COELHO-LIMA, Fellipe; COSTA, Ana Ludmila Freire  and  YAMAMOTO, Oswaldo Hajime. The professional practice of the psychologist in the organization and work context: a review of scientific production. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.2, pp. 21-35. ISSN 1984-6657.

This paper analyzes features of the profession of psychologist in the area of Organizational and Work Psychology present in the scientific literature. Through a detailed reading, the content of texts were grouped in three axes. The results were arranged in three axes. The first one presents the role of the psychologist in the work context, the second axis brings out the major criticisms of the field, and the last assembles the requirements for improving development of the field. This scenario reveals two central movements in the area: one, the maintenance of certain issues over the years, and the other, the co-existence of two opposite ideopolitical perspectives, towards the organizations or towards the workers. The main conclusion refers to the idea that, rather than polarizing, the field needs to seek dialogue between these two positions in order to move forward on central topics.

Keywords : psychologist's professional practice; psychologist in the context of work; scientific production; Constant Comparative Method.
