SPOHR, Bianca. Psychiatrical logic and reform in mental health. Mental [online]. 2011, vol.9, n.17, pp. 559-570. ISSN 1679-4427.

This article discusses the disproportion between the theoretical prerogatives of the reform in mental health and the health professionals' practice in services. Initially, it aims to place the problem showing how psychiatry has consolidated itself from a biological understanding of madness. In following, it shows that this understanding has produced treatments guided by isolation, dependence and violence, which, in spite of being currently struggled, (they) have left their marks on patients, relatives and society. At last, it's known that the psychiatrical reform has created laws and restructured the services, but it still faces difficulties at handling professionals in theoretical and practical terms. It's urgent, then, to remain open a field of debates, since for intervening well it's necessary first to understand.

Palavras-chave : Psychiatry; psychiatrical reform; health professionals; theory; practice.
