Line of Research
Clinical practices: Foundation, Procedures and Interlocutions: This research takes into account various clinical practices and their different listening techniques, forms of attention and intervention. It aims at developing critical and interdisciplinary studies which may generate different treatment and diagnostic-clinical modalities for psychic, personality and behavioral problems. To reach this goal, we consider the setbacks and challenges of the clinical practice in the social, institutional and private settings. We aim at providing health prevention and rehabilitation services. Moreover, we seek to build and validate instruments and methods of evaluation as well as critical studies of the instruments and methods of psychological evaluation. This research seeks to question and reflect upon the role of the professional while dealing with the Brazilian population’s demand.
