|Abstract: ||The training of Psychologists tries to promote the psychological understanding of the
human functioning, the development of evaluation, analysis and intervention competences
and, at the same time, to provide for the development of personal and interpersonal
competences, crucial for the professional praxis.
Our question is how to promote in the academic context this personal and interpersonal
development of the students in order to achieve the necessary competences they
need to the work in this area.
In this paper we will reflect on the authors’ experience of teaching two curricular
units of the 2nd Cycle level of Psychology Course and on a qualitative study designed
to deepen the understanding of how the experiential component of these courses is experienced
Our paper will report on the specificities of students versus teachers’ perceptions of
the experiential activities and the development of personal and interpersonal competences.
Furthermore links between the type of perceptions and the nature of the methods
used in each curricular unit will be discussed.
