Abstract

The training of health professionals, in the technical-scientific learning process and other dimensions of care, may pose dangerous situations for the health of students. In the Brazilian State of Bahia, a public higher education institution receives individual requests from the population through an extension project called “Psi Space”. This article is a case report that analyzes the university extension project. Narratives were developed about the characteristics of the project and the use of therapeutic strategies, namely: welcoming practices, brief psychotherapy and dialogue circles as well as reflections on the relevance and possible paths concerning emotional support for health science students in the university. We take into account the capacity of the extension project to promote health and psychosocial skills in academic environments and in practical contexts of these future health professionals.
