New Directions for Educational Psychologists.
A variety of demographic trends and futurists' expectations are examined for implications for the development of newer roles for educational psychologists. In the future, educational psychologists may be involved in functions dealing with maintenance of health, education of older populations, instruction of personnel to care for chronically ill populations, administrative and training roles in the day-care field, and preparation of instructional materials. It should not be overlooked that curricula and training programs for educational psychologists will need to be changed to accommodate the changing role of educational psychologists. Therefore, educational psychologists have a very important role as change agents at the higher education level, at the preparation stage. (CB)
