GALINDO, Melissa Cordeiro Torres et al. Pleasure and Suffering in the Teaching Work at a Higher Education Institution. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.3, pp. 1-16. ISSN 1983-8220.

This study aimed to analyze the teachers' understanding about their experiences of pleasure and suffering at work. This is a case study, of a quantitative and qualitative nature, carried out in a private higher education institution of Recife/PE. The Scale of Pleasure and Suffering at Work was applied to one hundred teachers and interviews were conducted with five teachers. The quantitative data were analyzed with the aid of the IBM-SPSS and the interviews were submitted to content analysis. The results show moderate experiences of suffering at work, predominating the experiences of pleasure, which are a consequence of satisfaction in developing their activity, pride in work and freedom to use creativity; while suffering comes from emotional exhaustion and lack of recognition of the effort spent. The content of the interview revealed that the work space generates both feelings of pleasure (creativity, achievement, identification with teaching) and of suffering (insecurity, overload, dissatisfaction, frustration and injustice).
