SCHLEDER, Karoline Stoltz  e  HOLANDA, Adriano Furtado. Nise da Silveira and the phenomenological approach. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2015, vol.21, n.1, pp. 49-61. ISSN 1809-6867.

The aim of this study is to promote a dialogue between the work of Brazilian psychiatrist Nise da Silveira (1905-1999) and the phenomenological approach. Although Nise da Silveira was not directly involved with phenomenology, her work, concept of subject and attitude toward patients are similar. This is a bibliographic-qualitative study in which a literature review was conducted using SciELO, LILACS and PePSIC databases, in addition to analysis of primary and secondary bibliographies on Nise da Silveira. 13 primary and 20 secondary bibliographies were found, 13 are related to the literature review in the databases. Most of the bibliography reflects on Nise da Silveira's pioneer work with schizophrenic patients at the Occupational Therapy Section, at the Engenho de Dentro Hospital, at the Imagens do Inconsciente Museum and at the Casa das Palmeiras and recognizes her as one of the forerunners of the anti-psychiatry movement in Brazil. Her appreciation of practice; emphasis on observation of subjects in their own context, beyond psychopathology; in addition to the defense of the therapeutic potential of working with animals, creative expression and the importance of empathy, point to a position very close to the phenomenological attitude: it places brackets around illness, in order to understand schizophrenia as one of the possible ways of being in the world.

Palavras-chave : Nise da Silveira; Phenomenology; History of psychology.
