VIEIRA, André Guirland. Psychological care and research: reflecting on methods from psychological and anthropological stances. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2008, vol.1, n.1, pp. 34-41. ISSN 1983-8220.

This paper discusses research in psychological practice in the context of epistemology and research methods in Human Sciences. First, we focus on a definition of the research object. Then we describe its methodology of investigation. At last, we study the application of this methodology in psychological practice. We focus the description of case studies as the main investigation method in psychological practice and as the closest to the methodology of research in Human Sciences.

Keywords : methodology; clinical psychology; epistemology; narrative.
