ANTUNEZ, Andrés Eduardo Aguirre et al. Phenomenology of Life in clinical researches. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2018, vol.24, n.3, pp. 312-318. ISSN 1809-6867.

We will present a possible operationalization of Michel Henry's Phenomenology of Life and his method in clinical situations. This method investigates the concept developed by Michel Henry in this phenomenology called corpspropriation and the reflexive intuition in the comprehension and clinical intervention. It is a therapeutic relationship in health institutions that is placed In the foreground, both in the care of an adult patient with psychiatric disorder and in a group with sheltered children. It is verified how therapists body-apropriation of their patients and how they body-appropriate their sufferings in clinical care, as well as the use of intuitive reflections in dialogue. The results show that a sick body can be humanized in the therapeutic relationship and has possibilities of embodying experiences, thus increasing the affective mobility, of suffering when enjoying oneself. However, if the relationship does not have support and continuity, it is difficult to achieve the stability of this transformation, but leaves marks rooted in each inter-human encounter.

Keywords : Corpspropriation, Michel Henry, Psychotherapy; Group Therapy; Sheltered children.
