FIGUEIRA, Paula Lampé  e  CALIMAN, Luciana Vieira. Considerations on life's medicalization movements. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2014, vol.26, n.2, pp. 17-32. ISSN 0103-5665.

The idea that everyday problems are diagnosable and treatable by medicine is ancient as well as common today, when we are used to understanding and explaining the psyche and ethical conduct by knowing the materiality of the body. In the last two decades, investment in research investigating brain functioning has significantly expanded scientific knowledge of physiological and psychological interactions, which strongly support somatic culture. Thus, psychiatric diagnoses have become important tools in the explanation and intervention of schooling procedures considered "problematic". The combination of biomedical sciences and education has had an impact on intervention practices regarding the problems faced by children when they enter school. We are going to take a diachronic look at the relationship between biomedical knowledge and pedagogy that created the concept of normal/abnormal childhood.

Palavras-chave : medicalization; somatic culture; childhood; school.
