MOITINHO, Lilian Santos Lopes  e  CASTRO-SILVA, Carlos Roberto de. Psychosocial aspects of a community intervention in the suburbs of são paulo. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2013, vol.15, n.1, pp. 92-104. ISSN 1516-3687.

The social exclusion of the basic rigths of a great number of people, arisen by the increasing of the social inequality, requires strategies that may contribute to the formation of active individuals in their communities. Through an intervention of interns from the fifth year of Psychology, based on the Community Psychology discipline, in a nongovernmental organization, located in the suburbs of São Paulo, group activities with parents/grandparents were developed with the objective of promoting the exchange of experiences among the group participants and guiding them about matters related to their children and/or grandchildren's education. Through a participative methodology, institutional/community information with the parents/granparents' life historical were elaborated, resulting in an intervention that valued the subjective experiences as an instrument to find out the real meaning of the parents/granparents' role and of their empowerment as citizens, even revealing this empowerment as partners of the institution, searching for solutions collectively.
