She even wrote:

“Pensando em vocês hoje, Brasil. I hope we see this wrong decision fixed soon. Eu amo vocês.”

The decision, made by the judge Waldemar Cláudio de Carvalho, is preliminary and partially attends the request of a popular action. This kind of treatment is prohibited since 1999 by a resolution of the Psychology Federal Council. The Council stated that it’s going to appeal.
