SANTOS FILHO, Júlio Manoel dos  and  COSTA, Virgínia Elizabeth Suassuna Martins. Meeting a schizophrenic way of being: art and technique in gestalt-therapy. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2016, vol.22, n.1, pp. 27-36. ISSN 1809-6867.

The schizophrenia is traditionally considered a mental disorder that involves the presence of psychotic symptoms: unusual behaviors as delusions and hallucinations. In Gestalt-therapy comprehension, schizophrenia as others psychopathologies, is considered a dialogue attempt which was aborted. So, enabling dialogue continuity results in existential health promotion. Seeking a demonstration about how the therapeutic meeting can help to promote the existential health, this study uses the phenomenological perspective and the Gestalt-therapy theoretical references. In the case presented in this paper, it is shown that the own experience contact encouraged in psychotherapy enables the client's new existential contents flux.
