MARCAL, Hanna Izabel Ferreira; SCHLINDWEIN, Vanderléia de Lurdes Dal Castel; BARBOSA, Edcarlos Alfaia Galeno  e  SILVA, Mariana Oliveira da. Experiences of pleasure-suffering in the work organization of military police officers in the Northern Region. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2020, vol.23, n.2, pp. 203-217. ISSN 1516-3717.

This study analyzed the experiences of pleasure-suffering of a Military Police Battalion from the Northern Region and how they influence the execution of their activities. The theoretical-methodological assumptions adopted were the Psychodynamics of Work. Six group meetings were held with the participation of seventeen policemen: fourteen men and three women. The investigated thematics were divided into five axes, namely: precarious working conditions; profiles of the police officers; acknowledgment among peers, superiors and society; pleasure-suffering at work; and defenses against suffering, according to thematic analysis. This project was approved by the university's Research Ethics Committee. The work organization played an important role in the pleasure-suffering experiences, and cooperation, recognition, precariousness, bureaucracy and paradoxes of the police activity directly interfere in this dynamic. The use of defensive mechanisms such as irony and humor is responsible for the dichotomy between having to endure reality at work and as a means to not verbalize suffering, showing some of the important paradigms present in the military activity studied.
