EVANGELISTA, Paulo. Existential-phenomenological group interventional psychodiagnosis as a possibility of the psychologist's clinical action. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2016, vol.22, n.2, pp. 219-224. ISSN 1809-6867.

In this article, I present existential-phenomenological interventional psychodiagnosis as a possibility of psychologist's clinical action. It is a model of psychological intervention developed and in practice at Universidade Paulista (UNIP), where I teach. This model questions psychologists' hierarchic place of power and knowledge in the traditional psychodiagnosis and invites clients to become protagonists in developing knowledge about themselves. This resource is used at UNIP for child psychodiagnosis. By doing so, the family's role is reconfigured in the process. The child is not the sole carrier of a 'psychological problem', since it is interpreted as a phenomenon in the family world. This procedure is already a psychological action since it enables clients to rescue their autonomy and freedom to care for themselves. This method comprehends interviews with the parents, family observation sessions, sessions with the children, visits to the family's house and the children's school. In the end, a report is written in language accessible to the children. Also, the report written by the psychologist is read to and discussed with the parents in order for them to position themselves as its coauthors.
