Psychic disorders, social transformations and economic crisis

In this paper we analyze the psychic discomforts associated with the economic crisis triggered from autumn 2008. This crisis is causing a deep social transformation that affects institutions and people. In addition, the progressive impoverishment of several social sectors happens in a social model based on hyperconsumption and discomfort medication. Neoliberalism, based on the thesis that markets regulate themselves, is destroying not only the social structures but is also organizing new modalities of subjectivity. With all these problems, it is necessary to implement new intervention models in health and in social services.

Keywords:
