPP) in which
different techniques and experiences with the patient were used. Among the activities developed are
the empty chair, the technique of clay, the construction of letters and the use of music, these
chosen by the adolescent and also by the therapists themselves. In this way, through the techniques
and the therapeutic bond established with the co-therapists, enabled a better
communication of the bereaved facilitating, a posteriori, in the connection of the content of experiences with the
expression of the individual's feelings, favoring the elaboration of their grief and ending the
process with discharge from the patient.

Families in socially vulnerable situations experience contextual peculiarities that affect
directly their quality of life and well-being, and impact on the parenting experience. The
meaningful social network includes all relationships that an individual perceives as important, such
as: family, friends, neighborhood. These interpersonal exchanges favor
personal, family and community development, becoming a potential factor for the exercise of
parental roles, especially in the context of social vulnerability. Identifying and
strengthening this network is a strategy aimed at promoting health and the well-being of these families. The
present study, exploratory and qualitative approach has presupposed
epistemological the Systems Thinking, aimed to investigate the significant support networks to
maternity performance in families in socially vulnerable situations. For this,
six mothers participated, with children up to twelve years old, whose families were in a
situation of social vulnerability and who were referenced to a Reference Center for
Social Assistance (CRAS) in a municipality in the interior of Rio Grande do Sul.
Data collection consisted of the application of a Sociodemographic Questionnaire and a
Semi-Structured Interview , in an individual meeting, held at CRAS or at the participants' residences.
The interviews were recorded and transcribed in full to be submitted to
thematic content analysis (BARDIN, 2006). All ethical precepts were considered. From
In the analysis, the following categories related to the mothers' support networks emerged: “
Family Relations ”, “Institutional Support” and “Solidarity Bonds”. The results pointed to a
range of interpersonal relationships, such as: grandparents, "bosses", teachers, etc., considered
significant by mothers in the exercise of motherhood. The support network proved to be important for
the organization and even for the maintenance of families when experiencing vital difficulties or
unforeseen stressors in their development.

Introduction: The Right Authoritarianism Scale (EAD) is one of the most used instruments to
evaluate authoritarianism. It is composed of the subfactors submission to authority (SA), contestation to
authority (CA), authoritarianism (AT;) and traditionalism (TR). Authoritarianism influences the way
Interpersonal contacts occur, however, the interface between authoritarianism and marital relations
has not yet been investigated nationally. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the relationship
between marital status and scores in the subfactors of DE. Data collection was performed through an
online form between October and November 2016. The study included 518 individuals
aged 18 to 79 years (M = 39.31; SD = 17.93), 59.8% gender. male. 50.2% of
participants reported being single, 29.7% married, 9.1% divorced, 7.7% living with their spouse
and 3.3% widowed. Analysis of Variance (ANOVA's) were performed between the different groups of
marital status and scores in the distance learning subfactors. Bonferroni post-hoc tests showed that
married people tend to be more authoritarian than single (p <0.05) and who live with their
spouse (p <0.05); divorced people tend to be more authoritarian than single (p <0.05) and those
living with a spouse (p <0.05); married people tend to be more traditionalist than single (p <
0.001) and those living with a spouse (p <0.001); Married couples tend to be more submissive than
single (p <0.001) and those living with a spouse (p <0.05). It is hypothesized that through the theory of
multigenerational transmission of family patterns that individuals with more
traditional and authoritarian families , in conjunction with a greater propensity to submit to
family members tend to have a lower chance of differentiating themselves from patterns of the original family and
consequently a greater chance of reproducing the tradition of marriage.

