João Paulo Amaro (**)

 

RESUMO

Hoje fala-se de Sentimento Psicológico de Comunidade (SPC) como algo que sempre esteve presente. Trata-se de um conceito que foi introduzido no corpo teórico da psicologia comunitária por Sarason (1974). Tem sido objecto de muita discussão, de algumas teorias e de numerosos estudos empíricos. SPC é compreendido intuitivamente mas difícil de definir. Supõe uma concepção de comunidade sobre a qual deve ser construído. Neste artigo apresentamos uma revisão de literatura do conceito e exploramos a sua diversidade.

Palavras-chave: Comunidade, Sentimento Psicológico de Comunidade, Psicologia Comunitária, Índice de Sentimento de Comunidade, revisão de literatura.

 

ABSTRACT

Today we speak about Psychological Sense of Community (PSOC) as something that always was present. It's a construct that was introduced in the theoretical body of Community Psychology by Sarason (1974). PSOC has been the topic of much discussion, some theories and numerous empirical studies. PSOC is intuitively understood but difficult to define. It assumes a conception of community on which it must be constructed. In this paper we present a PSOC literature review and explore its diversity.

Key words: Community, Psychological Sense of Community, Community Psychology, Sense of Community Index, literature review.
