BASSANI, Marlise A.; SABADO, Diego  and  HAGE, Zakiee C. Mufarrej. Theatrical language, philosophical reflection and psychological group in combating violence in schools: an experience in Belém (PA). Rev. NUFEN [online]. 2017, vol.9, n.1, pp.61-76. ISSN 2175-2591.

The school is a physical and social space that we put ourselves into constant inter-relation and consists in a territory that we approppriate of, or not. The concepts of territoriality and appropriation of space, originated in the Environmental Psychology, can help in understanding possible conflicts and situations of violence that occur in the school environment. This article presents the experience report of the project "Lumiee: art for life" and the transformation of the school environment by the project leaders and the students involved. Held in a Belém of Pará school, the purpose was to use theatrical language to promote the philosophical reflection of everyday themes and to offer emotional support to students in a psychological group focused into the theme of violence. The experience of the project is described, uniting three areas of knowledge: Philosophy, Psychology and Art. The project proposal was based on the notions of Bertold Brecht's Epic Theater and Augusto Boal's Theater of the Oppressed, using his proposals along with the notions of psychological group and the instruments of reflection derived from philosophy. The positive results for students participating in the educational, social, family, spiritual and personal spheres are summarized.

Keywords : Theatrical Language; Philosophical Reflection; Psychological Group; Fighting Violence; Territoriality.
