LIMA, Maria Celina Peixoto et al. Art and therapeutic mediation: about one device with adolescents in the school-clinic. Rev.Mal-Estar Subj [online]. 2013, vol.13, n.3-4, pp. 775-796. ISSN 1518-6148.

The intention of this article is to present the results of the Research/Intervention called "Art and therapeutic mediation: about a device with adolescents in the school-clinic". During twenty-four months, eight teenagers, between twelve and eighteen years, enrolled in an Applied Psychology Service and Occupational Therapy at the University of Fortaleza, where, weekly, they followed art workshops, coordinated by trainees coming from the two mentioned courses and Fine Arts Course's monitors. The teenager group had, in common, severe difficulties on school education field. The intervention work aimed, primarily, at the construction of an interdisciplinary clinical device, with the privileged therapeutic mediation of art, considering the adolescents' specific problems, especially those related to the transference. The clinical device was inspired by an institutional work on the psychoanalytic field known as "practices shared by many." The results showed that the transference, in this type of intervention, allows trading with some transference's movements that often arise in the adolescents' psychoanalytic treatment. Simultaneously, the use of art can be considered a therapeutic mediator able to respect these particularities and to promote strategies representing the movement of separation from the primary relations towards to sociability enlarged. Through a shared experience of "re-creation," the passage from one to another, enables new openings to the act of learning.
