AZEVEDO, Adriano Valério dos Santos  and  PARDO, Maria Benedita Lima. Formation and operation in community social psychology. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2014, vol.8, n.2, pp. 200-210. ISSN 1982-1247.

The research aimed to identify psychology students' opinions about the academic formation for professional operation in the area of community social psychology. Thus, 114 students from the 5th year of the psychology course participated in the research. The participants answered a structured questionnaire with closed and open ended questions about the formation and operation in community social psychology. The students demonstrated satisfaction with the general and specific aspects of the formation, and the disciplines of social psychology and community psychology represented the main theoretical bases. The teaching strategies were considered satisfactory, and the contents presented in classes contribute to the professional formation, but it was highlighted that teaching institutions need to offer internships and research with the purpose of facilitating the preparation for professional operation.  The results show that the formation in community social psychology needs to prioritize the inter-relations of teaching, practice and research, by considering that these points contribute to the contextualization of the social demands.
