BICALHO, Pedro Paulo Gastalho de  e  VIEIRA, Erick da Silva. Human Rights and Psychological Assessment: Inseparability of the Professional Ethical-Political Commitment. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2018, vol.38, n.spe, pp.147-158. ISSN 1414-9893.

The current article aimed to analyze the dialogical dimension of the assessment act from the mutual production perspective: what (or who) evaluates and what (or who) is evaluated and, therefore, presents reflections on the inseparability between human rights and psychological assessment, based on the critical discussion that, historically, points to the necessity of its contextualization and the understanding of this concept as a process. We find it important to affirm that the inseparability between the political and epistemological dimensions of knowledge produces different methods, objectives and practices and, therefore, points to a form of intervention that goes to a different direction from the logics of individualization, including the formulation and validation of instruments and the context of application and analysis, affirming the analysis of the demands and implications as a presupposition. As a result, the study provided the understanding that the exercise of human rights along with the process of psychological assessment should be present and effective not only in the construction of its instruments and technical requirements, but also in its manipulation and application – in other words, in the ethical-political stance of those who carry out the assessment, taking into consideration that the subjectivity of Brazilians is also (and mainly) produced by historical processes of inequality and violence, effects of four hundred years of colonization and enslavement.
