This article comes from a research in psychoanalysis and education, which allied multiple case study and intervention research, carried out in the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Institute of Psychiatry, Rio de Janeiro Federal University (SPIA/ IPUB-UFRJ). It starts with an observation that the social conditions that underpin the educational bond have undergone great transformations in the last decades. Taking Freud’s thesis of the malaise inherent in civilization into account, it aims to discuss the malaise in the schooling of children and adolescents, more specifically from the discourse of the specialists who were called to attend the cases studied. It brings a reflection on the malaise in the context of the clinical appointments and in its referrals, and problematizes the hegemony of the medical discourse in the understanding and conduction of this process.
