RODRIGUES, Breno Ayres Chaves; GALINDO, Amanda Giron; IMBRIZI, Jaquelina Maria  and  MENDES, Rosilda. Creative workshops for workers on leave of absence. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2016, vol.6, n.3, pp. 103-123. ISSN 2238-152X.

In connection with the deinstitutionalization movement, the provision of workshops in mental health is crossed by various tensions, among them, the norms that contrast with the singular production of biopower. In this article, creative workshops are considered as dispositifs which produce culture and engage the inventiveness of participants. By use of a cartographic method, we conduct a literature review and conceive three analyzers: “from a logic of capitalist labor to the spaces of freedom and invention of worlds”; "creative and inventive spaces of freedom and production of culture"; “problematisation of the concept of the 'therapeutic' within mental health practices”. Through these analyzers, we entertain a discussion on the importance of creative workshops and music as sites for positive affirmation for workers on leave of absence. By banking on alternative activities within occupational health services, heightened attention is given to experiences in which the exercise of creativity is a factor in health production.

Keywords : Workshops; Art and Culture; Deinstitutionalization; Mental Health; Occupational Health.
