ROCON, Pablo Cardozo; SODRE, Francis  and  DUARTE, Marco José de Oliveira. Issues faced by Social Workers in the transsexualization process. Rev. katálysis [online]. 2018, vol.21, n.3, pp.523-533. ISSN 1982-0259.

This article reflects on the possibilities for social workers in the Brazilian transsexualization process based on a documentary research in resolutions and ethical-political devices produced by the Brazilian Social Work. We discuss here the social name defense, the struggle against transvestiphobia, work with the families, the social assistance networks and the construction of the health conscience, as a rich field for professional intervention in this program. The conclusion is that although there is no specific technical note to offer a reference for the social workers practice in this program, the guidelines for professional work with the transgender population provided in the National Health System (SUS) are included in the Professional Ethical-Political Project.
