Their concern is not as much related to the promotion of direction and planning, for they have always occupied an important place. This is a contemporary tendency and may be verified in the recent studies on work and mental health.

Introducao a Sociologia do Trabalho. The statute or role in which are gathered the particular function fulfilled by the individual in the company, the form of his task, the qualification that is acknowledged in him, and the privileges that are given or refused to him are empirical aggregates, resulting from the social functioning of the isolated company. In this sense, he says: Codo W, Jacques MG. In this way, the work organization, mediating the system of relationships between social actors, possesses a centrality in the determination of the causal conditions and manifestations of burnout, reaching its psychological dimension.

Through this view, the notion of suffering preliminarily implies a state of struggle of the participant against forces that are inclined toward mental illness, and those forces should be identified in the work organization [ 8 ]. The notions of mental suffering and pleasure associated with work, used in psychodynamics of work, are related to anguish and desire, both studied in psychoanalysis. Thus, when encountering identical work pressures, the consequences on mental functioning are not the same, for there is a private-social conflict, where it is observed that the private vigorously resists.

The specific aims were to evaluate the issues of mental health and mental illness at work, to understand the psychodynamics of work, and to analyze work and burnout.


This theme, under various circumstances, has generated research studies which focus on the inception of the varieties of burnout among workers from the various fields of production.

The theoretical construct of Seligmann-Silva enabled trahalho use of the concept of burnout associated with the sense of loss, thus expanding its conception. Dejours [ 5 ] proposed a new appreciation of the concept of work-related mental load, which cannot be quantified, for it is qualitative and as an experience cannot be measured, such as pleasure, satisfaction, frustration, aggressiveness.

This implies that we have a previously constituted subjectivity that will be later exposed to the reality of work, which may occasion a transformation in our conducts when we are facing a conflict, or a transformation in the work reality may also occur through a supplementation of our subjectivities [ 1 ]. Dejours C, DejoAbdoucheli E. Then, as a form of mediation, for all this is a dynamic process, individuals create forms to protect themselves, developing defensive strategies.

Burnout at Work in Modern Times

According to these authors, the work organization is the division of tasks among the team, the imposed rhythms, the operational modes demanded to traba,ho the labor activities, and the division between its participants to guarantee the sharing of tasks and responsibilities, which is represented by the managers, through the control systems they exercise. In the development of psychodynamics of work, Dejours trabalh 7 ] also applies the concepts formulated by Pierre Marty that investigate psychosomatic economy, also anchored on the psychoanalytical reference.

Pressures within this articulation are derived from the work organization. For Ramazzini [ 3 ], other subjects study human work directly or indirectly not assuming health to be their formal object, as is the case with political economy.


Pathogenic suffering occurs when the work organization is in conflict with the psychological functioning of men and all the possibilities of adaptation between the work organization and desire collapse. In this situation, the psychological load is negative, it is part of the pleasure at work and it counterbalances, in part, physical and nervous loads, to the point that it assures these workers a balance.

Its field of investigation explores the participants who, despite the work pressures, are able to avoid illness and madness. In this sense, Marx [ 17 ] underscores that the work becomes something external to the worker, not belonging to his nature and not constituting the satisfaction of a need: The first analysis of suffering designates the field that separates illness from health.

Work, with its social nature, absorbs workers from the social environment, registering itself in the collective domain. The specific objectives are to evaluate the issue of health and mental illness in the workplace, to understand the field of psychodynamics of work, and to analyze the work and the mental strain.

According to Seligmann-Silva [ 1 ], this evolving feature of research, that is, work and mental health, is primarily based on interdisciplinarity and attempts to integrate distinct views of the biological, human, and exact sciences. In these factors, there is a fundamental articulation between the work process, the form of administrating this process, and mental health.

In those studies, psychoanalytical concepts have served as a support to their theoretical construct for the purpose of analyzing mental suffering associated with work and the genesis of that suffering.
