PAULA, Carolina Antonia Goulart de  e  TACHIBANA, Miriam. And what about the family caregivers of hospitalized psychiatric patients?. Vínculo [online]. 2019, vol.16, n.2, pp. 44-67. ISSN 1806-2490.

With the Psychiatric Reform, relatives were considered protagonists in the care of psychiatric patients. This study aimed at investigating the emotional experience of family caregivers of hospitalized psychiatric patients. Interviews have been conducted with ten relatives of patients who were admitted to a psychiatric unit of a general hospital in a town in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. They were mediated by the presentation of four illustrations created especially for the research to facilitate communication. A transferential narrative was drawn up after each interview. The material was analyzed according to the psychoanalytical method and organized according to the Theory of Fields. Three fields were identified through which the participants temporally expressed imaginative productions about what had happened before the crisis, the discomfort experienced in that period and the future to be unveiled. It is concluded that the emotional experience of relatives is marked by profound emotional distress, indicating the insufficiency of the interventions that have been provided to them, at least when they hospitalize their relatives.
