NOGUEIRA, Cássio Streb  and  PAULON, Simone Mainieri. Madness questions management: what to learn with the ungovernable in the age of immaterial labor. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2019, vol.22, n.2, pp. 131-142. ISSN 1516-3717.

This article discusses the relation between madness and management, questioning what the so-called "ungovernable" would have to bestow upon the "reasonable" forms of management that are present in the field of public mental health policies. Based on an experience of assessing the health care system in a municipality in the interior of the state of Rio Grande do Sul conducted with users of a Psychosocial Care Center, the article problematizes the relation between good health and madness (understood as schizo power), the transformations of labor made immaterial, as well as the expansion of the concept of work management in mental health care. The conclusion is that madness can be a powerful intercessor for the invention of the Psychiatric Reform clinics.

Keywords : public policy; psychiatric reform; management; immaterial labor; research-intervention.
