 and  ARAUJO, Claisy Maria Marinho. NGOs in Brazil: historical contextualization of the scenario for acting in educational psychology. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2018, vol.24, n.1, pp. 101-123. ISSN 1677-1168.

This article provides a historical overview of the development of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in Brazil. Currently, these areas have been expanding in the Third Sector as a new social actor to meet public demands. The study starts from a brief description of the educational NGOs in the country as an emerging field of work for the school psychologist. Afterwards, it deals with the historical characterization of the transformations of the country’s state policies, the impact on the exercise of democracy by civil society and the unfolding history towards the origin and consolidation of these institutions in Brazil. It presents the current situation of NGOs, signaling the political-economic features that boosted the growth in the number and types of services provided by these entities in recent times. In this section, we discuss a proposal for performance of the school psychologist as a possibility to work in educational NGOs. Finally, some reflections on the educational challenges faced by the school psychologist at this new socio-educational context with the potential for human development are highlighted.

Keywords : School Psychology; NGO; History; State policies.
