MARASCHIN, Cleci; ROCHA, Marisa Lopes da  and  KASTRUP, Virginia. ICT Intervention-Research in a mental health service in Brazil. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2015, vol.5, n.3, pp. 94-118. ISSN 2238-152X.

This article discusses the use of intervention-research as a qualitative method that aims at exploring how knowledge production can be affected and transformed by intervention. It describes and examines four levels of reflexive feedback in an intervention experience based on information and communication technology (ICT) workshops in a mental health clinic for children and teens in Porto Alegre/Brazil. It is argued that an intervention can offer a rich reflexive experience that challenges the research group’s misconceptions, the participants’ reflexive notions, institutional common sense and the research direction. We posit that the methodology also enables the exploration of new capacities and emotions not only by the young participants, but by everyone involved in the process.

Keywords : Intervention-Research; Qualitative Research Methods; ICT Workshops; Mental Care.
