Psicologia experimental
Abstract in Portuguese
Procura aprender o significado psicologico possuido pelo animal de estimacao no cotidiano das pessoas, atraves do exame de relatos de donos e nao-donos de animais. Realiza entrevistas com adultos de ambos os sexos, dos quais 13 convivem com animais de estimacao, 6 nao possuem nem pretendem a posse e 3 pretendem adquirir um animal no futuro. Inclui, tambem, no estudo, dados oriundos de observacoes da experimentadora em sua clinica veterinaria e de relatos espontaneos ouvidos em situacoes diversas. Apos a gravacao e transcricao literal das entrevistas seleciona e analisa as modalidades e razoes de obtencao de um animal; cuidados dispensados no seu tratamento e sobrevivencia; as maneiras como se efetua a comunicacao entre o dono e seu animal; as formas de rompimento do vinculo entre dono e animal de estimacao e as funcoes que o animal exerce junto ao ser humano.Verifica que a presenca de um animal de estimacao pode trazer beneficios psico-sociais ao dono, derivados nao do animal no sentido biologico, mas de um animal imaginario e que desempenha funcoes e papel de acordo com as necessidades de cada ser. Enfatiza a importancia do conhecimento dos aspectos psicologicos do relacionamento ser hunamo-animal para o profissional psicologo e para o veterinário

A pet-animal in the house: a study to determine the psychological significance of pets
Keywords in English
Behavior analysis
Experimental psychology
Pet animal
Abstract in English
The experience related by a number of persons regarding their relationship with pet animals formed the background material from which the attempt was made to extract the psychological significance of such pets in everyday life. The underlying data were obtained from interviews with 13 adults who owned pets and 9 adult non-pet-owners, 3 of which intended to acquire a pet animal. All interwiews were tape-recorded and subsequently transcribed verbatim. Further data - when deemed necessary for completeness and back-up purposes - were obtained from veterinary medical records. After pinpointing and eliminating as irrelevancies certain fortuitious nos-recurring elements, conclusions could clearly be drawn on the following: motivation for acquiring a pet; forms of such an acquisition; routines and patterns of caring for, and ways to communicate with the animal; vicissitudes for both owner and pet; and finally, options to continue, discountinue or temporarily interrupt the relationship
