FRANCA, Maristela et al. Clinic of work and training experience with workers from public schools in Brazil. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2013, vol.16, n.spe, pp. 69-89. ISSN 1516-3717.

This study discusses how the Training Program in Health, Gender and Work in Schools conceives and uses the device called Extended Community Research (ECR), in an attempt to collaborate with the synergy between the poles underpinning the ergological perspetive (DD3P), which aims to understand↔transform in a partnership - professional researchers and practical researchers (those that exercise practical work in analyses, trade unionists etc.) - through "work meetings" that combine research, intervention and training. The ECR device seeks to transform the work in school into clinical situations based on a method of alternation - course/analysis in schools/work meetings. The clinical setting establishes and develops a particular dialogic space of confrontation of knowledge and experiences, helping to circulate a fruitful community dialogue focused on analyzing the individual and the collective work. The experience developed in schools is presented as a clinical work from several series of dialogues so that they constitute speific dynamics which reveal the efforts of individuals to create tools of action to share between themselves and others.

Keywords : Clinic of work; Ergological perspetive; Extended community research; Dialogical device; Development.
