CANIATO, Angela Maria Pires  and  LIMA, Eliane da Costa. Harassment in work organizations: perversion and pain. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2008, vol.11, n.2, pp. 177-192. ISSN 1516-3717.

The current analysis provides data collected from a bibliographical research aimed at provoking reflections that may somehow contribute towards a debate on the subjectivity consequences of work in the contemporary social and economical context. Discussion is focused on moral harassment in work organizations. Concepts are analyzed taking into consideration context and historicity as essential to obtain the above aim. The modes of capitalist production are highlighted, coupled to a presentation of moral harassment according to the approaches by Mary-France Hirigoyen and Christophe Dejours. Approximations and distancing of these two points of view are demonstrated with regard to moral harassment in the work environment.

Keywords : Work; Moral harassment; Perversion; Virile cynicism; Psychosocial pain.
