CARVALHO, Andressa Veras de  and  MACEDO, João Paulo. Traditional peoples and communities: a systematic review about knowledge production in Psychology. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2018, vol.20, n.3, pp. 198-215. ISSN 1516-3687.

This work is a systematic review of published articles in Psychology about traditional peoples and communities. We searched the database of the Virtual Health Library - Psychology in national periodical publications, which resulted in 444 articles. After inclusion/exclusion criteria, focusing on studies related to Psychology, ten articles remained. Most of them have empirical nature, using different designs, such as ethnography, action research, and documentary analysis, and interviewing as the main instrument for data collection. There has been a plurality of themes investigated, though in summary we could recognize situations involving territories expropriation due to development projects and environmental legislation, causing many impacts on communities' way of life. The small number of studies reveals the shortcomings in knowledge production in Psychology about traditional communities, representing a great challenge for the area.

Keywords : traditional peoples and communities; preservation and conservation areas; psychology; knowledge production; systematic review.
