Performance and practices in school psychology in Brazil: systematic review in periodicals

Abstract The present article aims to analyze how the performance and practices developed by psychologist (s) in the school and educational area are performed, as well as to carry out a systematic review in the period from January 2000 to September 2017, for access databases. Six articles were included and 168 others excluded after analysis. Actions have identified in: a) Primary and secondary schools; b) Higher education; c) Non-governmental organizations, focusing on actions for the development and learning of students. The difficulties have related to the low production in the area, conditions and work processes, fragility of the area in the institutional spaces and resistance to overcoming individual practices. The possibilities were based on associative, democratic and coherent practices in the professional insertion scenario.
