PALMA, Nedelka Solís; RODRIGUES, Valter A.  and  MORAES, Marcia. Psychologists in forma[ta]tion: cartographies of an self-analysis draft. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2012, vol.12, n.2, pp.623-647. ISSN 1808-4281.

This article aims to instill the critical exercise that takes as its starting point what was experienced or not in the academic training in psychology. The methodology is cartographic, using two concepts of Institutional Analysis: implication and analyzer. This research method allows us to reveal the established play of forces  involved in knowledge/training in psychology, at a psychology graduation course of a private institution in the state of Bahia, Brazil.  We examine the relations between neo-liberalism and formation in psychology, using the Foucauldian concept of governmentality. We point out the academic curriculum as a key piece of technical education empty of an ethical attitude and critical power. Training or formatting? We conclude that training is never just a professional production, but production of a subjectivity in which are incorporated ways of thinking, acting, feeling and perceiving the world.

Keywords : Training (formation) in Psychology; Neo-liberalism; Academic curriculum; Production of subjectivity.
