ROTOLI, Adriana et al. Operative groups: A strategy for nursing care in a center for psychosocial care. Index Enferm [online]. 2012, vol.21, n.4, pp.229-233. ISSN 1699-5988.

This study aimed to report the use of operative group as a strategy for nursing care in a Center for Psychosocial Care (CAPS). Five meetings were conducted with users of CAPS in a town in the Northern Region of the state of Rio Grande do Sul, in the first half of 2010. The resources used were dynamic group messaging and audio-visual materials. The operative groups constitute nursing care strategies that can assist in psychosocial rehabilitation of drug addicts and ethyl. The report aims to contribute to broader discussions about the theme, offering support for the practice of nurses in the development of actions in Mental Health as a work tool using the Operative Group.
