JOULE, Robert-Vicent  e  ALMEIDA, Angela Maria de Oliveira. For a pedagogy of commitment. Psic.: Teor. e Pesq. [online]. 2006, vol.22, n.1, pp.35-42. ISSN 0102-3772.

One of the main questions in the field of education is: how to get students or children to behave the way their parents or teachers wish. The aim of the present article is to try to answer this question, proposing an educative approach based on the psychology of commitment. The interests of this approach, called Pedagogy of Commitment are: (1) it increases the chances of obtaining without imposing, and, specially, (2) it favors the internalization of educative, family and citizenship values. Besides that, this pedagogy has the merit of being in line with the experimental social psychology. Some techniques which allow to raise the probability of seeing someone freely do what is expected from them are evoked: the "foot-in-the-door technique" (foot-in-the-door with explicit demand; foot-in-the-door with label); the technique of "touch" and the technique of "you are free to…". The article ends with four principles of action, susceptible to optimize the educative practices: the principle of freedom, the principle of primacy of action, the principle of naturalization and the principle of denaturalization.

Palavras-chave : commitment; pedagogy; educative practices.
