AMARAL, Graziele Alves; MENDES, Ana Magnólia  and  FACAS, Emílio Peres. (Im)possibility of subjective mobilization in the clinic of work pathologies: the case of readapted teachers. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.2, pp. 1-14. ISSN 2359-0769.

This article aimed to problematize the Dejourian concept of subjective mobilization in the context of sick workers based on the fact that studies in clinical psychodynamic work focus on workers in a normal situation and do not clearly express how subjective mobilization occurs from clinical listening. The research was based on the theoretical and methodological framework of psychodynamic work. Twenty-two occupational clinic sessions were held with readapted teachers from the Federal District and the data were analyzed according to the clinical work analysis technique. Subjective mobilization, as a process of rescuing meaning and pleasure at work, could not be achieved in the clinic. This result is due to the fact that the work on re-adaptation constitutes a dead work, including in the sense of contributing to the isolation and exclusion of these professionals, leading to the collapse of social ties and the impossibility of a collective mobilization powerful enough to change the structural issues of this non-work to which they are subjected. Despite defending the impossibility of subjective mobilization in a dead work, the great contribution of the clinic work performed was to demonstrate the political power of the work clinic from new destinations that the sick teachers could give to suffering.

Keywords : subjective mobilization; professional re-adaptation; clinic work.
