Dimensions of teachers' work: a proposal to approach teachers' discomfort and psychic suffering in Argentina

This report is based on studies and fieldwork carried out following the cooperation agreement between APBA and CTERA. It presents ten years of work consolidated in the research program "Salud en la escuela" (Health in schools) of the Marina Vilte Research Institute. This research program, with its multiple activities, has allowed us to work regularly in all the regions of the country with groups of teachers from all the levels of the education system. We particularly focused on the theoretical analysis of the process of teaching and on monitoring unique manifestations of psychological suffering in teachers.