The practice of art therapy helps to that individuals get in touch with their own
symbolic and imaginary universe, enabling them to reflect and make new
discoveries about themselves. The technique facilitates the contact with unconscious contents
allowing the participant to be able to elaborate these internal contents, even if the access
to them is not given by the word, but by other forms of expression. With this technique one can
think of new personal practices and experiences, which makes participants aware of their
abilities and values, showing them the opportunity to recognize themselves as
healthy and happy people. This work with groups of the elderly aimed to
stimulate self-esteem, exercise creativity and rescue memory. Participated in the activity
approximately 30 elderly aged 66 years, both sexes, 24 women and 6
men. At the time, each senior was given a piece of blank cloth and various materials, such
as fabric pen, fabric paint, brushes, colored glue. Soon after, they were
invited to reflect on what it was like to be elderly, what feelings they had regarding the
elderly. They were also invited to draw or write on the piece of fabric the meaning
of being old to each one. The fabrics were sewn into a large patchwork quilt.
The elders chose the quilt as a symbol of the group, taking it to represent them at events
they attended. The result of the work makes one think about the experiences of each one of them and the
applied practice where it was possible to experience an enriching opportunity highlighting the
feelings of the elderly and how valid is the practice of art therapy with the elderly.

It is understood that families are the fundamental places for the development of individuals.
In the meantime, changes are noticed, especially in relation to family settings, in
which different family models coexist. Families experiencing a process of
marital separation, for example, need to adapt to new situations and reorganize
parenting relationships after divorce. In this context, the objective of this paper is to report
some experiences of an extension program, carried out in partnership between the
Psychology Department and the Judicial Assistance Center of a Public University of Higher Education.
The extension program proposes, among other activities, to provide follow-up to
parents who carry out child custody agreements at the Judicial Assistance Center, regarding the
exercise of their parenting. It is considered, in the work process, the differentiation
to be made by parents between conjugality and parenting, as well as the
joint responsibility for caring for their children. For this reason, it is clear that through the activities of the
program, support has been provided to families and the possibility of sharing anguish,
avoiding removal or family breakdown, resulting from marital conflicts that often lead to
pervade the parental experience decisively. Finally, it is considered relevant to highlight the
importance of the extension program work with shared custody, in order to involve
both parents in the care of their children and minimize parental leave. Also, the
relevance of interdisciplinary actions such as this one, with a view to helping families in situations of
conflict, is emphasized , as well as the value of expanding such activities.

be white, so worked the socio-emotional education in an integrated way with the
racial issue Initially, there was a dialogue about the multiplicity of African culture before colonization. In
then the socio-historical process of enslavement of black people was approached as fact
painful against which blacks fought and resisted, developing resilience, strength and courage.
Afro-Brazilian culture was explored, for example capoeira, gastronomy, vocabulary, music and
dance. Positive national references such as Lima Barreto and Zumbi dos Palmares were presented, as
well as international figures such as Mandela and Luther King. Pedro said he liked his color and
his phenotype, being more confident and cheerful. Both Pedro and Fernando were able
to communicate and solve everyday problems with autonomy, expressing emotions and
thoughts. The psychotherapy totaled 14 sessions obtaining positive results because
the objectives were reached. The school did not allow any moment of dialogue or
joint work on the racial issue. Racism negatively affects the mental and integral health of black
adults, children and adolescents and can have several negative consequences. Yet,
There is a lack of real debate on the issue of racism in society, psychology and school,

In the impoverished communities of Brazil we find families in the midst of violence, with
needs that reproduce such gaps to their offspring. The results of the work
developed through Jungian Art Therapy will be exposed in the Pedro Américo community, with
children and young people, from 4 to 14 years old, and their caregivers. The reality in which they live predominates the
violence, disaffection and neglect that generate stress, tension and blocking
cognitive potentials. Our goal is to redefine trauma, facilitating the unlocking of these
potentials, the course of full development and the elevation of their self-esteem. We promote
support for overcoming the negative consequences caused by disrespect for childhood and
adolescence. According to Winnicot (2002) this context compromises the psychosocial,
behavioral and neurobiological aspects , causing impacts on the overall development of those involved.
Based on the hypothesis that, sooner or later, these negative effects may manifest themselves,
early intervention work is essential to prevent irreversible marks
on both the structure and brain function of young people (Teicher, 2002). The work is developed through
Jung-based Art therapy, on Saturday mornings, with the group of children, young people and
their caregivers, through the dynamics of art and play. Caregivers are promoted
awareness of self-reflection about causes and consequences of poor family relationships. We observed
72% of 17 families became more tolerant in the relational process of everyday life, opting
for a better quality of relationship, making it more pleasant to live together and showing
these results in children and young people. Will be exposed productions / paintings that were carried out
concomitantly with the experiences of abuse and after follow-up, allowing us to analyze
comparatively and observe the relevance of the positive impact generated by the work developed.
The autonomy and development of children and youth were expanded and perceived with the family,

