MACEDO, Cibele Mariano Vaz de  and  ANDRADE, Regina Gloria Nunes. Mangueira: a community Culture and "Cartola" Cultural Center. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2015, vol.10, n.2, pp. 260-271. ISSN 1809-8908.

This paper analyzes the relationships between the processes of investigation and intervention in the community field, emphasizing two central questions: (a) if the investigation (research) should lead to actions that are also committed to reality and social change; and (b) if the community intervention process generates socially relevant knowledge. For it the paper proceeds to a reflection on the dilemmas and ethical challenges that are present in community practices: (a) related to methodological requirements and to the production of knowledge; (b) linked to "daily and historical sensibility". It asks if psychosocial intervention captures the processes of participation and awareness. It ends up with an exposure of significant aspects to the methodological and political congruence between intervention and psychosocial research in community from the perspective of Latin American Social Community Psychology.

Keywords : Research-intervention in Social Community Psychology; Ethics and community practices; Professional-community relationship.
