GUSSO, Helder Lima et al. Industrial and Organizational Psychology in Southern Brazil: characteristics of professionals, practices, and work contexts. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.3, pp.644-652. ISSN 1984-6657.

This study describes the scope of practice of work and organizational (I/O) psychologists in the Southern Region of Brazil. A total of 300 participants who work in the three states of the Southern Region answered a questionnaire online. Results indicated that they: are mainly women (88.3%), up to 49 years old (75.3%), specialists (62.7%), registered with the Regional Council on Psychology (CRP) (90%), engage in activities to stay up-to-date (76.3%), base their work on some psychological theory (47%), do psychological evaluations (63.7%) and issue psychological reports (60%), are not contracted as psychologists (72.1%), and mainly work individually. Their main activities are predominantly related to human resources management (99%), especially training (55%), and recruitment and selection (53%). Contrary to the literature on I/O psychology, the scope of practice remains restricted to the traditional activities developed throughout the twentieth century. We conclude that it is the responsibility of professionals working in the field to expand it, since this will not emerge as spontaneous demand from organizations.
