This Master's degree research is linked to the Educational Practices Research Line, Teacher Training and Inclusion of the Graduation Program in Education at the Federal University of Goiás - Regional Catalão. The main objective of the research was to investigate the educational process of students of Psychology Courses and the training processes experienced to work in the area of Education. In this sense, the theoretical foundation problematized the interfaces between Psychology and Education. The Historical and Dialectical Materialism was adopted as a theoretical-methodological assumption for the research. The research participants were students from three Higher Education Institutions in the State of Goiás, who were attending the last year - 9th and/or 10th periods - of Psychology Courses. In all, 8 semi-structured interviews were conducted, and 68 questionnaires were applied. For the analysis construction of the questionnaire data, we used the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) and we used the interviews in the form of excerpts to be analyzed. As a result, it was evidenced that the discussions between the fields of Education and Psychology are still present today, pointing to the difficulty of understanding that both are areas that complement each other and that could dialogue more closely. In addition to the evident field of contradictions that affect the work of the Psychology professional in the school environment, it is proposed that, in the initial training courses in Psychology Courses, it is possible to work on essential issues, such as curriculum revision, the positioning of teachers and the elaboration and development of projects and research that are socially engaged. We sought to highlight the indispensability of commitment and sensitivity in the face of the fields in which we propose to work, as well as to foster a political and critical environment that values the development of practices that emerge from a given social context and from its problems and boundaries.
