Acting of Psychology students in their clientele can be a risk factor to mental health problems.

They, who are 5th-year Psychology undergraduate students, answered to two social skill instruments (IHS-Del Prette and QHC-Universitários) “in which the QHC-Universitários also measures mental health indicators. Results point to a decreasing of mental health indicators, an increasing of social skills and a reducing of non-skilled behaviours in the interaction with different interlocutors “what generates positive consequences and reduces negative consequences and feelings.
