FREIRES, Leogildo Alves; GUERRA, Valeschka Martins  and  NASCIMENTO, Andrea dos Santos. Challenges and Propositions for Psychological Assessment with Minority Groups: Sociopolitical (mis)alignments. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2022, vol.21, n.4, pp. 383-396. ISSN 1677-0471.

This work aims to discuss challenges and propositions related to psychological assessment and research with minority groups in Brazil. For this, the content of the Participants section of all articles published in the Revista Avaliação Psicológica between 2011 and 2021 generated a corpus for analysis using the IRaMuTeQ software. Results of the Descending Hierarchical Classification indicated the existence of four classes, which emphasized information on gender and age (Class 1), regional and educational data (Class 2), intersectional data (Class 3) and nosological information (Class 4). Studies that presented more detailed sociodemographic data are discussed. The conclusion highlights the need to expand the information disclosed to make social minority groups visible. Accordingly, proposals are presented that aim to contribute to the visibility of these groups, in accordance with the current legislation of the Conselho Federal de Psicologia. Relevant information for the construction of intersectional knowledge in the area is also presented.

Keywords : psychological assessment; minority groups; quantitative research.
