PEIXOTO, Adriano de Lemos Alves. Junior enterprises in psychology: training, developing, and transforming. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.4, pp. 464-474. ISSN 1984-6657.

Throughout this presentation I have tried to show that the training space provided by the JEs makes political, educational, and pedagogical sense for Psychology, in general, and for the work and organizational psychology sub area, specifically. I hope I have made it clear that the nature of the resistance they face stems from a particular view of our profession and about the role of the university itself. I have also argued that the JEs are presented as an extracurricular activity that offers complementary training for students who participate in this activity, and that its benefits are not exclusive. Other types of training activities can offer similar results. However, its benefits justify its existence and operation. Finally, I have presented the main ways being used to address the issue of the relationship between JEs and universities due to its legal nature.
