FERRARI, Ilka Franco  and  MACHADO, Marília Novais da Mata. Profiles of imprisoned mothers living with their children. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2014, vol.9, n.2, pp. 173-183. ISSN 1809-8908.

The text covers information drawn from an extensive research that has as its subject matter the Reference Center for Pregnant Women Deprived of Freedom (CRGPL), located in Vespasiano, Minas Gerais. It is dedicated especially to the presentation of statistical data that configures a profile of the inmates of that institution, but it also brings considerations arising from observations and conversations held with inmates, tempering the numerical aridity and showing another side of the profile. Quantitative and qualitative descriptions of the inmates' profile are markedly different, suggesting that, as research practices, the two methods most dispute that harmonize in their results.

Keywords : mothers inmates; intervention research; statistical profile; conversations.
