CORREIA JUNIOR, Onair Zorzal  e  BARROS, Vanessa Andrade de. Work as Alternative Sentencing: Analysis of a Project for Court-Ordered Community Service. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.1, pp. 1-18. ISSN 1983-8220.

Based on a study done with convicts sentenced to Community Service Order (CSO) - modality of sentencing alternative to imprisonment - this paper investigates the meaning attributed by these convicts to this work, identified as a punishment. The theoretical-methodological references selected for the research were Work Psychosociology and Ergology, with the objective of accompanying a group of 9 CSO doers in activities performed at an institution in the city of Santana do Paraíso, MG, Brazil. Regarding the results of the research, it was concluded that the activity enabled the subjects to re-signify the experience of punishment and the construction of other dimensions of meaning for the work. Caveats to the defense of CSOs appeared and there was questioning of whether or not punishment could ensure no repeat offences. In this way, we suggest thinking about work activities that encourage social participation and subjective recognition.
