BARROS, Nilma Soares  and  NAIFF, Luciene Alves Miguez. Training for educators of children and teens shelter: identifying social representations. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.1, pp. 240-259. ISSN 1808-4281.

This study aimed to identify the social representations that educators shelters for children and teens do about the training. The training is an everyday phenomenon in shelters provided for in the laws of the area. However, training is a form of qualification of educators that is offered in a variety of ways and often decontextualized of the major demands coming from the praxis. In this sense, we seek the social representations theory for understanding how educators have produced the consensual knowledge about the training. We use a task of free association with the word "capacity" which raised cognemas directly related to the proposed questionnaire. We also analyse information from the field in the form of field diary. Analysing the replies with the EVOC ® 2003. Ensemble de programs permettant l' analyze des evocations) was pointed as probable core elements: learning, improvement, knowledge and study. The field diary and content analysis deepened the study suggesting positive social representations on professional training. However, also indicated that educators hope that this could function as a space professional trading and support them in everyday interventions.
