Keywords:teacher-student interaction, historical-cultural psychology, Medicalization
As a result of the Project "Medicalization in Goiás: critical investigations in the history and contemporaneity of biopsychosocial practices and discourses", this paper reports a research on the drama of teacher’s psychiatrization in the teacher-student relationship in the municipal educational system of Goiania, Brazil. The sickness absenteeism of teachers from elementary education for medical reasons coded with the F index of the ICD-10 envisages a context of precariousness of work in capitalism, with impacts on the social relationship between teachers and students. We discuss the characteristics pointed out in this interaction that reveal the dialectical complexity of the drama of psychiatric illness and the material conditions of the work experience, performing a qualitative analysis of data collected in sheets, synthesized from medical license records made available by the Municipal Medical Board. Our reference was Cultural-Historical Psychology as interpreted by Yves Clot's Clinic of Activity. We considered 35 sheets that refer to the teacher-student relationship during the process of teacher’s psychiatrization. Thereon, we divided categories between complaints and its developments, which reveal a common process in the suffering of these teachers. The results note that the occupational psychopathologies is related to the precariousness and expropriation of the real of the activity from the workers. We conclude our research with emphasis on the intervention of the collective as a resource to face psychiatrization, as well as subsidizing public policies that aim to face the precariousness of work as a socially constituted process at the heart of a dialectical historical-social context.
