DEBERTI MARTINS, Cristina. Reading: A Right… Also in the Hospital. Inf. cult. soc. [online]. 2011, n.25, pp. 145-152. ISSN 1851-1740.
We approach the subject of reading as a complex phenomenon of construction of sense, and reconstruction of oneself, especially in situations of psychic and physical vulnerability as in the case of the hospitalized people. The role of the bibliotherapy is important as a possible tool to apply in the different health centers. The theoretical frame considered is the psychoanalysis (essentially the theory of Winnicott) and the anthropology of the reading (Michèle Petit). Experience of creation of library for patients in the Portal Amarillo is described (Centro de Información y Referencia en Drogas, Uruguay).
