ANDRADE, Laura Freire de  and  ROMAGNOLIS, Roberta Carvalho. The Psychologist at the CRAS: a cartography of subjective territories. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2010, vol.30, n.3 ISSN 1414-9893.

This thesis conducted a study of the subjective relationships that are present among the psychologists of the CRAS of a small town in Minas Gerais and the other employees as well as the community. The goal is to identify the impoundment and the invention points that are produced in that relationship orientated by the philosophy of difference approach and by the cartographic method. Therefore semistructured interviews with staff and users of CRAS were used, as well as the participant observation and the commitment of the researcher. The power relationships, the differences and connections among the professional categories involved, the obstacles and challenges that concern psychology at this recent public unit became the subject explored during the research. The effects observed during the research show movements of intercession among the staff and the users and also movements of knowledge specificities, experienced by the professionals as well as by the assisted community. Beyond that, we concluded that both the stiffening of the vision of the nuclear family as a model for interventions and the crossings of politicians and professionals from other organizations in the daily activities of CRAS many times made the proposed work impracticable. At last, we noticed the need of psychological interventions beyond the psychologizing and the traditional model of this work.
