PRADO, Marco Aurélio Máximo  e  ARAUJO, Suzana Almeida. Policies of assistance to migrants and refugees in Brazil and psychology approaches. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.46, pp. 570-583. ISSN 2175-1390.

We have witnessed the intensification of displacements of people who have left their hometown because of threats to life, searching for refuge in other countries, facing extreme situations before the migratory process, during and after arrival in new territory. Brazil has public policies of reception and integration provided for laws and international agreements, which are explained here. This article discusses the approaches of Psychology as an area that acts directly in this field, based on bibliographical references, reflecting on ways of understanding the health conditions of immigrants and refugees and how interventions have been designed, highlighting the sociopolitical dimensions of humanitarian work. Interventions should mobilize socio-assistance support, trigger the material and symbolic resources of the individuals and groups to face the situation and build a new daily life, considering the complexity of the displacement experiences.
