LEVY, Virgínia Lima dos Santos  e  SCHNEIDER, Daniela Ribeiro. Crack users: life stories and subjectivity in audiovisual narratives. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2019, vol.25, n.3, pp. 246-253. ISSN 1809-6867.

Considering crack abuse as a problem of Public Health, this research aimed to understand the relationship between the life stories and the "being projects" of crack users with the consumption of the substance and related problems. 5 participants were asked to do videos about their life stories and to talk about the process of reflection on their trajectories, thinking about aspects addressed or not of their lives in the films produced by them. The data produced were analyzed according to the Content Analysis proposed by Ruiz-Olabuénaga. It was noticed the act of consuming crack as another human act who creates the subject and his biography, though it is problematic when promotes a "suspension" of the other possibilities of life. It was found that the users themselves tend to adopt standardized discourses on drugs and users, even when they contradict his own life experience, while recognizing that there is something particular in his phenomenon of the use and recovery and treatment’s processes. This research indicates that it is necessary to promote users' reflection about the "person" behind the drug, highlighting the universal and individual aspects of their biographies, with the construction of autobiographical audiovisual narratives as a clinically powerful tool.
