Willing to set a group health psychology faced by psychologists, some challenges require the creation of new practices considering: how the body and subjectivity articulation is shown in diseases; how the health system user becomes a historical person, embracing his determinations; how body processes are created and signified by the person at the same time they express group, social and cultural process; the debate about gender relationships and the consequences of differences and discriminations experienced by men and women in order to privilege places contemplating the exposure required to understand the complexity of health and disease for HIV and Aids-infected people, in order to gasp the adhesion process and the gender relationships crossing the treatment and the daily treatment of such people. For so, there must be a context of their social and demographic conditions; a study of the social insertion of the user(s) by analyzing and describing his life and work conditions; their family relationships (marriages and relatives) and their disease or infection history are studied; the adhesion to treatment and its vulnerabilities are evaluated and, finally, the social relationships nurtured are also built. Such thought and debate consider the assistance experience and the research in two national cities: São Paulo and Recife. The assistance project involved individual reflection appointments and group dynamics in waiting rooms developed by psychologists and psychology graduation students, supervised by a project-coordinating psychologist in charge of the clinics. This document provides guidelines and parameters for work and formation of the mental health professional, aiming to promote health and avoid diseases; which means integrated service and research; explanation of the formation and work process: theoretical and practical qualification; programmatic monitoring and monitoring of the pairs towards self-knowledgement and personal support of the professionals and students involved in the process. For theoretical and practical qualification, we used information about general health - promotion, prevention and assistance in public health and basic health care - and specific information related to STD/HIV/Aids and hepatitis - national, State and local programs of the area, STDs infection and prevention forms, HIV/Aids and Hepatitis service protocols; as well as the workshop on coordination of open groups. In the qualification to set the reflection space, we approach: integrated assistance and research; meetings as a service and qualification facilitator of the professional; the role of the Free, Informed and Clear Consent Term and how to use it; how to use a psychological dialogical meeting script. This assistance and formation alternative has qualified over 100 professionals in the last seven years.
