This project was elaborated into two sections aiming to expand the interchange among disciplines / areas such as Psychology, Physiology, Fonoaudiology and Dentistry. As a whole the research problem is: How patients, professionals and dental students deal with aversive events involved with promotion, prevention and treatment health and how these events may be related with pain, fear, anxiety and stress responses ? The first section "Emotional responses and adverse events" aims to identify indicators of anxiety and stress in clinical health situations, especially related to skills teaching and oral health care. Results may help to clarify how environmental variables maybe related to development promotion of participants involved in health care. The second section, "Impact of information on patient professional interaction" analyzes the effectiveness of psychological strategies to adapt patient's to dental treatment conditions in order to decrease pain and fear levels and increase collaboration / participation during dental sessions. The projects included in the second module will also analyze the professional and student´s behavioral repertoire during treatment sessions. The assessment tools of pain, anxiety and stress represent the basic method of description and analysis of dentist-patient interaction. This procedure has allowed identifying the effect of variables such as pain and anxiety of patients and professionals about learning and emotional development of repertoires of coping in adverse situations. It is expected that results will allow the production of scientific knowledge about training of health professionals to manage the behavior of their patients. Projects focusing on behavior and oral health may generate relevant knowledge and technological development to treat health problems in a broad scope. (AU)
