It congregates several projects that depart from the specificity of psychoanalytical knowledge and practice and recognize the importance of the effects of the ethics of the subject in social institutions, betting on the definitive tripod of psychoanalysis: the fundamental concepts, the clinic and the investigation, involving contemporary issues that contemplate the areas. Thus, he develops studies and researches on the practices and discourses that are exercised on the subject in the contemporaneity, aiming at an intervention that surpasses the instrumental character of the institutional practices. He meets frequently to deepen Freudo-Lacanian studies on subjectivity. It houses scholarship holders, masters and IC / PIBIC advisers, internships, orientation courses in psychology, defenses, seminars, seminars and study groups.
