ALBUQUERQUE, Leonam Amitaf Ferreira Pinto de; LEAL, Noêmia Soares Barbosa  and  ALBERTO, Maria de Fátima Pereira. Attributions of Psychology Professionals in the Policy of Adoption. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.21, n.1, pp.175-195. ISSN 1808-4281.

The objective of this study is to analyze the actions attributed by the norms of the policy of adoption to Psychology Professionals of the Court of Childhood and Youth. The Statute of the Child and Adolescent, the National Adoption Law, the provision of the National Council of Justice on the Courts of Childhood and Youth and the resolution of the Federal Council of Psychology on the performance of the psychologist as an expert and technical assistant in the Judiciary were submitted to the document analysis. Data were analyzed using the Thematic Content Analysis technique. The actions attributed by the norms of the policy of adoption to Psychology Professionals contribute to substantiate judicial decisions, evaluate applicants, assist during the process, comfort and listen to their anxieties. They also collaborate to provide qualified and comprehensive assistance, provide psychological, legal and social support and provide permanent spaces for reflection to all involved. The vast amount of assignments and their technical nature can generate work overload for these professionals, whose academic training offered in Brazil remains linked to traditional fields.

Keywords : adoption; psychologists; juridical psychology.
