SIQUEIRA, Ana Beatriz Rossato et al. Group workshops for health promotion: experience with primary health care workers. Vínculo [online]. 2019, vol.16, n.2, pp. 1-22. ISSN 1806-2490.

Group work within institutions and in the field of public health has been highlighted as relevant and necessary given the potential it has to promote health and strengthen the bond between people. This study aimed to report the academic professional experience of performing interventions in a Primary Health Care Service within Minas Gerais state, Brazil. Four meetings were held with the workers in the form of group workshops (during 1-hour each). They were coordinated by a group composed of four Psychology students under the supervision of teachers that are affiliated to a public university and were inspired by the theoretical-technical model of the teaching and learning operating groups. The experiences reproduced results that allowed the participants to express feelings, thoughts and also to reflect on strategies that could be adopted to coping dissatisfaction at work environment, especially characterized by precarious relations and working conditions. The developed group process was considered a tool that allowed the creation of spaces for reflections collectively built on the work itself and on the limitations and potentialities that are inherent to it, also leading to thinking about peer relations.

Keywords : group workshops; occupational health; psychologist education; health professional’s education.
