SOLDERA, Lucas Martins  and  HASHIMOTO, Francisco. Unveiling the shame of "trecheiros" experiences in the contemporary world. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2012, vol.5, n.1, pp. 146-164. ISSN 1983-8220.

This research aimed at identifying the existence of the feeling of shame in "trecheiros" (nomads) in the contemporary world and which meanings were built in those people's lives. Such comprehension was developed based on the questioning regarding the subject, its history, and its relation with the group and with society. The survey was based on the psychosociological approach and the material was built with reports from eight "trecheiros" who use the services of the C.A.M. (Migrants' Assistance Center) of Assis, in the State of São Paulo. The data were gathered by means of semi-directed interviews, with varied lengths of time. The survey enabled the comprehension of the meanings built by the "trecheiros" from the three aspects which identify this contemporary: the registrations of the body, of the action, and of the feeling. Finally, the feeling of shame was found related to these three aspects, marking the relation of uneasiness between shame and contemporary.
