QUEIROZ, Isabela Saraiva de; JARDIM, Ôni Márcia  y  ALVES, Mariana Gonçalves de Deus. "Hearing on the patio": providing care and bonding as harm reduction practices. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2016, vol.11, n.3, pp. 650-668. ISSN 1809-8908.

This paper presents a proposal ofa supervised internshipin Psychology carried out at a CAPS ad (Center for Psychosocial Attention, Alcohol and Drugs) named "Hearing on the patio". To substantiate this practice we present the prohibitionist paradigm and its influence on the constitution of interventions for drug users, initially grounded on the moral-legal speech and the devices of criminalization and medicalization, and then we discuss the harm reduction paradigm and the possibilities of creating individualized, humane interventions, which inspired this internship proposal. The methodology hereby adopted is oriented by the assumptions of integrated health care and expanded clinic, and presented as a care mechanism that provides a high quality hearing service through both individual and in-group unscheduled conversations, spontaneously requested by the users. We observed that the usage of relational technologies in health care tends to strengthen acceptance and bonding, amplifying the effectiveness of the actions by favoring users' participation and their engagement at the elaboration of care and preservation strategies.

Palabras clave : Drug use; harm reduction; health care; relational technologies.
