SOUZA, Caroline Zamboni de; ANTON, Leandro Artur  and  OLIVEIRA, Maria Claudia Santos Lopes de. Permanent health education and adult development: an experience based on the Eye's Sensitization Photography Workshop. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.12, n.2, pp. 338-355. ISSN 1983-8220.

This paper presents and analyses an initiative of training at work developed as part of the production of a book on experiences in Permanent Health Education (EPS) of the Brazilian Unified Health System (SUS), in which the first two authors worked with a team of facilitators. The Eye's Sensitization Photography Workshop was conducted in three different Brazilian locations. The workshop used as its main methodological resource rudimentary photographic devices and, as the method, photographic walkings in the working territory of the professionals. The production of visual narratives also counted on experiences of sensitization of other senses beyond sight - such as the experience of silence and the use of tactile skills. The production of narratives about health work leaded to the estrangement of the everyday life in workplace, thus favouring participants' human development, and the recognition of the value of EPS strategies that consider the local reality.

Keywords : Photography; Permanent Health Education; Human development; Geography; Territoriality.
