The gap between research and clinical practice is one of the distinctive features of psychotherapy. This gap has historically been conceptualized as a problem of unidirectional dissemination. However, there are compelling reasons to consider that the disarticulation between science and practice also responds to the way in which scientific knowledge has been produced. This article describes some of the main factors that, to date, have hindered the development of an integrated science of psychotherapy and its implementation in naturalistic clinical settings. The paradigm of practice-oriented research (POR) is presented as an approach that provides specific proposals to bridge the gap between research and practice with the dual purpose of improving the quality of both research projects that are carried out and routine clinical practice.

Test Use in Spain: The psychologists’ viewpoint. Tests are the measuring instruments most used by psychologists to obtain data that help them make decisions about people. It is essential to understand the opinions of psychology professionals regarding the practical implementation of tests, in order to propose and organize actions aimed at improving their use. The objective of this research is to understand in detail what Spanish psychologists think about the use of tests in our country. A 30-item questionnaire on the different aspects of testing practices was administered. The questionnaire was answered by 1,248 members of the Spanish Psychological Association, 73.7% women, with an average age of 46.31 years, and a standard deviation of 11.08. The results show favorable attitudes of Spanish psychologists to the use of tests in the exercise of their profession, although some aspects that need to be improved are presented. Results are discussed, and some ideas about the future of tests are analyzed.

This work reflects on the role of psychology in the face of a deteriorating environment, showing a symbiosis between two psychological disciplines, environmental psychology and social intervention psychology. The text highlights the alarming environmental situation in which planet Earth finds itself due to human behavior, and the implications this has for its inhabitants. The need to approach climate change from a multidisciplinary perspective is recognized, although in this case the aim is to highlight the role of psychology in helping citizens carry out actions that are ecologically appropriate to avoid climate change. Likewise, a brief presentation of the texts of this monographic issue is made, focusing on some of the questions that can be considered central to seeking behaviors that attenuate the deterioration of the environment.
