MARION, Juliana  and  PEREIRA, Caroline Rubin Rossato. Family from the point of view of CRAS psychologists. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.2, pp. 1-23. ISSN 1983-8220.

This study sought to investigate the family conceptions of psychologists at the Social Assistance Reference Centers (CRAS). For this, individual interviews were conducted with five psychologists inserted in the CRAS of a city of Rio Grande do Sul, in order to access their beliefs, values ​​and representations involving the concept of family. From the qualitative analysis of content, the results indicated that the participants considered family the persons who establish relationships based on emotional ties, not restricting their definition to consanguinity. In addition, they pointed out as indicators of family health the ability to take care for children, handle conflicts and non-violence. However, some participants presented traces of a traditional and romanticized family view. The importance of the psychologist's performance is linked to the ability to critically analyze the context of practice and the Brazilian social reality. From this, it is expected to contribute to the construction of a practice that does not reproduce social violence and stigmatization of the families served.
