NASCIMENTO, Marília Noronha Costa do  and  OLIVEIRA, Isabel Fernandes de. CRAS mobile team's performance in the countryside of Rio Grande do Norte. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2018, vol.23, n.2, pp. 122-132. ISSN 1413-294X.

The CRAS mobile teams were created to enable the access of families who live in areas which are difficult to access or have an extensive territory to the social services. We investigated how the performance of these mobile teams meets the demands of their territories in Rio Grande do Norte by making eight semi-structured interviews with teams that work in seven small towns. Given the lack of infrastructure and the number of rural communities scattered throughout the territory, the presence of the teams in rural areas becomes sporadic and ultimately the continuity of actions is undermined. The knowledge of the professionals about the reality of the territories is precarious, as the search for demands is asystematic. Nevertheless, some teams perform strategies and actions that seek to overcome the limits and the traditional assistencialism, working in partnership with social movements and equipments that are closer to the families.

Keywords : social policy; psychosocial interventions; rural settings; poverty areas.
