HOWAT-RODRIGUES, Anna Beatriz Carnielli; NASCIMENTO, Danielly Bart do; ROSA, Edinete Maria  y  POMPEU, Júlio César. Malpractice and its actors: a study on social representations theory. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2012, vol.3, n.1, pp. 41-56. ISSN 2236-6407.

The paper aimed to understand the social representation of adult offending, important for the survey of social expectations built in everyday relationships. The subjects were 55 university law and psychology students. The instruments consisted of a questionnaire on sociodemographic characteristics of participants and a structured questionnaire for contextual activation with manipulation of economic variable through the neighborhood (rich x poor). Chi-square or Fischer test were used to examine associations between variables. In general, students indicated that the person involved in the crime were mulatto ethnicity, without work and without marital stability. The students justified the acceptance of practicing unlawful acts from socioeconomic factors and believed the arrest or the punishment prescribed by law as a way of punishment those who break the law. Social representations appeared to be based by the discourse of the dominant classes guided by a punitive and vindictive speech, vision opposed to rehabilitation and social integration widespread in both academic circles.
