Venezuela is a country that saw the flourishing of Political Psychology and Community Social Psychology, these being fields of unusual originality and development throughout the southern cone.
The first steps of psychology in Venezuela were taken in 1946, when Eugenio González and Francisco Del Olmo taught the first psychology and psychotechnics courses, respectively, at the Caracas Pedagogical Institute. A few years later, in 1950, the activities of the Institute of Psychology and Psychotechnics began at the Central University of Venezuela. Finally, in 1956, the undergraduate training in psychology began, which would be strongly consolidated in the main university centers of the country.
Introduction to Community Psychology The commemoration that we celebrate today is due to the fact that on November 22, 1961, the First Meeting of Graduates of the first class of psychologists from the Central University of Venezuela (UCV) and the Andrés Bello Catholic University was held (UCAB), where the creation of the College of Psychologists of Venezuela was promoted.
Once again, we want to greet all Venezuelan psychologists on their day, and we hope it will be a fruitful and successful year.
