ZANELLA, Andréa Vieira; LESSA, Clarissa Terres  and  DA ROS, Sílvia Zanatta. Grupal context and people in relation: contributions to reflections on social groups. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2002, vol.15, n.1, pp. 211-218. ISSN 0102-7972.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722002000100022.

Based on the historical-cultural psychology, it is considered that the person fully develops himself and is developed through a process of appropriation, always singular, of knowledge as well as of know-how of society. This process of apropriation is not abstract, but it happens through relations in diverse social groups, in which are highlighted the social places stated / assumed by people. Aware of the complexity of the group theories and its relevant contributions to psychology, as well as of our limited relation with the theme, the object of this work is to analisy, from three investigations done with different groups of educated adults on account of systematized teaching and learning activities , the dynamic of the relations among people and groups, highlighting the dialogues established among them that were mutually developed within this context.

Keywords : Groups; person constitution; social place; historical-cultural psychology; social relations.
