PRATI, Laíssa Eschiletti et al. Revisiting the ecological engagement: a proposal to systematization. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2008, vol.21, n.1, pp. 160-169. ISSN 0102-7972. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722008000100020.
This article describes how the four key concepts of the Bioecological Theory of Human Development (process, person, context and time) are present in the Ecological Engagement methodology. The goal is to provide some lines of action that may guide research teams to use this proposal in their projects. A brief comparison is performed between the Ecological Engagement and other methodologies, which value the concept of investigation and have distinct theoretical references. Moreover, other studies that used the Ecological Engagement are presented and discussed in order to establish some common points and to define aspects that may be considered as fundamental characteristics of this methodological proposal.
