CASTANHO, Pablo. Paulo Freire’s notion of liberation and psychoanalytical group work. Vínculo [online]. 2016, vol.13, n.2, pp. 66-76. ISSN 1806-2490.

Coordinating groups with oppressed people in Brazil questions how we understand and operate with group psychanalytic theories. The challenges in such work demand dialog with authors who had thought about the specificities of Brazilian reality. In this article, we shall approach Paulo Freire's thought on oppression and its overcome in two of his books. Our objective is to advance in including the question of the subjective effects of oppression in how to handle it in the repertoire of the psychoanalytic group theories. In order to do so, we relate the literature with the challenges we face in our group practice. We start with Freire's view of the role our colonial past has had in nowadays structures of oppression and its subjective ramifications. We then present group vignettes on how such questions retour in transference. Next, we aim at a metapsychological characterization of liberations as a bounding modality. Along the way, we dialog with the malaise in our contemporary society. We finish formulating the hypothesis of a liberation bound in psychoanalytical group terms and discussing its potential.
