ROGER, Jean-Luc. Methodology and analysis methods in clinic of activity. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2013, vol.16, n.spe, pp. 111-120. ISSN 1516-3717.

This article focuses on the methodology of the clinic of activity. It begins by defining the notion of activity distinguishing the activity performed and the reality of activity. Structured by conflicts within and between three poles, self, others and its object, the reality of activity is not directly knowable or convertible, neither by the subject nor by any other. The assessment of the activity implies in doing so indirectly. The article shows why and how it is necessary, to reach its end, to "cause" the development. This methodology implements methods, "the self-confrontation", "instruction to the double", that allow the establishment of a new activity and by resuming the replay of conflicts of reality of activity and the solutions that are achieved. finally a case study illustrates the effects of this developmental methodology in its two sides: that of increasing the power to act and broadening the ownership of their work by the subjects concerned, that of scientific knowledge of the processes involved.

Keywords : Activity; Real of activity; Development; Crossed self-confrontation; Instruction to the double.
