Psychology Practice: Design for Tomorrow
Goodheart, Carol D.
American Psychologist, v66 n5 p339-347 Jul-Aug 2011
This article offers a blueprint for modernizing the delivery of high-quality behavioral health care and for improving access to care by a public sorely in need of psychological services. The blueprint brings together disparate elements of psychology practice into a more unified structure, an updated house, based upon advances in the essential building blocks: evidence-based practice, treatment guidelines, technology, classifications of function, diagnostic systems, outcomes measurement, and integrated health care. The goal is twofold: to make psychological services more accessible to the public and to position psychology for an increasingly major role in health care in order to serve the public weal in diverse communities.
