Description

Nise da Silveira (Maceió, 15 de fevereiro de 1905 — Rio de Janeiro, 30 de outubro de 1999) foi uma médica psiquiatra brasileira. Reconhecida mundialmente por sua contribuição à psiquiatria, revolucionou o tratamento mental no Brasil. Foi aluna de Carl Jung.

Dedicou sua vida ao trabalho com doentes mentais, manifestando-se radicalmente contra as formas que julgava serem agressivas em tratamentos de sua época, tais como o confinamento em hospitais psiquiátricos, eletrochoque, insulinoterapia e lobotomia. Nise ainda foi pioneira ao enxergar o valor terapêutico da interação de pacientes com animais.
