CAETANO, Júlia Roberta de Oliveira Carvalho  and  TEIXEIRA, Antônio Márcio Ribeiro. Therapeutic accompaniment: considerations about an open-air clinic. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.2, pp. 1-24. ISSN 1983-8220.

The present study intends to approach Therapeutic Accompaniment (TA) and its practice from the perspective of psychoanalysis, which we question as a method for TA. We will discuss the history of madness, understanding what positions the madman occupied in society and emphasizing the role of scientific discourse in his treatment. We will see how the Psychiatric Reform enabled the freedom of treatment, as well as the emergence of TA. Considering the specificity of TA in the encounter with the contingent, we will analyze the Aristotelian concept of prudence, which is articulated with contingency, since we discuss about a moving clinic that is faced with uncontrollable variables. Prudence will tell us of a knowledge that manifests itself from contingency, so we will think of this logic at the service of a method that is built in putting into action. We conclude by emphasizing the political function of the TA, of always reinforce care in freedom.

Keywords : Therapeutic accompaniment; Psychoanalysis; Psychiatric reform; Prudence.
