The objective of this article is to present an adaptation of Bick´s Method of observation as a technique of collecting data for a study made in a sheltering home in the state of RS. Three babies between one and two years old and their caretakers were observed, allowing the investigation of three categories: the caretaking environment, the interaction between the kids and their caretakers and, lastly the emotional impact on the observer. The article stands out the value of Bick´s Method to conduct researches. Besides, it shows the possibility of prevention in infant mental health through this resource, contributing to the psychological clinic, especially in situations of infant vulnerability.
