MARTINS, Soraya Rodrigues  and  MENDES, Ana Magnólia. Collective space for discussion: the clinical psychodynamic of work as an act of resistance. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2012, vol.12, n.2, pp.171-183. ISSN 1984-6657.

This study utilized the clinical method to present and discuss some theoretical methodological aspects related to group research-intervention practices in the clinic of work, based on the psychodynamics of work and on clinical records related to a group intervention process, by the SUS, with working women from various professional groups, who had, in common, experienced work-related illness. This articulation enables a type of intervention that involves research, investigation and action, involving particular modes that strengthen the action through the practice of group intervention. By means of the space of shared listening and speaking, the recognition, the cooperation, the reframing of suffering, and the freedom to act is built collectively. This allows the construction of a public space for discussion, responsible for the process of elaboration and secondary elaboration of work situations experienced, thereby contributing to create modes of worker resistance to the domination established in the process of managing the organization of work, constituting a strategy to maintain and ensure mental health at work.

Keywords : Clinical Psychodynamic of Work; Group Process; Subjective Mobilization; Works Collectives.