Early trauma is considered a highly detrimental component for the
normal development of children. Universally, five classes of early trauma were distinguished:
physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, physical neglect and emotional neglect.
These experiences are associated with higher rates of morbidity, suicide and
functional disability , leading to more negative consequences when compared to patients without a
history of trauma. However, the type of trauma experienced can be a strong feature for
differential diagnosis in mood disorders. Objective: To compare the means of
early trauma scores between patients diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder (TB) and Major
Depressive Disorder (MDD) in the city of Pelotas / RS, from July 2012 to June 2015.
Method: Cross-sectional study, nested in clinical trials with individuals aged 18 to 29 in the
psychology service of the Catholic University of Pelotas, with a convenience sample. The
Axis I psychiatric disorders were verified by the Structured Clinical Interview for
DSM-IV - Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview Plus version (MINI Plus) and early trauma
by self reporting tool Childhood Trauma Questionnaire (CTQ). Results: The mean
Emotional Abuse (LA) of patients with TB was 12.2 (± 5.2), significantly higher than the average
of patients with MDD (10.5; ± 5.0). Even after analysis adjusted for comorbidity with
some anxiety disorder, the AE scores of the TB group patients were
significantly higher than the TMD group (β 1.54 95% CI 0.10 to 2.99). Conclusion: This study
revealed that childhood trauma may be the differential in the diagnosis of TB compared to MDD,
especially the AE scores.

The present study sought to understand how the family context can serve as a risk and
protection factor in the therapeutic process. Understanding the mechanisms of this concept develops
through the observation of the interaction between individual and environmental characteristics,
enabling the identification of vulnerability, risk and protection factors (YUNES AND
SZYMANSKY, 2001). Risk factors are related to vulnerability, when
present, increase the likelihood of the individual having problems. This is a
qualitative exploratory research (RUTTER, 1999 AND CECCONELLO, 2003). The selection of
therapists was for convenience. A semi-structured interview was conducted with each therapist.
The results were divided into categories that aim to delineate specificities of each of
these dimensions. The results suggest that, among the risk factors are related to
difficulties in family relationships, repetition of family history, amount of family support
received, situations of violence, beliefs and values about parenting, neglect,
drug abuse Among the protective factors are: satisfactory family relationship,
positive social reference , support network of quality extrafamily people, support received from the family,
positive impact, reformulation of beliefs, reorganization of roles performed,
individual and family empowerment, communication assertive, affectionate and empathetic. In crises and
In new situations there is an attempt to return to the previous balance, but having flexibility,
members are able to modify themselves to meet the demands demanded (OSORIO,
2009). Risk and protection factors include the way individuals perceive and
face crises, having a strong influence on their history and routines, as well as the context
and the moment in the life cycle. The challenge will no longer be
conflict resolution and will extend beyond: minimizing vulnerabilities and investing in
protective elements uniquely (WALSH, 2005).

crack users, studies are needed to evaluate and understand their social interactions. Of this
Thus, the objective was to evaluate the social skills of women crack users, understanding
their life trajectory. This is a mixed method study of quantitative -

sociodemographic questionnaire , Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview (MINI),
WAIS-III Cognitive Screening , Social Skills Inventory and Clinical Interview on
Life Trajectory and Social Skills. Data were analyzed by descriptive and inferential statistics
from the SPSS, as well as qualitative analysis of the interviews. Participated in the quantitative stage 62
women, with a mean age of 33.45 years (SD = 8.14), and in the qualitative stage three women with
at least two social skills deficits in the hospital due to crack use.
Women with psychotic syndrome and cognitive impairment were excluded. The results of the
quantitative step indicated that most women presented deficits in social skills of
conversation and social resourcefulness, self-exposure to strangers and new situations and
self-control of aggression. Such deficits were also identified in the qualitative stage,
understanding that the participants shared difficulties in using
social skills since childhood, as well as at the time of hospitalization. The clinical interview
complemented the data obtained in the inventory, which was not sensitive to the type of response issued
(aggressive, assertive and passive). It is concluded that social skills can be developed throughout
the life cycle, including during treatment, with interventions such as

