Resumen

BRAVO, OMAR ALEJANDRO. Institutional Construction of the "Dangerous Madman". Univ. Psychol. [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.1, pp.263-275. ISSN 1657-9267.

Individuals who infringe laws, considered mentally ill and declared legally immune from prosecution, are in some cases secluded in specific institutions. To define the condition of immune from prosecution it is necessary to make a psychiatric verdict which may also define his pathology and his condition of danger. This way, the relation between psychiatric discourse and judiciary discourse in association with certain institutional practices leads to the individual and social deterioration of these people and this process produces an institutional chronification. This research aims to analyze the characteristics of these discourses and their institutional and social functionality. The psychiatric verdicts are of recluse individuals in the Psychiatric Treatment Area of the Colméia Prison of Brasilia and constitute the main information of which this analysis bases on.
