VENOSA, Priscila de Azevedo e Souza. Drug-dependent women psychotherapeutic groups: gender issues involved in treatment. Rev. SPAGESP [online]. 2011, vol.12, n.1, pp. 56-65. ISSN 1677-2970.

The main objective of this work is to contribute with the discussion concerning treatment for drug-dependent women. The purpose is to approach this theme from the author’s experience. It’s based on the idea that researching about the transference in these groups called homogenous in relation to gender and symptom (dependence) can widen the perspectives of handling in this area. From the clinical experience of the author, it is noticeable the women’s preference on talking about the subject of what or how it is “to be a woman” in their free association. The drug dependence appears as a secondary issue in relation to that. In the end, it points that the possibility of widening the ways of “being a woman” by each of them, as it seemed possible in a psychoanalysis-guided group therapy, interfere in the symbiotic bonds between the patient and the drug, bringing advantages, therefore, to the psychotherapeutic effects.
