SOUZA, Carolina Rodrigues Alves de  and  COELHO, Daniel Menezes. Ideals and perversities in action on Social Work Public Politics: a psychoanalytical look over values and practices. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2014, vol.46, n.2, pp.253-269. ISSN 0101-4838.

The following article was developed from a master degree term paper in Social Psychology and it intends to analyze the values that permeate the practices in action on Social Work Public Politics, specifically on a service where social-educational measures without liberty restraints are executed. Having as its public teenagers who committed crimes and their families, such politics puts in action a series of practices that mobilizes, unconsciously and subjectively, all of the actors, including social workers that execute the program. To act in sake off common well, to seek and to perform ideals of family and childhood provokes the encounter with the transgressive - or just perverse - side of it which acts in disagreement with the morality and the laws. The attempt to understand this encounter and the practices it originates is the reason why is here developed the analysis here introduced.

Keywords : public politics; social work; ideals; moral.
