There are many psychoanalytic researchers who have been working on the construction of instruments based on psychoanalytic theory and practice, both for use in research and for use in clinics and schools. In the present research, two instruments will be focused: the first instrument is APEGI - psychoanalytic follow-up of children in schools, groups and institutions. Constructed on the basis of psychoanalytic theory, it seeks to read from the different phenomena that are observed by the psychoanalyst, the process of subjective constitution articulated to the development of the child, emphasizing the relationship of the child with his peers. The aim of this research was to validate this instrument through the application of APEGI in a sample of 40 children between 3 and 6 years of age. The second instrument to be focused in this research is the set of CELP (children with special needs in the tie with their peers) protocols for monitoring children's relationships. The researchers of this project are expected to accompany 06 children from the CELP survey, consisting of a group of researchers from France, Italy and Brazil, who aims to study what facilitates or hinders the construction of bonds between children. The CELP survey should accompany 40 children, through questionnaires addressed to parents, teachers and children's therapists. Insofar as there is an identity between the APEGI instrument and the CELP protocols, one can ask what is the scope and the limits of each of these approaches. Thus, after the follow-up of the children with APEGI and CELP, we intend to compare the results of the six children obtained in the CELP follow-up with those obtained in the APEGI follow-up. (AU)
