Rocznik: 1996 Tom: 2 Numer: 2
The article examines the issue of disunity within the discipline of psychology, within the profession of psychology, and between the two. References are made to tensions that have existed between academic-scientific model and professional psychology throughout the history of psychology. The emphasis, however, is on more recent postmodern changes and their implications for the profession of psychology in Poland in the context of planned new law regulations. The author outlines important issues that have an impact on current and future psychological education. The mutuality of science and practice is emphasized. It is argued that the processes of professionalization in a psychology in Poland demand task force to study specialty designation system. This includes identifying and specifying of the knowledge and skills required to certify minimal competence. It is also argued that ethical codes must be recognized as social constructions, the results of tensions between professionally identified behaviors and constraints imposed by the society.
