RAMOS, Márcia Ziebell; TITTONI, Jaqueline  and  NARDI, Henrique Caetano. The experience of being away from work due to work related diseases lived as rupture or continuity process of ways of living. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2008, vol.11, n.2, pp. 209-221. ISSN 1516-3717.

This study problematizes the subjectification processes associated to the experience of being away from work due to work related diseases among workers from a Porto Alegre's public hospital. We will discuss the experiences of workers in the period of occupational reintegration in order to analyze the rupture or continuity processes present in these situations. We chose the concept of rupture-event as an analytical operator aiming to understand the effects of being away work from in the subjectification processes. Immediately, we notice that, in different situations, the emergence of a "worker without work" identity that reconfigures the workers' way of life and life projects.
