GONCALVES, Valquiria Maria; KIENEN, Nádia  and  HAYDU, Verônica Bender. Scientific training and its relation with the professional training of psychologist. Temas psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.24, n.2, pp. 451-465. ISSN 1413-389X.

A literature review was conducted to identify how scientific training contributes to the professional training of psychologists. In scientific databases, fourteen papers relating to scientific training of psychologists as part of their professional training during their degree courses were selected. Based on the identification of characteristics such as their nature, aims, methods and findings, categories were formulated in order to analyze the results of the studies, namely: (a) conception of research, scientific training and participation in research activity; (b) reflection on the importance of scientific training for the professional training of psychologists; (c) characterization of professional behaviors related to the scientific training of psychologists; (d) characteristics of teaching goals present in course plans and teaching plans for scientific training as part of Psychology degree courses; (e) teaching programs to develop professional behaviors as part of the scientific training of psychologists. A noteworthy finding is students' unawareness about the possibility of participating in research activities and the relevance of the characterization of scientific and professional behaviors.

Keywords : Scientific training; psychologists' formation; professional training; Teaching Programming; literature review.
