The profession of school psychologist is a relatively new branch within the system of educational counselling and it is still fighting for a place. In comparison with the other, already well-established psychological serservices to schools, it displays some strong points as well as the weak ones. The article draws attention to the heart of the problem -
the outlining of the powerful professional identity - which cannot be probably readied
by mere enumeration of both priorities and weak points, but more likely by the identification of prevailing „identity logic“ . The three possible types of school psychologist identity figures are suggested: intellectual "do-it-yourself man“ (in agreement with famous Lévi-Strauss’s metaphor), mediator of the relational network and school researcher.
