Murilo Moscheta is a licensed psychologist, therapist and Professor of Clinical Psychology at the Estate University of Maringá (Brazil). Murilo received his PhD degree in psychology from the University of São Paulo – Brazil with a fellowship from the University of New Hampshire. He is also an alumni of the International Class of the East Side Institute in New York.

For many years, he has worked in a variety of institutional contexts, mostly with groups of people concerned with health issues such as breast cancer, anorexia and bulimia, diabetes and aging. His thesis was co-advised by Sheila McNamee and was focused on the development of relational resources for inclusive healthcare work toward GLBT population in Brazil.

He is the co-founder of VIDEVERSO, a group that researches innovative ways of working for the development of GLBT communities. In this field, he is interested in the social constructionist contributions to understand identity discourses and its implications on gender and GLBT related issues.

As a researcher and professor, he is interested in studying performance, dialogue, teamwork and narrative as a method of research and intervention in psychology.

Murilo is also graphic designer and is constantly looking for ways of developing an academic work that challenges traditional divisions between the arts, science and politics.
