The Role of the Researcher When Using the Socio-Anthropological Method to Understand the Phenomenon of Alcoholism  [PDF]
Elizabeth Halpern, Ligia Costa Leite
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2015.35011
Abstract: The consumption of alcoholic beverages during the Brazilian Armed Forces working hours was studied for the first time only recently, by investigating the patients of the Center for Chemical Dependency (CEDEQ) of the Brazilian Navy. This was possible mainly because one of the researchers was the chief of this clinic and one of the psychologists of the therapeutic groups. This article discussed methodological aspects related to the role of the researcher when conducting a qualitative research through a dense ethnography in CEDEQ over four years, with participant observation in two treatment groups for 24 sessions. Additionally, a multiple case and explanatory study was carried on, through individual and 13 open-ended interviews. The following findings will be discussed: 1) the social construction of truth and accuracy of the oral statements; 2) reflexivity, transparency, and familiarity of the researcher with the field; 3) impression management, standardized behavior, and resistance to perform the research. The use of the qualitative method requires the assessment of the researcher’s role. The anthropological eye helped to deal with a delicate theme that was hard to access: drinking during the military working journey. We found out that the organization had an ambivalent position: though the Brazilian Navy created this specialized clinic and allowed this research, at the same time this organization was not open to discuss inebriation on board, strictly authorizing the investigation of the patients. This was possible mainly because of the researcher’s social and hierarchical position as an officer, as the chief of the CEDEQ, and for being one of the therapists of the groups. We concluded that this position created an obstacle to apply effective measures to protect the military contingency.

Examining the Role of Brazilian Navy before Alcohol Intake in the Workplace  [PDF]
Elizabeth Espindola Halpern, Ligia Costa Leite
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2014.52016

This article presents some of the results of a qualitative research conducted at the Center for Chemical Dependency (CEDEQ) of Brazilian Navy, a specialized outpatient clinic for substance abuse, in order to investigate the role of this institution in the construction of the military patients’ alcoholism. A participant observation was carried out in two treatment groups, during 24 sessions, in 2010. In addition, individual open-ended interviews with 13 patients were carried out after each group session. According to their narratives they tend to believe that the institution both stimulates and prohibits the consumption of alcohol on board, an ambivalent position that contributes to the production of alcohol addiction in these individuals. As a result, the incorporation of standards of conduct related to alcohol consumption throughout their military career was observed, creating drinking patterns, especially drinking with colleagues of their military units, which we named alcoholic habitus.

Ciência & Saúde Coletiva , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-81232012000400029
Abstract: this article presents one of the segments of ethnographic research which was conducted over a two-year period, by means of participant observation, at the chemical dependency center of the brazilian navy. patients of 2 treatment groups were observed during 24 sessions of group therapy. among the 22 existing patients of the two groups, 13 patients were randomly selected for individual interviews. their illness and healing representations related to mental and behavioral disorders caused by drugs were examined, and also the influence of the work environment on patient involvement with drugs was investigated. results show that patients believe that they are responsible for their illness and for their alcoholic sobriety and they also believe they will never be cured. furthermore, they do not usually accept the on-going medical discourse or the alcoholics anonymous belief that they are recovering alcoholics; they build their own views about their diagnoses, prognoses, and treatments. there are cultural traits particular to the naval life that indicate that the categories analyzed are mainly social, and that certain work-related conditions lead to the emergence of alcoholism in many patients, despite the fact that drugs are commonly tackled from the administrative perspective.

Abstract: the hypothesis, or rather, street children go on the streets in search of mental health, is discussed to leite?s, winnicott?s, castel?s and foucault?s ideas. leite discusses the idea that street children are mentally healthy; winnicott foregrounds the theory of antisocial behavior; castel bases his theory on socially parentless concept; foucault discusses the idea that mental illness is a positive expression of society. this hypothesis has been verified in the assistance and research program coordinated by leite and developed by the psychiatry institute (ipub/ufrj). it investigates teenager?s subjectivity through their life narratives and tries to use them as guidelines for public policies of social assistance and mental health in brazil.
Education and professional strengthening of the community health agent - an ethnography study
Margareth S. Zanchetta,Ligia Costa Leite,Michel Perreault,Hélène Lefebvre
Online Brazilian Journal of Nursing , 2005,
Abstract: This inquiry explored the educative actions of Community health agents (CHAs) with socially disaffiliated populations in a Rio de Janeiro metropolitan area. Individual and group interviews, participant observation during visits to the shantytowns, and picture gathering apprehended the philosophical and empirical dimensions of such actions. The software ATLAS ti. 4.2 supported the coding procedures of the raw material. Abduction in communication framed findings’ analysis and interpretation. Analysis revealed their social professional identity, political awareness regarding their own organization as a professional group, plus criticisms regarding the negligence of occupational safety and the lack of governmental help. CHAs “voice” is a tool of social leadership and a main facilitator to empower the population, and to promote optimization of the health care system. Since their professional practice revealed conflicts, contradictions and paradoxes, it seems necessary a collective reflection on the needed support to sustain CHAs wishes for change and freedom to act.
