Bahiana Marie Christine Laznik Award 2022

The work "Risks to the mental health of children residing in peripheries in the context of Covid-19: documentary study", authored by student Pedro Ian Andrade and teacher Isabella Queiroz, from the Psychology course at Bahiana, presented in the Poster modality, at the VII International Transdisciplinary Congress on Children and Adolescents – Novos Horizontes, was the winner of the Marie Christine Laznik Award.

The congress took place from August 3 to 6, via the Zoom platform, and brought together health professionals and researchers, public managers, historians, sociologists, psychoanalysts and other interested parties who study, work and/or produce around children and adolescents.

The poster was the result of the academic's course conclusion work, which was guided by Professor Isabella Queiroz, also from the Psychology course at Bahiana. The student's research investigated what was being published in the magazines Veja and Carta Capital and in the newspapers Estadão and Folha de São Paulo about children living in the periphery, in the context of Covid-19. "With this material, he categorized the data and observed what was said about the condition of these children living in favelas during this period. From then on, he made a discussion, based on psychoanalysis, about the risks experienced by mental health", explains the teacher.
