BERROETA TORRES, Héctor; HATIBOVIC DIAZ, Fuad  y  ASUN SALAZAR, Domingo. Community psychology: practice in Valparaiso and disciplinary vision of the nationals academics. Polis [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.31, pp.335-354. ISSN 0718-6568.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-65682012000100018.

The following essay is the result of a research that analyzes thecharacteristics of intervention practices and disciplinary development ofCommunitarian Psychology in the country. The work was based on different studiesthat suggest there is a gap between the disciplinary framework and the interventionpractices. A survey was applied on a sample of fifty-one psychologists that work incommunity intervention in the Valparaíso Province, and later, a subsample of fiveof these psychologists and eight acknowledged national academics were interviewed.Results confirm that the contents of the gap have worsened, giving priority toindividual interventions focused on the improvement of life conditions and mentalhealth of the participants. The research concludes that it is necessary to reconsider the contents and objectives of the discipline in the national context, in order toemphasize the social transformation that is inherent to it.

Palabras clave : History of communitarian psychology; Communitarian Psychology in Chile; intervention practice.