The brain is the object of the most complex and fascinating study, in which scholars are
dedicated to deciphering. Studies show us that humans have more than 40 types of memories,
and are finding that there may be more. Intelligence is the brain response to these memories,
and makes us know, understand and manifest in thought or behavior. With
advances in technology, it is possible to measure the intelligence quotient (IQ) of each individual, through
neuropsychological tests, the current estimate of the average human IQ is between 85 to 99
points, being below, bearer of intellectual deviations. and above considered gifted. The
emotional intelligence is a psychological construct and is among the 7 existing intelligence, and it
is divided into five categories being, self - awareness, emotional control, motivation,
interpersonal skills and ease in recognizing the emotions of others. The individual
who has this intellectual advantage is the one who can motivate himself, and does not allow himself
Shaken by the negative occurrences of their daily lives, we realize this similarity in people who
have a leadership profile, because in addition to having their motivated psyche, they can arouse
the best of each person who relates, simply because of their persuasive power. The
aim of this paper is to evaluate whether it is possible to raise intellectual standards in individuals who
do not have above average emotional intelligence simply by practicing techniques
applied by scholars on this subject. This research was conducted with experience reports. The
evaluation of the emotional intelligence pattern was through the anamnesis, being through the
individual's speech , answering a questionnaire with questions, where the evaluated one reported the abilities
coincident with those of the questionnaire, together with a performance evaluation, which allowed
measuring performance in the application of specific tasks. Emotional intelligence, like other
skills, is very important for a rewarding and satisfying life, its
specific functions , especially linked to self-motivation, is a very important ally against the
depressive state and has an essential function for a moving mind. the

Depression is a psychopathology characterized by depressed mood or lack of motivation, loss
of interest, pleasure, tiredness and fatigue. In addition, changes in body weight,
sleep impairment, poor concentration, feeling of worthlessness or guilt may occur The
key diagnostic problem is the fact that the elaborate existing classification systems,
they are based only on subjective descriptions of symptoms. During stress
, physiological responses, including hormone secretion, especially cortisol,
are known to be associated with the maintenance of the body, such as metabolic regulation,
stress response , central nervous system regulation, and immune responses. It is the precursor
of the fight and flight mechanism, where its secretion is due to the alertness of the individual,
generating cognitive and physiological alterations, enabling the best behavioral response.
More recent theories link depression to physiological changes in the functioning of the HHA axis
(hypothalamus, pituitary gland, adrenal gland) and neurotransmission. Stress Triggers Depression
and its action is not located in a specific neural area, but rather an activation of
neural circuits by neuroendocrine responses. Therefore, cortisol analysis is relevant
in depressive and stressful conditions. The aim of this paper is to discuss the physiological and

is performed empirically seeking to correlate cortisol levels and

Faced with a situation of hospitalization, there are several difficulties that a subject may experience
, whether related to the sequelae of the disease / trauma or adaptation to routine. Thus, the
importance of affective ties becomes even more evident, as emotional issues may
arise and the family is most likely to offer support and support to the patient. When
talking about family, in the references to all members of the nucleus that participate in it, which
mostly include children and adolescents. Despite the restrictions on the part of
hospital institutions , as well as in the Porto Alegre Emergency Room
entry of minors, their presence turns out to be of fundamental importance to the
situation as a whole, benefiting patient, family and staff. This study aims to report
the work experience of psychology in assessing and monitoring the child or adolescent during
the visiting period of family in a hospital environment. The results showed the benefits
for both the hospitalized patient, who may be closer to his / her family member, usually a child,
reducing the suffering caused by the withdrawal of his / her family nucleus, also contributing
to the relief of anxiety; as for the underage, who can know the real condition of their
family member, facilitating the understanding of changes in family routine and assisting in the
coping with the situation. Thus, this study shows the importance of having family members
close to the patient, thus contributing to their treatment and hospitalization process
, making the hospital environment more affective and humanized. In addition, it contributes to the
appreciation of the work of the psychologist in order to demonstrate the relevance of
proper technical management that favors the effective participation of the family in patient care.

