SOUZA, Vera Lúcia Trevisan de y VENANCIO, Magda Machado Ribeiro. The meanings attributed to social measures of assisted liberty by youngsters who are in conflict with the law and their social educators. Psicol. educ. [online]. 2011, n.32, pp. 163-185. ISSN 1414-6975.
This article results of a research which had as objective to comprehend and analyze the meanings to which youngsters under social educative measures of assisted liberty and its social educators attribute to the Social Educational Measure of Assisted Liberty. The theoretic-methodological principal which sustained this analysis was that of historic-cultural psychology, represented by Vygotski and Leontiev as well as many of their readers. Such a choice of method leads to procedures which prioritized the observation of the interactions within the context of the Measure, focusing on different moments and activities which structure it. Further interviews and examinations were held and registered in field reports. The analysis' core developed around the contradictions which emerged from the moments of interaction of the research author and the context.
