[Nursing and the implementation of Integrative Community Therapy in the Family Health Strategy: an experience report].

Abstract

Integrative Community Therapy (ICT) is an instrument of care that allows us to make social networks and prevent mental suffering. This paper aimed to report an experience of implementation of ICT by nurse in the Family Health Strategy, carried out from September 2008 to April 2009, at the Alto Jerusalem community, in Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil, as part of a training course of Integrative Therapist Community. The report was divided into phases: awareness of managers and health professionals and training strategies of the groups. We conclude that, as an instrument of care, ICT meets the guiding principles of SUS, teaching us to build social support networks, enabling changes and recognizing the competences of each social actor to overcome the difficulties reported.
