ALT, Fernanda; CAMPOS, Carolina Mendes  e  BARATA, André. Difficulties, challenges and possibilities for a Sartrean clinic. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.2, pp. 198-204. ISSN 1809-6867.

Reflecting on the possibility of a phenomenological-existential clinical is still a great challenge for professionals and scholars of such field. Because it is a work that stems from philosophy, it sometimes proves to be more difficult, as it shows to have a lack of psychological assumptions. However, this gap, far from being an impediment, opens our minds up for thinking about a clinical cleared of its scientistic and positivist ties that have permeated psychology since its birth. Faced with this possibility, we highlight among the existential and phenomenological philosophies the one of Jean-Paul Sartre, owing to his constant concern during his extensive work to critically consider psychological theories. It is before this scenario that we intend in this article to raise some considerations about the challenge of thinking and realizing an existential-phenomenological psychology keeping in mind, at the same time, the importance of preserving the critical character of which it is originated. To this end, we discussed the problem of the “importation” of concepts by considering some fundamental notions of Sartre’s thought, like freedom and bad faith.
