NASCIMENTO, Maria Lívia do; MANZINI, Juliane Macedo  and  BOCCO, Fernanda. Reinventing the psy practices. Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2006, vol.18, n.1, pp.15-20. ISSN 1807-0310.

The purpose of this article is to criticize the legitimated role of knowledge/power played by Psychologists. In order to do so, we will start our work based on our academic practices, whether as teachers, students, trainees, extension service professionals, or supervisors, to analyze the production of a kind of professional who specializes on assigning meanings to the processes of life. We believe, based on Foucault's ideas, in the temporariness of truths and in the possibilities for creation and invention, opposing the naturalizations and dichotomizations so common on current psychological studies and practices.

Keywords : psy practices; psychology education; psychology and politics.
