WANDERER, Aline  e  PEDROZA, Regina Lúcia Sucupira. Adults with disabilities in psychology: challenges for a politically conscious psychological investigation. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2013, vol.13, n.26, pp. 147-164. ISSN 1519-549X.

This paper aims to investigate how adults with disabilities are being addressed by adult development psychology. It begins with an analysis of the conceptions of human development that underlies the area and considers some of its main lines of research. It reviews literature in psychology and related disciplines in which adults with disabilities are included in research designs and analyzes the presence of cross-cutting themes such as social exclusion, poverty and violence. It is concluded by critically reflecting about the importance of an academic production aligned with the conceptions of a political psychology committed to social transformation, in which researchers recognize ideological and political assumptions that underpin their theoretical and methodological choices, aiming an ethical commitment to social change leading to the effective inclusion of people with disabilities.

Palavras-chave : Adults with disabilities; Adult development psychology; Social inclusion; Theoretical and methodological choices; Political psychology.
