Religion And Psychiatry

The human individual, since the immemorial times, always had the necessity of other people who proper it not to become related, thus leading searchs for the sacred one. Therefore the religion probably is the institution older and lasting human being, being almost impossible to forget it. As Feurbach (1973) the religion is the first conscience of itself of the man, that is, initially the man dislocates for its exterior its proper essence before finding it in itself exactly. For it the religion and the infantile essence of the humanity. The religion can in general bring great benefits for the health and mainly for the mental health, therefore, many of the first hospitals destined to the care of people with insanities had been organized by monges and priests. The treatment that valued the paper of the religion became the type of dominant psychiatric care for diverse countries in century XIX.

This scene, however, at the beginning changed therefore of century XX the writer of psychiatry Sigmund Freud believed that the religion generated neurosis that the psychological theories would go to substitute the propiciadoras religions of world vision and source of treatment. For consequence during most of century XX the field of the cares to the mental health subestimou and disqualified the religious practical beliefs and of the patients. During the turn of century XXI, however, changes they had started to occur in the field of the mental health, inquiries being shown that nor always people who were religious could be neurotics and that people of great religious faith, dealt better with the illnesses, either they physical, or mental. The person, therefore, that she suffers from one definitive insanity needs support of its groups (the family, the work, the friends), that is, that these groups are cliente of its suffering and its difficulties and that they do not exclude it, does not acquit it, becoming more difficult the moment that live, therefore, most of the time the association of fear, terror and desperation makes with that the religiosidade becomes important for these individuals. Being thus it is of basic importance to debate and to dialogue such subject, because the religiosidade also is present in the hospital community, and if manifest in intense way in the psychiatric sector as were perceived by this researcher in an academic visit as requisite of it disciplines Religiosidade Psychology of the course of Sciences of the Religion? UEPA. This fact was the starting point to initiate the inquiry on this thematic one. We perceive that the mental patients reacted and presented fort religious content in its deliriums. Moreover, they revealed hope of cure by means of the religion, as well as its familiar ones. This inquiry has left, therefore, of a personal interest, for considering that the mental health, in many cases, if confuses with questions of the religious order, therefore intends to invest research in this area, that we consider so complex, to put of extreme importance in the life of the human being, in special the mental patients.
