This paper is set to analize some of the field work material of two scholarship projects that are part of a broader investigation concerning the psychic impact produced by certain working and habitat conditions of vulnerable and marginalized groups in the city of Buenos Aires. Through the cualitative analysis of the semi structured interviews administrated to residents of the temporary settlements "villa 31 and 31 bis", NHT Zavaleta and "villa 21", three analytical categories are proposed: discriminations, violences and social memory. Each category is approached in some depth, while there is also an attempt to relate them together and with the situation of helplessness and social privation suffered by the inhabitants of the mentioned settlements. This analysis is done withing the larger framework of Social Community Psychology, with some contributions from the Critical Social Psychology and social-construccionism.
