VALENTE, Fernanda Pinheiro Rebouças  and  OLIVEIRA, Maria Cláudia Santos Lopes de. Going beyond the punishment: (re)building the responsibility socioeducacional concept. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.3, pp. 853-870. ISSN 1808-4281.

This article discusses the concept of juvenile responsibility, from the Child and Adolescent Statute, the Law no. 12594, which established the National System of Socioeducational Care and the philosophy. Normative documents mention the different forms of responsibility, seen as non-punitive alternatives in socioeducational process without presenting a clear definition of these terms. The vagueness of the concept may be contributing, in the historical process, to maintain the coercive character, distressing and punitive, often present in the execution of educational measures. To get a clearer understanding of the issue, we proceeded initially desk review of legal texts that address the socio responsibility process. In the second phase, there was qualitative and quantitative research, in which a scale Likert type instrument was applyto theprofessionals of the teen care system. The results show that the link between punishment, guilt and practices that promote socio responsibility, says more about the ideologies and representations continue to exist within the childcare system to a non-knowledge of the laws and regulations governing childcare system by professionals.

Keywords : responsibility; socioeducasional care; socioeducasional responsibility.
