This paper presents a discussion on the current scenario in School Psychology in the State of Maranhão. We use, as parameter, the transformations that occurred throughout the country in the last decades. . A bibliographic study on the subject has been carried out and used for later reflections about the history and current trends regarding the training and work of school psychologists in the State of Maranhão. We concluded that Maranhão needs the contribution of school psychologists who are certain of their role and intentions so they can build their professional identity with commitment to local social transformations, which starts with the improvement of expertise in the area.
