RUIZ, Valéria Salek et al. François Tosquelles, their history in the Psychiatric Reform: Deinstitutionalizationand their clues to a clinical approach focused on the work activity. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2013, vol.13, n.3, pp. 855-877. ISSN 1808-4281.

This paper raises some aspects of the life and work of the Catalan psychiatrist Francois Tosquelles, recording the history and heritage of his experiments in the mental health area, especially, in making the activity invaluable. It was pursued to a conduct a bibliographical survey on the texts published by him was sought after as well as on the interviews he gave, in addition to materials published by several other authors who refer to him or his work. We take it that there is still an unexplored richness in various Psychology fields, whether in the struggle for deinstitutionalization and psychiatric reform with new forms of psychosocial care whether in the pursuit of possibilities for intervention research and, finally, exploring the activity viewpoint in relation to the clinic approach of work.
