SOUZA, Ana Silvia Ariza de  e  SAWAIA, Bader Burihan. Health as a Strength Action: an analysis of the collective and the Comunne of the Landless Rural Workers Movement (MST). Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.37, pp.305-320. ISSN 1519-549X.

This manuscript presents results from a participatory action research aimed to collaborate with the MST efforts to promote health for its workers. The concept of health here adopted refers to the dialectical-materialist as a totality, emphasizing its ethical-political perspective, based on Spinoza's concept concerning the force of life. The disorders occurred in Land Commune are the focus of this study. A total of 49 interviews were carried out and a field diary was elaborated. A meaningful unit was clear when analyzing these records: the correlation between health and land, followed by communitary organization and political actions. The non-regularization of land ownership leads to a continued psychosocial pain, a range of individual and collective damages that hampers the development of community bonds and the health expansion. It must be observed that most of them relegate taking care of themselves as if they were claiming for help.

Palavras-chave : Social Historical Psychology; Participatory Action Research; Ethical-Political Perspective Health; MST; Force of Life.
