CARVALHO, Renato Gil Gomes. The relational dimension of the intervention of psychology services in schools. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2008, vol.21, n.1, pp.119-124. ISSN 0102-7972. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722008000100015.
The profound transformations of societies in the recent years address the necessity of adjustments and new dynamics in the educative systems and in the relationship among its agents. It is in this context that new professionals such as psychologists have been involved in the education and training process of citizens. It is expected from them to contribute to the educational system efficacy in it's mission delivery. It is expected, however, that this intervention is developed in a specific way and marked by the principles of prevention, collaboration and educative community integration. The intervention of psychologist is therefore approached in the text, in which the author identifies some dynamics of that intervention and suggests some aspects that should characterize it.
