"Theoretical and methodological conceptions in liberation practices in Community Psychology: a Brazilian point of view" 

James Ferreira, Federal University of Ceará (UFC) Brazil

This talk intends to discuss historical, theoretical and methodological aspects of the Community Psychology that have been practiced in the state of Ceará, in the Brazilian Northeast, from the praxis started by Professor Cezar Wagner de Lima Góis and developed by the Community Psychology Nucleus (NUCOM) at the Federal University of Ceará (UFC). Many remarkable aspects of the proposed Community Psychology in Ceará are elaborated, also highlighting its academic and social perspectives. The Community Psychology is formed by five theoretical frameworks: Paulo Freire’s Popular Education, Rolando Toro’s Bio Dance, Carl Rogers’ Rogerian Approach, Vigostski’s Cultural-Historical Psychology and Martin-Baró’s Psychology of Liberation.  We also plan to socialize a way of thinking Community Psychology performance, whose reference is the people, with their needs and potentials, emphasizing them as the true subjects of psychological practice.
