MIRANDA AFONSO, Maria Lucia. Notes about the subject and autonomy in psychosocial intervention. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.3, pp. 445-464. ISSN 1677-1168.

The paper reviews some theoretical approaches that aim to provide assistance for the conceptualization of autonomy of the subject within the psychosocial intervention processes. It addresses the relationship between subject, language and social discourses. It emphasizes the possibilities for the production of meaning in spite of the social determinations embroiled in ideology and unconscious. It discusses that interpretation is dialectically related to activity in the social context. It presents autonomy as a process linked to the praxis of individual and collective subjects. It resumes the social and political dimension of autonomy to be worked out in the process of psychosocial intervention. It reaffirms the main idea of psychosocial intervention: autonomy as work of interpretation and changing process of the subject and the society

Keywords : Psychosocial intervention; social subject; autonomy; discourse; práxis.
