MARTINS, Aline Gomes et al. The Regional Reference Centre on Drug Policy Education of Federal University of São João del-Rei and the Active Training Methodology as a teaching and learning tool. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2016, vol.11, n.3, pp. 682-692. ISSN 1809-8908.

The Brazilian mental health is marked by knowledges and practices based on stigmatizing aspects of the drug user. The psychiatric reform has allowed some changes. However, those primary knowledges left traces in public policy and in the care network for alcohol and other drugs users. Professionals who deal with this issue are eager to receive training. Therefore, strategies of continuing education were created, such as the Regional Reference Centers for Public Policy on Drugs (CRRs). The CRR from Federal University of Sao Joao del-Rei is the focus of this work, as well the as active training methodology. This methodology enabled us to contemplate the issue of drugs from a critical-reflexive proposal that takes into account the experience of professionals, allowing new ways of thinking and being as professionals and active subjects.

Keywords : Regional Reference Centers; active training methodology; problematization.
