For the evaluation, we used the Evaluation Scale of Hamilton Anxiety (EHA). Our purpose was to verify the anxiety level before and after beginning each group session. We accomplished 16 sessions per week, developing relaxing techniques, art-therapy and as a referential the gestalt-therapy in short run.