aiming at subjective well-being and the consolidation of protective factors, promoting resilience. The
present report illustrates the work carried out at an elementary school in a city
in the interior of Rio Grande do Sul.
eight months. During this period, various interventions were used and the choice of the themes
worked was listed from the demands that arose in the place. The activities were
developed based on Bronfenbrenner's Bioecological Theory of Development, which
prioritizes the person, the context, the process and the time. Considering the vulnerabilities of the
population, promoting resilience was the main objective. Through the group modality,
some concepts such as children's rights, bullying, sexuality and social skills were worked out.
The groups aimed to promote mental health and violence prevention, strengthen
protective factors as well as develop skills to better deal with risk factors and
other contingencies of individuals in the school microsystem. In addition,
individual guidance and counseling were provided with students and parents. Working with teachers
helped in the daily demands of the school, as well as being a space for listening to the difficulties
faced by the Board in managing conflicting relationships with parents. The process was rated
as positive by both the students and the management and teaching staff. The results demonstrate
the relevance of preventive actions in schools and the need to develop more interventions
that promote the development of individuals in their different contexts.

Adolescence is a phase of the life cycle full of changes, in one's own body or in
family and social relationships Among the conflicts of this stage, one can cite the transgression, marking the
boundary experimentation expected in the individuation process. However, when it reaches
society, it is considered an offense, liable to socio-educational measures. Young people
who reach this extreme mostly come from a context in which violence was already part
of their daily lives, leaving marks on the individual. These factors make clear the
immediate need to seek social interventions that try to expand the possibilities for these
already marginalized adolescents. In this sense, the project Vida na Cena aims to broaden the
perceptions of young people who are complying with deprivation of liberty in
a CASE in the state capital of Rio Grande do Sul. The project is a voluntary action that uses the
cinema as a therapeutic device in the prevention and health promotion, proposing the discussion of
the infraction and violence that permeates the daily life of these subjects. The workshop was structured to
take place weekly over three months, in a group format consisting of around
ten teenagers. The idea is to encourage discussion in a playful way, facilitating reflection and
notes, bringing the protagonism of these young people so that they can have autonomy to make
their own choices, since often no other way than crime was
presented to them This is an ongoing project, not yet complete its data collection and
making a conclusion impossible, but we need to talk about ways to look for it.
problematize issues such as youth violence in an attempt to dialogue with the main
actors in this situation: the adolescents themselves in conflict with the law.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (TCD) is a psychotherapeutic approach to
psychopathological conditions in which there is emotional dysregulation. The mechanisms of action of TCD include
the use of mindfulness, emotional regulation, stress management, and
interpersonal effectiveness skills trained in the early phase of treatment. There are no studies on the effectiveness and
mechanisms of action of TCD in the Brazilian population. The availability of
assessment tools for the active components of this intervention may facilitate studies that
fill this gap. Thus, this instrumental design work aims to
adapt the DBT Ways of Coping Checklist (DBT-WCCL) to Brazilian Portuguese. The DBT-WCCL
It consists of 59 items that evaluate the use of coping strategies in
stressful situations Items are grouped into three dimensions: DBT skills,
general maladaptive strategies, and blaming strategies. The method consists of 6 stages of adaptation
and testing of the instrument: (1) Elaboration of three versions by independent translators. (2)
Synthesis of translations in a preliminary version, after evaluations by three judges with knowledge
in psychological evaluation. (3) Submission of the preliminary version to the judgment of five
TCD experts , verifying clarity and adequacy of the items and requesting suggestions for improvement
when necessary. (4) Reformulation of items based on expert suggestions. (5) Rating
by the target population (participants in TCD skills training) and the general population
regarding the comprehensibility of the items and pertinence to the respective dimensions. (6) Reformulation
of items with low scores in comprehensibility or relevance, generating a final version of the
scale. The study is in phase 4. There was a need for reformulation and removal of
some items considered problematic by experts, especially regarding the theoretical relevance
and semantic and cultural adequacy. The complexity of the adaptation process is evident,
necessarily surpassing the simple literal translation of items.

