BAZILIO, Jennifer  e  CAMPOS, Claudinei José Gomes. Symbolic aspects involved in group activity for persons who live with HIV. SMAD, Rev. Eletrônica Saúde Mental Álcool Drog. (Ed. port.) [online]. 2017, vol.13, n.1, pp. 13-21. ISSN 1806-6976.

This is a qualitative and descriptive work, which has used the clinical and qualitative method.  The sample was composed of nine patients living with HIV. We used the interview technique with semi-structured questions to collect data. The data were analyzed using the method of content analysis. Our objective was to describe the symbolic representations that emerged during the group activity, assigned to patients with HIV/AIDS. We conclude that the symbolic is very strong and representative in the life of this population. The myth surrounding HIV can be overcome by knowledge acquired during meetings in groups. Alternatives that offer care aimed at populations that tend to social isolation and exclusion should be encouraged by health professionals and their managers.
