FERNANDES, Valéria dos Santos  and  LEONIDAS, Carolina. Family assistance cras in family members of users of the continued payment benefit. Rev. SPAGESP [online]. 2021, vol.22, n.2, pp. 89-103. ISSN 1677-2970.

ABSTRACT This research analyzed the perspective of families benefiting from the Continued Payment Benefit (BPC) about the family care assistance service performed by psychologists in a city in the interior of Minas Gerais. Participants were eight families of individuals diagnosed with mental disorders that received BPC and were inserted into eight CRAS unities. The instrument used was a semistructured interview script. Data were submitted to content analysis in thematic modality from Bardin. Results showed that family members were unaware of both family care assistance service and their Social Rights. Consequently, they had not developed autonomy. Moreover, although the psychologists did not perform clinical care, the need for them to develop therapeutic assistance to embrace the emotional demands of family members was evident.
