Bus as therapy group setting metaphor: Lista de Espera, a journey inside the group

Abstract

Bus as therapy group setting metaphor: Lista de Espera, a journey inside the group. Abstract-This work aims to analyze the film “Lista de espera”, from the perspective of group dynamics working among the passengers of a bus station. The interest is placed on the foundation of the group and the conflict that is generated over time between participants; going through the basic assumptions we can see how it comes to teamwork in the performing stage. The film is a metaphor for what happens in a group psychotherapy, where differences become object of work and transformation for each participant: only to participating at the affectivity in the group became possible to change. The analysis of cohesion’s factors accompanies the course of the narrative, which in its conclusion shows us the way of the dream as a possible direction to express the desire to belong to the group.
