FARIAS-CARRACEDO, Carolina  and  JUAREZ, Ana Rocío. What happens to these children? Answers from Psy Knowledge in Buenos Aires (1900-1940). Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2018, vol.10, n.3, pp. 57-70. ISSN 2177-093X.

The aims of this work is to know if psy knowledge impacts on the concretion of public politics and, if so, to elucidate the ways in which they do it. In this case, it is proposed to analyze the impact of psy knowledge in the solution to the childhood issues in Buenos Aires since the beginning of the XX century to 1940. The main contributions the field of psychology offers to the social issues related to childhood are stressed. After that, the psychological notions about childhood are analyzed according to the main researchers from the field of childhood psychiatry. The legislative framework prevailing during this period is considered as an element of fundamental analysis for this study. Far from considering those psy contributions like direct and linear influences in the state policies, we can conclude that they are interactions among actors, social practices and discourse objects.

Keywords : history of psychology; child-minor; psy knowledge; socio-political context.
