OLIVEIRA, Maria Waldenez de. Research and professional work as social spaces and humanization and creative communion processes. Cad. CEDES [online]. 2009, vol.29, n.79, pp.309-321. ISSN 0101-3262. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-32622009000300002.
This paper presents some results derived from practices of research and professional work with popular communities. Understanding that such social practices may generate humanizing processes, it proposes that they constitute spaces were intersubjectivities are built and world in communion are designed in a contribution-participation within work communities committed to build a fairer society. Coexistence is introduced as vital in this dialogical process; to guarantee it, it is crucial to foresee it methodologically. Conclusions show that, when grounded in dialogue and mutual commitment between professional workers and communities, communion and coexistence allow to seize different world views, widen the understanding of oneself and the world and present transforming proposals closer to the concrete life of people.
