RODRIGUEZ, Alicia Raquel; MOSQUERA, Sonia; RECTO, Gabby  and  BURGOS, María Eugenia. Ethics in training in Community Psychology in Uruguay: opportunities, risks and challenges.. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2019, vol.14, n.3, pp. 1-15. ISSN 1809-8908.

The paper presents the results of the study "Ethics in the Professional Training in Community Psychology" in Uruguay. For Community Psychology the ethical-political dimension is fundamental and, therefore, its presence in professional and academical training is very relevant. A descriptive exploratory study was conducted, collecting and analyzing data from the syllabus of Community Psychology and related disciplines courses, in the 2013 Curriculum of the Bachelor's Degree in Psychology (Psychology School, Universidad de la República). The following dimensions were addressed: fieldwork, ethical-political approach and teaching methodology. Among the results, the presence of ethics and politics in courses guidelines and an emphasis in ethical reflection during curricular practices stand out. In the discussion, the opportunities, risks and challenges involved in said results are exposed. It is concluded the necessity of attending to this dimension in the professional training, within the framework of the characteristics that contemporary society presents and its requirements for Community Psychology.
