The Revolution in Professional Training. A Review of Innovative Programs for the Training of Professional Psychologists.
Matulef, Norman J., Ed.; And Others
According to the authors, the scientist-professional model which has dominated training in psychology is no longer the only accepted model for professional training. Enter the era of the professional model when the major commitment will be the provision of services to people, based on the application of psychological skills and knowledge. The revolutionaries, it is stated, are an army of well-trained scientifically knowledgeable but people-oriented professional psychologists who are creating programs to provide such training. The major criticisms of traditional graduate training, suggested guidelines for new professional programs, and current attempts to solve the resulting training problems comprise the bulk of the monograph. An extensive, though not exhaustive, number of programs are described on the basis of: (1) goals and guiding philosophy; (2) planners and administrators; (3) professional responsibility; (4) research training; (5) internship and practice; (6) innovative aspects; and (7) educational hurdles.