This paper addresses the impact and treatment in therapy of bereaved families as a result
of violent death. This type of death is unexpected, sudden and causes great impact and shock on
its survivors. Such a situation may have different possible consequences, such as;
shock, surprise, perplexity and intense stress of the bereaved (Currier, Niemayer,
2006). In this sense, it is known that such traumatic events can lead families to experience
the elaboration of grief in different ways, ranging from expected grief to complicated grief, or
even post-traumatic stress disorder and suicide (Worden, 2013). We used as a method
the collective case study of two families who sought care at a
psychology school service of a University Center of Porto Alegre, after the loss of their families
due to death by violence. In both cases there is a situation of parental homicide against
other family members. Psychotherapies involved widows and bereaved children. Analyze
the grieving process of each case, which, although presenting similar demands
for death by violence, triggered quite different impacts and ways of coping.
In addition, we report the main points of both care involved,
bereavement psychoeducation , handling with bereaved children, planning farewell rituals and
reorganizing family dynamics. Since violent deaths have been increasingly
frequent in our society, this paper aims to contribute to the reflection on ways to
intervene with families affected by these situations.

Obesity is a complex disorder of multifactorial etiology resulting from an imbalance
between energy intake and its effects. spending. Despite numerous attempts at nutrition education
and encouraging physical activity present to the population, the increase of obese individuals in the
world does not stop growing. Based on this premise, the Context Health program, developed
and implemented in the city of Porto Alegre since 2016, has as its central objective the promotion of health
through food balance and psychological flexibility. Coordinated by nutritionists and
psychologists, the treatment protocol lasts for twelve weeks and in a
closed group format It is structured in Contextual Behavioral Therapies and Behavioral Nutrition,
developing Mindfulness skills in all scheduled encounters. In order to clarify the
processes developed throughout the program, this paper aims to present the
evolution of the Violeta patient in the Context Health program (PCS), through a case study,
correlating the changes achieved with each meeting. An
informed consent form was previously given to the patient, authorizing her participation in the program to be
accompanied by a qualitative study. Among the results, we highlight the increase in
psychological flexibility , anchored in a greater acceptance of internal experiences and awareness of
eating behaviors, demonstrated in the report: “Today, almost 3 months after the
meetings are over, I already recognize myself differently and better. I separate my meals,
exercise almost daily, and accept my tiredness or unwillingness when I don't want to
do nothing. Just like my will and need when I want to eat something more caloric.
Today I feel balanced in many ways. ”Finally, contextual work focusing on
mindfulness brings benefits as it broadens perspective, cultivates compassion,
increases value-based motivation, and promotes committed action.

Social skills can be characterized as a class of learned responses that
constitute the behavioral repertoire of the individual. In the university environment,
public speaking behaviors and establishing interpersonal relationships are
essential elements for academic and social performance, and are a protective factor against losses.
Psychological This paper aims to evaluate the repertoire of social skills in college
students. This is a quantitative, observational study with a sample of 62 students from a
higher education institution in Rio Grande do Sul. The study was authorized by the
Research Ethics Committee of IMED. The instruments used were: Sociodemographic Data Sheet and
Social Skills Inventory (IHS-Del Prette), with 38 items to assess the repertoire of
social skills in everyday situations. It has five factors: Factor 1- coping and
risky self-assertion; Factor 2- self-affirmation in the expression of positive feeling; Factor 3-
conversation and social resourcefulness; Factor 4- self exposure to strangers and new situations; and
Factor 5- aggressiveness self-control, with satisfactory internal consistency (α = 0.75). Of the
sample, 74.2% (n = 46) were women, while 25.8% (n = 16) men, with a mean age of
28.08 years (SD = 10.27). Regarding marital status, 75.8% (n = 47) were single; 14.5% (n = 9) married;
4.8% (n = 3) divorced; and 4.8% (n = 3) with stable union. In IHS-Del Prette, 54.8% (n = 34) subjects
had indication for social skills training in the total score. In
factor scores , F2 showed higher index of social skills deficit repertoire with 66.1%
(n = 41) of the subjects, followed by F3 with 48.4% (n = 30), F1 with 32.3% (n = 20), while F5 obtained
30.6% (n = 19). The most preserved factor with the lowest repertoire index
deficit was F4, with 11.3% (n = 7). It is concluded that there is a deficient behavioral repertoire
in social skills in the sample of academics investigated, evidencing indication for
social skills training.

