GALVAO, Pollianna  y  MARINHO-ARAUJO, Claisy Maria. School psychology in NGOs: study on the Profile of Social Educators. Rev. Psicol. IMED [online]. 2019, vol.11, n.1, pp. 46-65. ISSN 2175-5027.

Educational non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are considered emerging spaces for acting and research in School Psychology in Brazil. The profession of social educator appears in this scenario still with a little defined profile on education directed to the popular layers. This research investigated the profile of 15 social educators, aiming to know the possibilities of mediating the school psychologist to collaborate with the development of skills of this profession. Historical-cultural psychology and the competence-based approach were the central theoretical-methodological basis of the study. Of qualitative character, the study was developed in two stages: (1) institutional mapping, through documentary analysis and observation of institutional meetings; and (2) a memorial of the educational and professional trajectory of the educators. The results revealed that the institution underwent changes in the institutional guidelines, demanding a redefinition of the educators' profile. However, the interventions made by managers for the expected skills training did not consider psychological aspects related to adult development. The information indicated a fertile context to the contribution of School Psychology in the following directions: conceptions of development about the formation of the popular classes; professional profile linked to an educator role as an agent of human development; and professional training with an emphasis on adult development.
