|Abstract:||Chronic illnesses, such as kidney disease, have received great attention from health professionals in the last decades. This work intends to present an experience with psychological care, in a hemodialysis clinic, with 26 patients aged between 15 and 80 years, the majority of which were women (69,2%), married (53,8%), did not work (92,3%), or were retired (57,7%), taking hemodialysis three times a week. Instead of reacting negatively to life events, individuals can behave in ways that improve their well-being in times of transformation and change, as is the case when one has a chronic kidney disease. The manner in which the individual deals with suffering and its benefits can bring posibilities of psychological adjustment and personal growth in face of adversity.|
