The President of the Republic receives the President of the Ordem dos Psicólogos
The President of the Ordem dos Psicólogos attended a meeting with the President of the Public. He was accompanied by Board members, Francisco Rodrigues and Constança Biscaia. He delivered greetings from the Ordem dos Psicólogos and informed him on the current situation of psychologists in Portugal, the actions the Order has planned to organise the profession and thus contribute to the development of the country. The President underlined the need to make use of more Portuguese psychologists, who are a valuable asset in resolving a wide range of national problems. The President further stated that because existing psychologists are not being widely used, there is a higher unemployment rate of these professionals. The President of the Republic reacted positively to the proposal presented by the Ordem dos Psicólogos for an annual Speech to the President to be given - specially dedicated to the President, on a theme which is nationally relevant, and to the contribution of psychological intervention and psychologists for its resolution.
