MOREIRA, Ana Paula Gomes  e  GUZZO, Raquel Souza Lobo. Limit situation in early childhood education: contradictions and possibilities of intervention.. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2013, vol.15, n.3, pp. 188-199. ISSN 1516-3687.

This work is placed in the framework of school psychology. Its development tried to discuss the application of the concept of limit-situation, created by Ignacio Martín-Baró, to the context of childhood education. This concept emphasizes the relationship between risk, vulnerability and protection from the dialectical materialist perspective. Through a documentary investigation based on participatory-action-research, we conducted an interpretive process culminating in the development of categories that are representative of the limit situations for the development of children. The contents of these categories indicate that the situations which constitute boundaries for children's development surpass the pedagogical issues and involve the health and welfare policies and the risk elements such as trafficking and violence. This emphasizes the emergence of the limit-situation idea as a theoretical and practical contribution to the field of school psychology.
