SILVA, Milena da Rosa et al. Registering psychotherapy sessions: report, record or transcription? considerations on the differences between the registries. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2014, vol.26, n.2, pp. 121-138. ISSN 0103-5665.

The theme of recording sessions is not a consensus in the literature. Authors mention the possibility of expanding knowledge and deeper understanding of what goes on in sessions, highlighting the importance of recording them for studies of the psychotherapeutic process. Others emphasize the patient´s exposure and negative interference of recording in the process and the development of therapeutic alliance. This present study aimed to examine different ways of recording sessions of psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Consists on a survey of differences and particularities of audio recording, transcription and reporting by psychotherapist's memory of a psychotherapy session. The source of information is coming from three consecutive sessions of a treatment of a 19 years old patient, which were analyzed qualitatively by a research group formed by psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, psychologists and psychology students. The main difference was the existence of contextualization and countertransference feelings in the report by psychotherapist memory, which gave vitality to the material. The experience of listening the audio was considered tiresome, but brought the possibility of listening the manner and voice tone between therapist and patient. Considerations were settled about contents listed in the transcripts but not in report by psychotherapist memory, identifying that material's essence remained the same, although transformed by therapist's experience.
