Where does she work?

A registered graduate may practice in the various fields of psychology, particularly in developmental and community psychology, within the limits provided by the regulations governing the profession of psychologist (Section A of the register).

The Europsy model identifies three major professional fields, which absorb almost all of the professional outlets for psychologists:

  • clinical and health
  • education
  • work and organizations.

However, these three areas do not completely saturate the possible areas of intervention. Indeed, there are areas of work emergent in which psychologists can implement professional practices recognized as significant by the psychology community itself: e.g., emergency psychology, sports psychology, legal psychology, etc.

To engage in the practice of psychotherapist the psychologist must obtain the specialization stipulated in Article 3 of law 56/89.
