Rádice: past and future

Alessandra Daflon dos Santos Ana Maria Jacó-Vilela About the authors

This paper presents "Rádice" - a psychology magazine, published by psychologists from Rio de Janeiro between 1976 and 1981. This publication had a huge intellectual and emotional importance for a generation of psychology students graduated during the period of militar dictatorship in Brazil. "Rádice" offered to its readers papers on diverse and polemical themes, unusual to psychology publications of that epoch, such as political repression, nonhuman treatment in psychiatric hospitals, regulation of the psychologist profession, and corporal therapies. "Rádice" was, like other small publications, part of the Alternative Press Committee, and had an active participation on the political debates of that time. "Rádice", thus, allows us to analyze the history of psychology in Rio de Janeiro, being one of the fews devices to present other ways of doing psychology.
