The Brazilian Psychiatric Reform predicts family care as a central aspect for treatment of people who suffers with psychiatric disorders. Nevertheless, it is still a challenge in everyday services in Brazil. To meet this need, literature and health policy point to Permanent Healthcare Education (PHE) as a way to promote this care. This research aimed to understand how conversational process contributes to develop the PHE proposal and to promote professional formation for taking care of family members in mental health services. To do so, two educational processes were carried out, based on the PHE policy and proposal, with two groups of professionals from two public mental health services in a medium-sized municipality in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. In total, 18 professionals participated in the research. The conversations were, then, recorded, transcribed and analyzed, using the social constructionist perspective as a theoreticalepistemological guide. The analysis was performed with the following specific aims: identify critical moments in the interaction, considered as landmarks of the conversational process, which indicate the occurrence of reflections and transformation of meanings regarding the practice with family members in mental health care; analyze the use of Reflexive Records as conversational resources to promote reflections and transformation of meanings. Thus, each of the PHE-processes was named from the characteristics of its conversational process and, for each of them, critical moments were delimited. In the \"Hornet\'s nest process the group\'s conversations about the difficulties of working with family members provoked a feeling of paralysis in the facilitator which, when expressed, generated a critical moment which led the group to reflect on meeting spaces and their effects. In the \"Holding the spring\" process, conversations about different issues related to care practices with family members promoted changes in meanings related to the importance of care practices developed by professionals, to the possibility of participation of family members, to interdisciplinary practices and to the importance of the PHE process developed. With this, the centrality of the conversational process in order to PHE to occur is highlighted, supporting the thesis that facilitation based on responsiveness provides the ground for building educational contexts for working with family members in mental health services.
