GONCALVES, Betânia Diniz; SAADALLAH, Marcia Mansur  and  QUEIROZ, Isabela Saraiva de. Coordinating networks, strengthening communities: psychosocial intervention and coordination between the university, communities and public policies. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2015, vol.10, n.1, pp. 88-100. ISSN 1809-8908.

In the project Articulando redes, fortalecendo comunidades, subsidized by FAPEMIG and the PUC Minas Extension Deanship, with the CNPq support, using participative methodologies, the aim is to develop actions that contribute to the strengthening and the organization of the community networks and governmental institutions in three communities in Belo Horizonte: Lajedo, São Gabriel and Vila Cemig. Some time ago, inthese communities, there were small initiatives of community organization, and, because of a request from the communities to the university, a partnership started and, after a few processes and adjustments, it was structured into this project. Local activities have been developed within each community, with audio-visual and multimedia strategies, in addition to psychosocial interventions. Joint actions between the three communities are also developed and, besides other benefits, they allow the building of collective knowledge between the communities and the university, the debating about similar cases existing in many of the communities, the combined search for solutions, the routing of many questions and a better use of the instruments of collective capacitation.

Keywords : Network intervention; Community participation; Collective knowledge development.
