Abstract

This paper presents itself as an experience report. Its objective was to provide the academic community with mechanisms that enable the habit of critical reflection on the information provided with scientific basis, in the perspective of deconstructing common sense concepts and building new ones, focusing on reducing prejudice and exclusion and encouraging respect for others. The choice of the students being all specifically from the psychology degree occurred during the supervision of the care provided at the school clinic, where difficulties were reported in dealing with the demands related to the themes addressed in the workshops. This is the experience of psychology students of all semesters, in the morning and evening shifts of a private university in the city of Manaus, Brazil, where workshops were held, divided into two themes: Alcohol and other drugs, and Sexuality, Gender and Human Rights, from October 27 to November 11. There were 10 meetings, each lasting approximately 2h30m, conducted by three professional psychologists. The instruments used during the workshops were videos and images, along with dynamics and conversation wheels to raise discussions¸ providing, through the conversation wheel, a space for interaction and exchange of experiences on each theme.
