RESENDE, Gisele Cristina; SILVA, Iolete Ribeiro da  and  CALEGARE, Marcelo Gustavo Aguilar. The Postgraduate Program in Psychology of the Federal University of Amazonas: Proposal and Perspectives for the Amazon Region. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2019, vol.24, n.2, pp. 125-135. ISSN 1413-294X.

This article aims to present and discuss the Program the Postgraduate Program in Psychology of the Federal University of Amazonas (PPGPSI-UFAM) in its formative proposal and perspectives for the Amazon region facing the national postgraduate scenario. We also present its origins and current characteristics, the expected profile and research with graduates of the 10 years of PPGPSI, the national and international partnerships, the main productions of 2017-2018 and the social insertion. We reveal the difficulty of raising the scientific productions and realizing adequate fulfillment of the Sucupira Portal. And we indicate some challenges to be overcome: isolation and ignorance of the Amazon for the rest of the country, lack of financial incentives for the Northern region, disregard of the Amazon specificities for financing, adoption of new epistemologies according to regional perspective, strengthening of PPGPSI by national and international partnerships.

Keywords : postgraduated training; psychology; Amazon region.
