SA, Rosane Antunes de  e  WANDERBROOCKE, Ana Claudia Nunes de Souza. Meanings of working facing the aging process for servents of a public institution of higher education. Bol. psicol [online]. 2016, vol.66, n.145, pp.145-158. ISSN 0006-5943.

This study aimed to apprehend the meanings attributed to work in view of the aging process for servants of a public institution of higher education. This is an exploratory qualitative study, in which participated 10 public servants, aged 45 to 70 years who worked in teaching or as administrative technician in Education. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews and analyzed from a social constructionist perspective. The speeches and repertoires produced about work were organized into three categories: values attributed to work, work as a space of belongness and views about retirement. Results point that work is valued due to allowing closer ties with youth and taking away from inactivity, ensuring a space to socialize, belong, organize life, preserve identity and reduce ties with the domestic space. The retirement process is permeated with doubts and anguish
