SCISLESKI, Andrea Cristina Coelho; MARASCHIN, Cleci  e  TITTONI, Jaqueline. The social psychology and the work in communities: limits and possibilities. Interam. j. psychol. [online]. 2006, vol.40, n.1, pp. 47-54. ISSN 0034-9690.

This paper discusses implication, listening and authorship as theoretical and methodological tools of Social Psychology. The empirical data on which this discussion is based on comes from the experience of working with youths who reside in a community located on the outskirts of the city of Porto Alegre, Brazil. This deliberation begins from two propositions according to which the modes of inhabiting and dislocating in the city’s territory has subjective repercussions and that it is possible to constitute a strategy for intervention established on collective actions of circulation and reflection on those dislocations. When collective actions of circulation and reflection operate spaces and exercises of authorship, we observe as much a subjective reconfiguration of the subjects as much as of the professionals themselves. Reaching the conclusion that the strategies that seek to amplify the city’s territories of circulation are necessary not only for the inhabitants of the outskirts, but also for Social Psychologists.
