SILVA, Andressa Melina Becker da  and  ENUMO, Sônia Regina Fiorim. Description and analysis of psychological intervention with dancers by the Software IRAMUTEQ. Temas psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.25, n.2, pp. 577-593. ISSN 1413-389X.

Dancers live daily with pain, but often they do not know how to deal adequately with it. Based on this concern, we developed a psychological intervention for dancers to cope with pain, applied to 14 Jazz dancers, aged between 12 to 17 years old (M= 14.63; SD= 1.42), who have been competing internationally. This study presents the use of a software for analysis of the verbal reports of dancers and the mediator presented along the psychological intervention. Using the IRAMUTEQ software, we did the held monothematic and thematic analysis on three textual corpus by Hierarchic Analysis Descendant and Similarity Analysis. In the first corpus (mediator reports), were resulted in 5 classes -Sensory Process, Pain Register, Intervention Process, Techniques for Stress Management, Coping and Post-Coping. In the second corpus (dancer reports), 5 classes - Challenges in the Pain Game, Dance Risks, Pain Dilemmas, Imagery Training and Relaxing, and Adjustment to the Options Available in the Social Environment. In the third corpus (dancers and mediator reports), 4 classes - Imagination Process, Process of Coping with Pain, Techniques for Stress Management, Process of Evaluation and Intervention. The software showed useful and effective for psychological intervention content analysis.