Training in social skills is an intervention based on the cognitive
behavioral approach and protocol of Vicente Caballo (2003) that aims to teach strategies and
interpersonal skills, with the intention of improving interpersonal and individual competence (Del
Prette & Del Prette, 2003). The aim of this paper is to report the experience of a
group intervention for learning and development of social skills. The intervention
sought to develop in the participants a repertoire of social skills, improving their
interactions and interpersonal experiences. Twenty-five people participated in the group: thirteen
women and twelve men between 14 and 69 years old. The training was conducted in four
two-hour meetings , with the following structure: (1) psychoeducation, (2) exchange of
personal experiences , (3) training strategies for managing anxiety symptoms and social situations,
(4 ) meeting summary, (5) encouragement of homework and (6) feedback. The intervention
was assessed qualitatively through participants' verbalizations: "I am trying to be
more affective, showing more my feelings and putting myself in the other's shoes" -
participant brings flowers to the coordinators and colleagues on the last day of the group, exercising
the show of affection and pleasure. Positive therapeutic results were observed through the
interaction among the participants, since the training itself allowed space for exchange and encouragement
between them: "it was very good to participate in the group and see that it is not only me who has these difficulties!".
The evaluation of the intervention showed evidence of the effectiveness of training in
social skills , previously identified in the literature as protective factors in the course of
human development. Reaching the goal of the intervention, participants had
decreased anxiety symptoms, better expression of feelings, greater assertiveness in
interactions, thus characterizing an improvement in coping with social situations.

Given the significant number of marital separations and the impact of this experience on
In families, the need for the psychology professional to be prepared to act in this
context is highlighted In this regard, in 2015 the “Enlaces” university extension project was created, carried out
at the Federal University of Santa Maria (UFSM), which offers free psychological care
to families who are passing or who have passed through marital separation. The project
aims to be a learning space for psychology students, as well as providing
support to fragile families, providing moments of listening and support, promoting the
quality of relationships and the exercise of family roles. The proposal stems from the
umbrella project “The Family against Marital Separation”, developed by the Nucleus of Studies
Family and Relations (NEFRE). The interventions are developed in the clinic
of the Department of Psychology of UFSM, involving students of the Psychology course, the
Graduate Program in Psychology and psychologists linked to NEFRE. The
project was disseminated with leaflets and posters placed at the Judicial Assistance Centers and at the
Psychology Schools Clinics of the city of Santa Maria, on the UFSM website and on social networks. Participating
families are invited to sign an Informed Consent Form and
a Mirror Room Consent Form In addition, the therapist uses an
Identification Form with sociodemographic data, Genogram and
attendances, materials that remain stored in the clinic. The visits are weekly,
lasting approximately 50 minutes, based on the
Systemic Family Therapy Parallel to the attendance, the students and psychologists involved participate in
weekly meetings, to discuss the cases and study the theme. The practice hopes to strengthen the
bonds between university and society, and promote the emotional health of families.

