AGUIAR, Silvia Gomes  and  RONZANI, Telmo Mota. Social psychology and collective health: reconstruction of identities. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2007, vol.1, n.2, pp. 11-22. ISSN 1982-1247.

The present paper consists of a bibliographic revision that presents a brief history of the health field of Psychology, more specifically public health. Questions the traditional practises of psychology in this context and presents alternative proposals of collective health psychological practises. Specially centred on public health policy, health problem prevention and health promotion, it is based on Social Psychology theoretical framework. It is concluded that Social Psychology does not summarise the total of all possibilities of intervention and understanding about the theme in question, but it presents itself as a coherent field and it is important for actions in collective heath.

Keywords : Social psychology; Collective heath; Psychological practises.
