activity 2

transformation through affections: the psychiatric reform of Nise da Silveira and the self-management of the community “garaldea ecofeminista”.


Second meeting of the project "Institutional plasticity", by Beatriz Regueira. The first meeting, entitled "Fantástiques, simbóliques y encarnades. From "institutional psychotherapy" to an embodied institutional plasticity", focused on articulating spaces of reflection on Tosquelles' "institutional psychotherapy" and some phenomenological practices centered on the body based on Beatriz's thesis. After this, the second activity is composed of two talks. The first talk will focus on the affective and artistic practices of Dr. Nise da Silveira, Jungian and Spinozist psychiatrist, who generated a revolution in clinical methodologies from the 1940s by inspiring the Brazilian anti-manicomic reforms; and the second intervention will address the genealogy and methodologies of self-management and mutual support of the ecofeminist collective "Garaldea" (Chinchón, Madrid).
