GONZALES, Gabriela; INOCENTE, Giuliana  y  SOARES, Maria. Group intervention for women with endometriosis. Psic., Saúde & Doenças [online]. 2019, vol.20, n.2, pp.512-524. ISSN 1645-0086.

Group psychological intervention has advantages when used in the context of health. It allows a greater number of patients to be attended, promote interaction between members and provide models of appropriate behaviors. Is considered a socially reinforcing condition and similar to the out-of-session context, which facilitates the generalization of behaviors. Currently there are few publications about psychological intervention in group directed to women with endometriosis. This article describes a model of treatment group for women with such a diagnosis with a behavioral analytic approach. Ten sessions were held, based on pertinente literature, with an hour and a half of duration. The group had closed feature and was formed by six participants with homogeneous condition. The objective included developing of social skills, expression of feelings, self-knowledge, and relaxation. The data were obtained by observing the behavior of the participants and the records made by the psychotherapists. The results corroborated with the literature regarding the delay in receiving the diagnosis and the need to work with social skills, in order to reducing the frequency of behaviors related to escape and avoidance of social contexts. In the group, it was possible to observe after the intervention, women discussed more frequently about pregnancy, a subject considered aversive, which may indicate the acquisition of repertoires related to the expression of feelings and coping.
