OLIVEIRA, Laura Cristina Santos Damásio de  and  MAUX, Ana Andréa Barbosa. The stage of coexistence in cases of adoption: a phenomenological understanding. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2021, vol.27, n.3, pp. 306-315. ISSN 1809-6867.

This theoretical article has as its theme the stage of cohabitation in cases of adoption, a mandatory step in law in which children suitable for adoption pass to live with qualified candidates. It aimed to discuss adoptive filiation and how it occurs in the stage of cohabitation. Legally, this moment must be accompanied by psychosocial team that delivers technical opinion about it. But what happens in this process? What should be observed? A bibliographical review in three Databases concluded that productions on the subject are insipient, especially from the point of view of the Phenomenology. During the cohabitation stage, it's common for parents to try to please the child, or to fear their history, as well as the child try to please or to test limits. Following this period and discussing these issues enables everyone to inhabit this home and these relationships, contributing to greater security in the adoption implementation.
