CASTELLANOS, SERGIO. “FRANJA T” AS A GROUP PSYCHOTHERAPEUTIC INTERVENTION IN MENTAL HEALTH INSTITUTIONS IN COLOMBIA. Univ. Psychol. [online]. 2007, vol.6, n.2, pp. 359-370. ISSN 1657-9267.
Franja T is a group intervention strategy psychoanalytically oriented and was created in the university context for Colombian mental health institutions. It is based upon the psychoanalytic theory of D. Winnicott who affirms that the flaws of the facilitating environment, that occur during the maturation processes of the baby and originate most mental disorders, can be corrected. The corrective experience is made possible for all through the transitional phenomena. It is through the relationship between the external and interior worlds of the participants that the separation with the mother, the external world and other situations that imply suffering can become tolerable and acceptable, being able to give them sense. For the results analysis of the process that went trough two and a half years this were to gather in four elements: a) no use of the space. b) transitional phenomena from the object relationship towards the use relationship. c) Object use expression according to the paradox -creation illusion and finding the object on the external reality-. d) resignificance. The research - intervention process with Franja T permits, so far, to affirm that this strategy is a transitional phenomenon and there by is therapeutic and accurate for Colombian mental health institutions.
