GONCALVES, Lorrany de Oliveira; FARINHA, Marciana Gonçalves  e  GOTO, Tommy Akira. Prompt psychological attention in basic health unit: care in humanistic-phenomenological approach. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2016, vol.22, n.2, pp. 225-232. ISSN 1809-6867.

Analyzing the psychologist's role in primary health care we understand this occupation can contribute complementing or being partner of the medical staff. We understand this work could be wider in a prompt psychological attention (PP), in which we can attend the patients in the moment of their needs. This study is qualitative-descriptive and tries to analyze psychological assistances made in a medical center (MC). This research comprehends 13 people between 10 and 80 years old; 12 people are female and 01 male. Most of them have low income and low education level. Firstly, these assistances happened as PP and, when necessary, the patients were invited to continue their assistance in psychotherapy. These assistances had as theoretical background existential-phenomenological. Most patients presented complaints of depression linked to their families. There were others complaints linked to mourning, anxiety, pregnancy, and one case of obsessive-compulsive disorder. Many patients preferred to seek PP again whenever they felt the need instead of starting a psychotherapy. We conclude that prompt psychological attention (PP) is a viable and pertinent instrument for health care and prevention.
