OLIVEIRA-MENEGOTTO, Lisiane Machado de; MENEZES, Clarissa Corrêa; CARON, Nara Amália  and  LOPES, Rita de Cássia Sobreira. The Bick method of infant observation as a research method. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2006, vol.18, n.2, pp. 77-96. ISSN 0103-5665.

The article presents a discussion concerning the potentialities of the Bick method of infant observation as a research method. A description of the method since its creation is presented, and the possible approximations with clinical work and research are highlighted. In addition, the ethical aspects of the Bick method applied to research are discussed. The application of the Bick method to research has achieved increasing recognition due to its potential for generating new ideas and for contributing to theoretical discussions in the area of developmental psychology, and especially in psychoanalysis.

Keywords : Bick method; research method; infant observation.
