MORETTO, Maria Lívia Tourinho  and  PRISZKULNIK, Léia. About the insertion and the place of the psychoanalyst at the health care team. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2014, vol.46, n.2, pp.287-298. ISSN 0101-4838.

The psychoanalyst's work at the Health Institution is done by articulating the clinic with the theory. It is the psychoanalyst's responsibility the transmission of knowledge that is built there, since the psychoanalyst is interested in a theory of clinical practice, especially because that clinic occurs at the institution, and it produces consequences in both: clinic and institution. This paper presents and discusses the notion of insertion of the analyst in the health team as a process, not as a fact. We assume that to enter in a team in a health institution is not the same as to be inserted in it. We define insertion as a construction process of the place where the psychoanalyst can operate, reminding that this place is not given beforehand. It is the continued formation that allows him to support such construction, by articulating his discourse with other different discourses at the different ethical references.

Keywords : psychoanalysts; health institutions; patient care team; applied psychoanalysis; psychology.
