MAZZO, Celina Magali Fonseca  e  ALMEIDA, Josiane Maria Tiago de. The meaning of being a father today: a study in the Gestalt approach. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2020, vol.26, n.1, pp. 26-37. ISSN 1809-6867.

Changes in family relations and in the world socioeconomic panorama have led to a review of the roles of men and women in the exercise of their children's education. Aiming to know the reflexes of these changes, this research had as main objective to understand, from the point of view of the gestaltic approach, the meaning of being a father for man today. Six fathers between 30 and 40 years old, with children between the ages of 2 and 11, participated in the study. The data were collected through a semi-structured interview and for its analysis was used the Giorgi phenomenological method. Four main categories were found: responsibility, closeness and coexistence, expressing affection and being a better father. It was noted that the father of the present is in the process of transformation, in a movement of closer approach of the children, seeking a more affective and meaningful relationship.
