Avaliação de famílias ribeirinhas: uma proposta adaptada ao contextoRiverside families' evaluation: a proposition adapted to the context. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol.

The objective of this paper is to present the methodological procedures for the production of the Structured Situations of Investigation (SSI), a tool for family evaluation adapted to the Amazon's riverside people's context, which used elements from the riverside people's culture in the construction of tasks presented to focal families. In addition to that, some of the data gathered with this instrument will be presented, revealing its power to generate information which makes sense within the investigated context. Currently, the researches intended to investigate the human development and the families within a context lack instruments adapted to the investigation environment. In this sense, it is essential to build tools which, based on contextual characteristics, allow the participants to reveal valid information.
