BASSANI, Marlise A.  and  FERNANDES, Fabiana Coelho. Environmental clinical psychology in therapeutic communities: intervention through professional trainning. Rev. NUFEN [online]. 2017, vol.9, n.1, pp. 77-88. ISSN 2175-2591.

The objective of this article was to present the intervention carried out in a therapeutic community, aiming to promote the health of the hosts, considering characteristics and concepts of Environmental Psychology. We chose the qualitative research approach, which was delineated as a case study. Seven people, five men and two women, aged between 30 and 50 years, with a diagnosis of drug addiction participated in this study. The results suggest that the four meetings of the Thematic Workshop "Developing Skills to Recycle" brought elements for the preparation of participants' personal life proposals when they leave the institution. This work articulates information with possibilities of action in the labor market, bringing a different perspective to participants regarding about the activities carried out with recyclable materials. This intervention is educational because it brings the importance of planning a proposal of life that contemplates social reintegration through working with solid waste recycling.

Keywords : Environmental Psychology; Environmental Clinical Psychology; Therapeutic community; Drug addiction hosts; Professional trainning program; Solid waste recycle.
