COSCIONII, Vinicius et al. The role of psychologists at child protection agencies. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.2, pp. 138-158. ISSN 2236-6407.

Abstract This theoretical study aims to suggest guidelines for the role of psychologists at child protection agencies (CPAs). It was motivated by the comprehension that the inclusion of psychology at CPAs currently occurs through practices that unset CPAs as autonomous bodies with its political and administrative role. Psychologists inserted at CPAs should not engage at forensic and social assistance services that are absent and precarious in the community, but instead they should perform tasks that will support the actions taken by CPAs. It is presented three possible assignments concerning these contexts: 1) training and continuing education to CPAs’ workers; 2) technical supervision to the delegation of protective measures and legal referrals; and 3) technical support to preventive, monitoring, and demanding activities. It is suggested that the implementation of multidisciplinary teams designed to assist the CPAs’ functions should be regulated at federal level.
