SILVA BAPTISTA, Marisa Todescan Dias da. The regulation of professional Psychology: documents that explain the historical process. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2010, vol.30, n.spe, pp.170-191. ISSN 1414-9893.

This article is a historical version that reconstructs and analyzes the process of professional regulation of the psychologist. It covers the period that begins in the late 40’s when the Brazilian professionals began to manifest on the issue, when the first courses of specialization were organized and ended in the 70’s, and when major government regulations were approved and the class councils installed. The manuscript uses as sources the documents produced during the process of establishing regulation, literature and news that refer to these documents, to their production process and critical evaluation, and to the professional movements that produced, supported and rejected them. This article also uses the statements of three professionals who participated actively in the process and it points the groups included in the Brazilian social context and in the historical context of psychology, who were responsible for the production or movement related to the proposed training and regulation, and those who criticized and opposed them.
