Surplus reality for families in the process of organ donation for transplant

  • Aline Luiza Carvalho
Keywords: Transplantion, Surplus Reality, Family, Organ donation


During the welcoming of donor families of organs and tissues, some issues related to the process are relevant and were present in the conversations such as the overall conception of death, grief, expectations before organ donation, fantasies and desires regarding the duality of loss and the continuity of other lives. Given the above, this article aims to understand the consequences of death and the interpretations of donation from a psychodramatic perspective. The process began with a reflection on the importance of welcoming donor families in such way that their choice does not cause them more pain, but contributes to developing another perspective on loss, lives and donation.
