photo-97.jpg WHEN WE GATHER IS TO TALK, DRAW AND TO USE CLAY TO REPRESENT CERTAIN ASPECTS OF HEMOPHILIA. THEY DID THE PLATELETS IN A VEIN, THEY DID A CLOT,
WE PLAYED WITH THE FLASH CARDS…
CHILDREN WITH THE SAME DISORDER LIKE TO BE WITH EACH OTHER .

QUANDO NOS REUNIMOS É PARA FALAR, DESENHAR, PINTAR E MEXER COM ARGILA. ELES JA REPRESENTARAM VÁRIOS ASPECTOS DA HEMOFILIA, COMO VEIA COM PLAQUETAS (bolinhas) OU UM COÁGULO OU SIMPLESMENTE JOGAR COM O BARALHO HEMOAÇÃO.

    very good the idea of emotional prophilaxis. where did you get it from? was it an insight? i’ve always wondered how these special ideas cross mind borders and como to light…

    well, it was an analogical thought… if the hemophilia center can’t offer concrete factor…what can a psychotherapist offer? I can offer what I have.
    Once I was talking to an active member of the Spanish community of hemophilia..and he was telling me , disapointed, that the young people in Spain who have access to factor prophylaxis, don’t give much importance to the EMOTIONAL part of their lives…they don’t value activities done in their center to learn, or to talk about their issues as citizens with hemophilia.
    We always have something missing, something to learn…
