SACOMANO, Felipe; FARIA, Nilton Júlio de  e  FERRETE, Yuri Alexandre. Humanistic psychology in "psicologia atual" journal from 1977-1986: a hermeneutic approach. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2016, vol.22, n.1, pp. 68-78. ISSN 1809-6867.

The 1970 and 1980 decades were times of great social transformations in Brazil. Psychology, as a profession, appeared in the 70's as a useful novelty for those who seeked alternatives to the principles proclaimed by the military dictatorship, and at the same time serving as a way to maintain such divergent values. The creation of psychology courses, and the social acceptance of this science and it's profession allowed for the development of medias that eased the propagation of knowledge and of psychological affairs. Amongst these medias, the journal Psicologia Atual stands out, it was first published in 1977 and lasted until 1986, brought by the Grupo Editorial Spagat. This research had in it's purpose to identify diferent contents associated with Humanistic Psychology published in the journal, identifying their conceivers and infer meanings which were assigned to these. The identified contents were categorized in articles, reports and interviews, whose contents were analised by the hermeneutic method proposed by Hans-Georg Gadamer. The results indicated the prevalence of Psychodrama, followed by Gestalt Therapy and Person-Centred Approach, in the articles and interviews categories. The reports announced notable foreign psichologist's visits to Brazil. It is concluded that Humanistic Psychology displayed a concern with social issues relevant to the time period, such as family, inwardness, sexuality and work, contributing to a subjectivist vision to which, many times, it is associated.
