Group discussions summarized cover education at the B.A. level, more flexible undergraduate programs, programs to develop various skills to be used in a multidisciplinary approach, a delineation of the basic knowledges needed, programs for paraprofessionals, the functions of the clinical practitioner, and standards of necessary experience and degree levels.
