This book is based on research carried out from different contexts based on the psychological research of individuals who are part of a society, group, or community. It is intended to contribute to the development of new forms of intervention and social research that guarantee the timely attention to social phenomena through a legal, theoretical, and scientific framework that has been around throughout history in Latin America. This work emphasizes the importance of Latin American scientific psychology in the study, acquiring of knowledge about, and understanding of the progress of human behavior regarding reality, about the different situations that happen to it in fields such as politics and education, and in improving the quality of lives of people.
