CAMARGO, Daniel Renaud et al. Psychosociology with Communities: Sentipensantes Approaches as Urgency in Latin America. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2021, vol.16, n.2, pp. 1-17. ISSN 1809-8908.

In the field of Psychosociology, it is advocated the reorientation of interventional processes, as well as psychosociological formulations in line with the demands of the current situation. Through bibliographic review, the article aims to rehearse theoretical and conceptual perspectives on the Latin American paths taken by Maritza Montero, Maria Inácia D'Ávila Neto, Ignacio Martín-Baró, Paulo Freire and Orlando Fals Borda. We envision the proposition of a framework in which Psychosociology would not be a science "of" communities, but "with" communities because it is committed to creating connections between the individual-psychological-singular-subjective with the collective-social-popular-political, in order to encompass the different influences existing in community interactions. Therefore, this work proposes to reflect on a counter-hegemonic and decolonizing logic when walking along suleadoras, sentipensantes and liberating trails. In this sense, we reinforce that a "Psychosociology with communities" must strive to strengthen the meetings and promote confluences, engendering processes of collective production of contextualized and critical knowledge about the community realities.

Keywords : Psychosociology with Communities; Latin America; Sentipensing approaches.
