MENEZES, Etiene Silveira de; KANTORSKI, Luciane Prado; COUTO, Maria Laura de Oliveira  and  RAMOS, Camila Irigonhé. Group of adolescents in mental health services: a psychosocial rehabilitation tool. Vínculo [online]. 2020, vol.17, n.2, pp.118-140. ISSN 1806-2490.

This study aimed to understand the functioning dynamics of the adolescent's groups coordinated by nurses in Psychosocial Care Centers. It is a qualitative research. Data collection was carried out between March and May 2019. During this period, systematic observations were carried out in adolescents groups of two psychosocial care centers. The observations were recorded in a field diary, and discursive interviews were conducted with the nurse coordinators of these groups. Thematic analysis of the data was based on the theoretical framework of Pichon-Rivière groups. It was evident that group techniques were fundamental as psychosocial rehabilitation practices for adolescents in these groups, as this is a period of many doubts and experiments. However, nurses do not always coordinate groups based on a theoretical framework. It is considered that theoretical guidance is important for the development of this therapy. Finally, Pichon-Rivière's theory proved to be a possible approach to think about the nurse's practice in group care at CAPS.
