SANTOS, Ludmilla Cristine et al. Psychology and profession: professional neurosis and the performance of the organizational psychologist in relation to the matter. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2010, vol.30, n.2, pp. 248-261. ISSN 1414-9893.

This article has the intent to do a bibliographical research about professional neurosis whose symptoms are understood as a symbolical expression of a psychological conflict whose development is found connected to a organizational situation or professionally determined. The diagnosis of professional neurosis is formed through the mentioned complaints, the work history and the analysis of the worker's current job. It is understood that stressful working conditions, associated with the social context of unemployment and competitiveness, contribute to mental diseases, among those the professional neurosis. Methods of treatment for professional neurosis, besides individual psychotherapy, include the integrated action of a multi-professional team, capable of leading and give support to the psychological suffering of the worker and to the social aspects of intervention in the work environment. It stands out in the research the lack of literature about the subject and also the importance of extending the discussion about those risk factors at work, the psychological determinants for the development of professional neurosis and the role of the psychologist in the context of prevention and promotion of mental health.

Palabras clave : Neurosis; Quality of work life; Industrial psychology; Mental health.
