    Abstract This article aims to know the discourses about the relationship between psychology and politics in Brazil, to discuss the constitution, general characteristics and current conformation of Brazilian Political Psychology. As a research method, we carried out a bibliographic review on all the published literature on Political Psychology in Brazil. It was found that its emergence resulted from the meeting and debate between two independent fields, from the articulation between the field of knowledge and its ethical-political dimension, that is, the Political Psychology instituted with a politicized Psychology, from a Marxist perspective. It concludes with a general definition that Brazilian Political Psychology is the transdisciplinary field of knowledge resulting from the articulation of a toolbox of psychosocial theories and an ethical-political project for autonomy and social change. Thus, through several theoretical references, it defends the utopia of inciting processes of empowerment and change in the instituted power relations.

    Keywords : Brazil; Political Psychology; Politicized Psychology; social change; social compromise.
