NASCIMENTO, Maria Lívia do; CUNHA, Fabiana Lopes da  e  VICENTE, Laila Maria Domith. The disqualification of the poor families like practice poverty criminalization. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2007, vol.7, n.14, pp. 0-0. ISSN 2175-1390.

This article tries to analyze the relation between practices of disqualification of the poor families and processes of poverty criminalization. Using the ideas of Foucault on power relations, discussions are made on the individualization and culpability of the families involved in cases of destitution of the family power. Although since the Estatuto da Criança e do Adolescente the destitution of the family power by allegation of poverty is no longer possible, still the poor continue to loose their children under the order of the State, only now under other allegations: abandon, negligence, mistreatments. That is, the family is criminalized when social relations are transformed into individual problems, since the strucural question of the neoliberal capitalism, contemporary power relations and the rights deprivation are discarded in the analysis of such ocurrencies.

Palavras-chave : Childhood; Destitution of family power; Poverty criminalization; Neoliberal capitalism; Power relations.
