Abstract: This study aims to delineate the clinical and socio-demographic profile of the clients assisted by a school-clinic of Psychology of a private university in southern Brazil. We assessed the clinical records of 604 patients under individual psychological interventions between 2003 and 2007. The results showed that: a) the majority of patients were women, but among children the majority were of masculine gender; b) the main complaints were of depressive symptoms, but variations were also verified in accordance with age and gender; c) most of the patients had sought psychological care spontaneously; d) dropouts levels were similar to those of other studies in this context; e) no significant associations were found among dropout and age, gender and waiting time. The study revealed that the clinical and socio-demographic profile of clientele seen in this service is consistent with other training clinics in Rio Grande do Sul and in other states of Brazil. The results indicate the overall effectiveness of the service and of the adopted model of brief psychotherapy. Inconsistencies in patient’s records have been responsible for the methodological limitations of the study. The research enabled the adoption of several procedures to improve the quality of records and to support further studies.

After 20 sessions, positive results were obtained with easing of core beliefs and increasing repertoire of strategies to solve problems.

Abstract: Em 1979 e 1980 foi realizado um levantamento nas clinicas-escola de psicologia em Sao Paulo, verificando-se o atendimento oferecido aos clientes que procuraram essas clinicas em 1977. Foram levantados 2.826 casos verificando-se as variaveis faixa-etaria, atendimento oferecido, comparecimento e motivos de desistencia. Este trabalho apresenta os dados obtidos e os diseute a partir de uma leitura dos mesmos, pratica de trabalho junto as clinicas-escola e literatura sobre o assunto. Conclui que dificuldades ligadas as teorias e tecnicas psicologicas, identidade profissional e definicao do campo de competencia do psicologo influem sobre os 'servicos oferecidos, tornando sua eficacia questionavel. Urge, portanto, redefinir a funcao da profissao e desenvolver novas tecnicas, considerando-se as condicoes sociais nas quais a profissao se desenvolve.

This list was a consequence of several factors, as follows: greater numbers of patients than professional personnel available, individual consultations less than necessary, difficulties in schedulling and absence of many patients when contacted. After an agreement among professors about the Psichologic Selection Group a posterior preparation of professors and students was done. looking for a correct method of application of a previous selectal program. The "functional unit" was constituted by a professor and one trainee-student, and the basic protocol included an interview which dealt with the following points: the main complaint, the symptons and patient spectations in relation to the service. About 123 ( 73,65% of waiting list) patients came at first, initially as one common group, and after that at weekly separated groups. Including a rapid resolution of waiting list, this Selection Group Program has also promoted an expanded reflexion about the patients demand, so that it has become possible to create new ways to elaborate more realistic programs to patients.
