Paper "Burnout in professionals atending victims of gender violence: a quantitative study"
by Maria José Magalhães, Ana Isabel Forte e Cristina Queirós

Ist Working Working Conditions International Congress, RICOT -15th & 16th Sept 2011

The focus of this paper is in the prevalence of burnout in professionals working with victims of gender violence. The prevalence of this phenomenon seems to be higher in caring professions (Maslach & Schaufeli, 1993; Pines & Aronson, 1981). Working with users in suffering may be a relevant source of stress and a risk factor for burnout (Freundenberger, 1974; Maslach & Jackson, 1981). In this way, in this study,  it was intended to analyse, in professionals' discourses, the perception of work impact in personal live of professionals working in shelters and service centers in Portugal. The findings pointed out that, concerning the dimensions of burnout, it is possible to understand that burnout is at high risk of installation in this group of professionals.

International Workshop "Love and Fear in Intimate Relationships" - 28th January 2011

In this workshop, it is intended to present the work in progress of the Project "Love, Fear and Power: pathways to a non violent life", concerning the evaluation of the services to care for women victims of gender and domestic violence. This evaluation is based on the perspectives of the professionals and directions of the institutions and organizations. The analysis of the discourses constitutes a way of mapping either the institutions and the discoursive practices, methodologies, philosophies and procedures in assisting the victims / survivors of gender and domestic violence, as well as the social representations of their own eficacy and results in their work, either from the staff either from the direction boards. As Berger & Luckmann (1996: 51) state language is crucial to understand the ways "common objectivations of everyday life are maintained primarily by linguistic signification. Everyday life is, above all, life with and by means of the language I share with my fellowmen[/women]". In this way disurses are crucial to understand social practices and power relations (see also Ifversen, 2003).

Research Workshop of the Project: Meeting with Consultants - 19th March 2010

This workshop aimed to meet with the consultants of the Project "Love, Fear and Power" — Dr. Carol Hagemann-White, University of Osnabrück, Cermany, and Dr. Sofia Neves, ISMAI, Portugal, in order to built the theoretical framework of the Project, namely about the intervention and support to women who experienced or experience gender and domestic violence, taking in account the diversity of their experiences. This workshop also constituted an opportunity to know the possibilities for using artistic tools, namely theatre, for emancipatory strategies, by Dr. Poliksena Kostova, University of Sofia. 
The papers and the debate allowed to reflect upon social responses to women and children across Europe (Kelly, Hagemann-White, Meysen & Römkens 2011; Schröttle et al., 2006). I also provided insights to think about the need of disciplinar transversality (Neves e Nogueira 2003), to evaluate services in Portugal and to reflect upon the procedures to elaborate life histories with women. 
Moreover, it was also debated the role of education in social transformation concerning this social problem (Magalhães, Silva e Costa, 2008; Pinto, Brasil, Magalhães & Fernandes 2002).
