ALVARENGA, Tamiris; LOMBARDI, Yara  and  MACHADO, Marília Novais da Mata. Discourse analysis of a published report about a psychosocial practice on a prisional institution. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2018, vol.24, n.1, pp. 124-138. ISSN 1677-1168.

In this study, we analyzed a report published in 2009 about a psychosocial practice occurred in a penal institution. It is one of the works from a broader investigation that considers the epistemological, methodological and ethical dimensions of psychosocial practices described in Psychology journals. Our goal was to analyze the discourse of a scientific article concerning a psychosocial practice. For this, some criteria guided the selection of the analyzed text: it presents a procedure that is at the same time for research and intervention and both the method and the ethical procedures adopted were brought into light. We investigated whether the procedure which was approached in the report was able to build up relevant operating concepts, whether it apprehended the structure and the institutional functioning in its complexity, and produced psychosocial knowledge regarding the formulation of a theory and methods and devices both for action and research.

Keywords : Discourse analysis; Psychosocial practice; Methodology; Epistemology; Ethics.
