OLIVEIRA, Adélia Augusta Souto de  and  GOMES, Lucélia Maria Lima da Silva. Psychology in contexts of inequality: actions under debate of student assistance. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2020, vol.20, n.49, pp. 611-626. ISSN 2175-1390.

The Student Assistance Policy aims to reduce social inequality among university students. In this context, Psychology must act in the support and promotion in mental health of the student. Thus, a qualitative systematic review of the Metassynthesis type, based on the Socio-Historical Psychology of Vygotsky, is presented. The study was conducted from May to August 2018, in the Google academic database, through the descriptors “actuation”, “psychology” and “student assistance”. The results indicate the appearance of publications from 2015, with emphasis on the critical reflection for an advance of practices centered on actions of School and Educational Psychology. Thematic categories present in the articles are: university autonomy in the context of the PNAES, activity in focus: activities developed, and an identity under construction. It is considered relevant study of interpretative syntheses in the accomplishment of internal criticism to science - theoretical, methodological and actuation approach - for its permanent innovation.
