FERREIRA, João Batista; MENDES, Ana Magnólia; CALGARO, José Cláudio Caldas e BLANCH, Josep M.. Moral harassment of amnestied professionals at a public organization. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2006, vol.12, n.20, pp. 215-233. ISSN 1677-1168.
This study investigates the influence of the work context on moral harassment situations of professionals in public organizations. It was accomplished in partnership with the Associação Nacional de Anistiados Políticos da Empresa Brasileira de Correios e Telégrafos - ANAPECT (National Association of Political Amnestied of the Brazilian Post Office), which provided the articulation with amnestied workers taking part in the research. Work psychodynamics and the psychosocial focus were used as a theoretical basis. A collective interview was carried out with four volunteer workers linked to ANAPECT, whose verbal reports were recorded and submitted to content analysis. Results point out characteristics of the work organization related to the relation of dominance in the organizational context, allowing theidentification of moral harassment situations. Further studies are suggested to confirm the conclusions.
