VIEIRA-SILVA, Marcos. The power of group process. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2019, vol.25, n.2, pp. 671-688. ISSN 1677-1168.

Based on a psychosocial intervention research program, this work presents questions and considerations on community and institutional groups while subjects of a research and extension of the Laboratory of Research and Psychosocial Intervention of the Federal University of São João del-Rei (UFSJ). As object of analysis they come from authors who work with the dialectic conception on human groups and the group processing, such as Ignácio Martín-Baró and Sílvia Lane, and the concepts of operating group, by Enrique Pichón-Rivière, and group workshops, by Lúcia Afonso. In the investigated/assisted groups, we find group phenomena which are producers of identity and consciousness activators, beside insisting in being groups, struggling against individualism and social isolation. Cohesion processes and collective identities are produced linked to mechanism of solidarity and affectivity. We have witnessed more egalitarian power relations, involving less submission and more disposition for the educational work, with more possibilities of collective production of knowledge.
