GOMES, Maria Aparecida de França  and  DIMENSTEIN, Magda. Psychology university services, the health and social welfare policies. Temas psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.24, n.4, pp. 1217-1231. ISSN 1413-389X.

The current study approaches the practices developed by Psychology Universities Services (SEP - Serviços Escola de Psicologia) and used to train psychologists in health and social welfare policy. The experiment comprised 57 interns and 24 graduates from 4 SEP in Rio Grande do Norte State (RN). Participants anonymously answered a survey distributed in loco, among the interns, and virtually, among the egresses. A questionnaire was handed to curricular internship students in each SEP in 2012, and it was sent via google platform to the 2010 and 2011graduates by the Regional Council of Psychology (CRP-17). Results indicate the prevalence of the care model based on traditional clinical Psychology, although it is possible to see its slight association with health and social assistance networks. Different types of practices were detected in addition to psychotherapy and psychological assessments. However, the SEP are still isolated, either from the other courses composing the list of professional categories that operate in this scope or from health and social assistance services.
