VICENTIN, Maria Cristina Gonçalves; GRAMKOW, Gabriela  e  MATSUMOTO, Adriana Eiko. Pathologizing of adolescence and psycho-legal alliances: some thoughts on involuntary psychiatric hospitalization. BIS, Bol. Inst. Saúde (Impr.) [online]. 2010, vol.12, n.3, pp. 268-272. ISSN 1518-1812.

Although significant changes occurred in social policies directed at children and adolescents, processes increasing medicalization/pathological, and to obtain the care by lawsuits are identified. It is observed the resumption of involuntary hospitalization of children and adolescents and growth of referral of adolescents who have psychiatric expertise to infractions and psychological evaluations. It is noticed that some compositions produce psycho-legal discourses of care and protection of children and adolescents taking advantage of practice-oriented logic protect corrections and a perspective of social defense. The installation of a continuum and the psycho-legal idea of protection as a pretext for social control of adolescents are an arbitrary resistance to the new legal order and produce fixing practices of adolescents to spaces of exclusion, as much as social policies addressed to them are reduced.
