GUZZO, Fabíola; BOING, Elisangela  e  NARDI, Anne Luisa. From the kidney's paralisation to the life's movement: the perceptions patients of hemodialysis. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2017, vol.23, n.1, pp. 22-31. ISSN 1809-6867.

The chronic renal insufficiency is considered a grave problem of public health in the world. This paper has as goal to know the patient's perceptions with chronic renal insufficiency the process of illness and treatment. It has as base the theoretic referential of Carl Rogers, The Person Centered Approach. It is a qualitative research, of exploratory and descriptive nature. The instrument used was a semi-structured interview, with the use of a roadmap containing a part designed to characterize the participant and another composed of guiding questions. From the content analysis it was created four categories: 1) Perceptions of Disease and Treatment; 2) Changes in the Way of Life; 3) Coping Resources; 4) Changes in Relations. Overall, the study found that in addition to changes in the physical condition, resulting in the limitation of labor and leisure activities show up changes related to mood and way of relating to the world. The difficulty of integration of the disease as part of life appears to be related to self-actualization of difficulty before the new condition. In contrast, overcoming potential appears to be related to the acceptance of the limitation and the construction of a positive meaning for the treatment.
