The Department of Dynamic and Clinical Psychology, and Health Studies of the "Sapienza" University of Rome was established with D.R. of 22 / October 2001 and activated with D.R. of 11 / March 2002. It was born from the need of a certain number of teachers and researchers in the disciplinary sectors of "Dynamic Psychology" (M-PSI / 07) and "Clinical Psychology" (M-PSI / 08), formerly belonging to the two original Departments of "Psychology of Development and Socialization Processes" (n.38) and "Psychology" (n.39), to set up a new organization for research and national and international exchanges with other Universities or with non-university institutions (health, education, etc.) interested in research in these two disciplinary fields. With the activation of the Department, other professors from the sectors of General Psychology, Psychological Research Methodology, Developmental Psychology and Social Psychology were added to the professors of the two scientific sectors indicated.
