PALACIOS RUIZ, Antonio Javier. The profession of clinical psychology: The current issue and the challenges chead. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2004, n.91, pp.139-147. ISSN 2340-2733.

The way in which Psychology has been acquiring recognition, worth and social usefulness from its beginning as university degree, is the starting point of the problems that, after coming into effect the new law " Ley de Ordenación de Profesiones Sanitarias" and the decree 1277/003, are suffering the clinical psychologists: limited opportunities for sanitary jobs, secondary posts in the National Health Service, overcrowded universities and scanty connexion between academic and clinical scope. If we wanted to repair such deficiencies we should focus on a strategy for a middle and long-term, which develops the sanitary aspect of the Psychology in the context of the National Health Service and we should focus on improving the specialization of Clinical Psychology through specialized Training that the Government establishes for all sanitary professions.
