FERREIRA JUNIOR, Jesaías Leite; BEZERRA, Henrique Jorge Simões  e  ALVES, Edneia de Oliveira. Psychological assistance to the Deaf subject through Libras in Brazil: A literature review. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2021, vol.33, n.3, pp.537-556. ISSN 0103-5665.

From the social model, disability is considered an interactional phenomenon, emerging in the relationship between the individual and his environment. Mental health is assumed to be a human right, and it is the duty of the state and the community to endeavor to include all citizens. The research aimed to verify if Psychology has been focusing on the inclusion of the Deaf, if there are academic records of attendance in Brazilian sign language (Libras) and if the fluency of the psychologists is sufficient to carry it out. The methodology was based on a systematic review of the scientific literature, and on a bibliometric and qualitative analysis of the data. Based on the results, it is possible to see a growing movement for psychological assistance to deaf people using Libras since 2015. However, it is considered necessary to bring professionals from clinical psychology closer to Libras and deaf culture.
