FREITAS, Víctor Cruz de; RIBAS, Ka  and  CECCARELLI, Paulo Roberto. Extraordinary experiences between shamanism and psychoanalysis: a cross-cultural psychopathological reflection. Estud. psicanal. [online]. 2019, n.52, pp. 147-160. ISSN 0100-3437.

In this work we propose to share our “extraordinary experiences” beyond the psychoanalytic setting, arising from the Integra-Ativa Health Space project. This project was created by two psychoanalysts and a shaman / healer, with the objective of providing lectures and promoting discussions about the benefits of integrative practices and complementary health services (PIC) for mental health and other practices similar to these, as was the case with shamanism. In an integrative perspective between shamanism and psychoanalysis, according to the perspective of fundamental and cross-cultural psychopathology, reflections on these extraordinary experiences are proposed. The question remains: what are the risks of cultural countertransference becoming defense, when the constitutive universals of the human proposed by psychoanalysis are differentiated according to cultures.

Keywords : Shamanism; Psychoanalysis; Transculturality; Cultural countertransference.
