PAGLIUSO, Ligia  e  BAIRRAO, José F. Miguel H.. The ethnopsychology and institutional work in a unit under. Rev. SPAGESP [online]. 2011, vol.12, n.1, pp. 43-55. ISSN 1677-2970.

This article presents in an introductory manner some potential contributions from ethnopsychology and ethnopsychiatry to the field of forensic psychology particularly related to children and teenagers in psychosocial hazardous conditions. Its main purpose is to point out the improvement opportunities for psychological intervention in Brazilian social contexts, which are strongly marked by social characteristics of our society. Ethnopsychiatry and ethnopsychology aim to understand the forms of knowledge productions which were determined by historical, social and cultural processes, contributing for the formation of the identity of its social agents as well. Although the results presented in this work are not conclusive, it is possible to glimpse, by means of a short description of a particular case, the open space that exists between the proposals of mutual intervention towards popular initiatives of care and support for children and teenagers, and the governmental proposals, which can, in a patronizing and tendentious way, restrain, more than value, the communal and autonomous initiatives of inclusion for these children, suggested by those who are exponents in the social and cultural environment they originally come from.
