GUIMARAES, Ludmila de Vasconcelos Machado; FARIA, Renata Caetano Vieira de; FERREIRA, Débora Teixeira Barreiros  and  PENA, Breno Ferreira. Harassment in the educational context: A possibility of perverse manifestation. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.1, pp.52-63. ISSN 2359-0769.

Considering that the education sector can be considered propitious for the emergence of insidious and systematic practices that can reach the psychic integrity of students and teachers, the present essay seeks to reflect, from a psychoanalytic perspective, on harassment moral in the educational context. For that, the perverse nature commonly known as authoritarianism, based mainly on Freudian psychoanalytic theory, and the post-Freudian concepts of Lacan and Melanie Klein and on contemporary authors such as Hirigoyen and Racamier were discussed. From this reflection, it is possible to suppose that the narcissistic perversion picture, observed in some traits of teachers, can be delineated as a form of defense of the subject facing a threatening situation. It is important to consider the individual characteristics and experiences of teachers, since no generalization is proposed here and these manifestations may also be the result of an educational culture in which authority is historically institutionalized.

Keywords : subjectivity; perversion; psychoanalysis; education; harassment.