Deafness is characterized as a change in the auditory system interfering with access to
stimuli sound Deaf children with hearing parents constitute a distinct family environment,
where there is the incorporation of sign language and modifications in the whole context of relationships, in the routine
and family dynamics. This case study aimed to understand the group phenomenon and to intervene
in a group of eight hearing mothers with pre-adolescent deaf children and adolescents.
The group in question occurred weekly and was articulated from the perspective of a
family configuration support group that includes a deaf child. As instruments, on-
site observations were used A qualitative analysis of the content of
the participants ' observations and speeches was chosen, using concepts such as communication, bond, roles, resistances,
transference and coordinator's role. A posteriori thematic axes were created based on the main
characteristics that emerged in the group, namely : independence / autonomy of the child;
adolescence and sexuality; discovery of deafness and reorganization of family dynamics; and,
matters beyond the group goal. Four interventions were proposed with the objective of
provide opportunities and enable different forms of communication both in the process of construction and
group evolution as well as in family development and improvement of communication with
children, as well as providing a continuous space for speech and learning in the safe environment that the
group provides and make group movements more flexible. The positive result is the
resignification of the group's objectives and its cast-up behaviors, since, by accepting the
presence of new people in the coordinating role, the group ends up breaking a
working pattern and integrating new perspectives into its dynamics. The proposal was to strengthen
positive aspects of the group, such as existing cohesion, valuing and retaking the objectives under which
the group was built and the repercussions on the mothers' lives. The results lead to the
understanding of the group as a facilitator and necessary as support and support for the participants.
Given this interventional experience, it is suggested the importance of continuous research
focused on the group theme and also the vicissitudes of deafness and family relationships
regarding the arrival of a deaf child.

This research aimed to understand how the end of pregnancy and the puerperium were lived by
primiparous mothers who consider themselves Internet users and the meanings attributed to this lived experience.
Objective: The study investigated whether this period of life has changed as mothers are
routinely connected to the Internet, which can interfere with the process of interaction with their baby
and their ability to indulge themselves. For a better understanding of early mother
-infant relationships, elements of Winnicott's theory and Bowlby's attachment theory were used. We opted
for the hermeneutic phenomenological research with qualitative approach. Were interviewed
two primiparous mothers, who consider themselves Internet users, one 29 and one 31, responsible
for the care of their children, one 7 months and the other 10 months, respectively. Data
were interpreted by thematic analysis. From the units of meaning that emerged,
the phenomenological theme resulted: happy oyster makes pearl, which expressed the essence of the experience
lived by the interviewees. Among the main units of meaning that emerged are: From
seed to sunflower, mothers planned pregnancies that were quiet and healthy and could
stop: by internal, unconscious, or conscious external capacity, both could
break, in the eighth month, with the pace of work, which indicates that we are living what Winnicott
(1993) named Primary Maternal Concern: a very special state of the mother, which
develops gradually, especially in late pregnancy and continues a few weeks after
the birth of the child that enables the mother to withdraw, to marry and connect with her

Psychiatric reform brought new ways of looking, care was shared by
responsible actors in the health process: health services, family, and the subject himself. This
more humane and integral care enabled the discovery and implementation of several
light technologies that expand and improve access to health. Among these devices, it is important to mention
those that encourage user autonomy, such as autonomous medication management - GAM.
Strategy discussed and developed in Canada, spread to Brazil being in the discussion phase
of results. GAM aims to address the problem of medication consumed
irrationally and without information. It is a form of coherent use of drugs and
appropriation of their effects. This paper is the report of the participation of the authors in this
group in an Adult CAPS, seeking to propagate this form of intervention in mental health. The
meetings took place weekly, with the format of an open group that take place in
the health facility itself. Participants are users of the service, which serves people
with severe and persistent mental disorders. As an instrument the GAM Guide is used. At
first glance, we noticed appropriate users of the diagnosis they received, as well as of
all medicines that were used, drawing attention, because it is not something that happens
as often as expected when dealing with subjects with high level of suffering. Thus
, throughout the meetings we realized that far beyond the disease, the discussion was also
centered on the welfare of those present, sharing a space of care and affection.
We conclude that despite being a not so widespread strategy, even within the team,
it is a space of critical formation, which empowers users to know their rights
and be able to decide which path they want to follow during their treatment, being decisive their participation
in the process. decision-making.
