ALENCAR, Alana Braga; XIMENES, Verônica Morais  and  MOURA JR., James Ferreira. The teaching of ethics in Community Psychology in the Northeast of Brazil: reflections and notes from the paradigm of liberation. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2019, vol.14, n.3, pp. 1-19. ISSN 1809-8908.

The teaching of ethics in Community Psychology consists of dilemmas and challenges. The Ethic of Liberation brings a concrete perspective of choice to marginalized populations. Thus, it aims to analyze the place of ethics in the teaching of Community Psychology from the paradigm of liberation. The methodology is qualitative. This research was carried out in Higher Education Institutions of a state in the Northeast of Brazil that had optional or compulsory academic disciplines of Community Psychology. Thus, there was documentary analysis of the programs of the disciplines of Community Psychology. Then, interviews and a circle of culture were conducted with teachers and students linked to the community area. The results point out that ethics is a transversal theme in the discipline, with teaching being developed through practical aspects. Liberation ethics is understood and pointed out as an outlet for a critical role in Community Psychology, but there are no specific notes on its teaching.

Keywords : Community Psychology; Ethics; Liberation.
