“Positions for and against the S-EPPP (Spanish version) have caused a major crisis in the profession. The lack of consensus has harmed the discipline of psychology in the country. This lack of consensus has prevented think about the true welfare of the discipline and the population that needs mental health services ”
“We recognize the importance of ensuring professional quality controls, but such controls should not be so burdensome that prevents that future professionals to serve in the profession.

This law could license nearly 400 applicants who were pending, the government’s confidence in the country’s professionals that are able to exercise our own licensing ratified, allows greater access of the population to mental health services and claims solidarity work of different professional groups joined us for the first time in a long time to make a claim in defense of the best values of psychology in Puerto Rico.”
