Preparing Psychologists for the 21st Century: Proceedings of the National Conference on Graduate Education in Psychology
Leonard Bickman, Henry Carlton Ellis
L. Erlbaum, 1990 - Education - 244 pages
Sponsored by the American Psychological Association, this is a representation of the proceedings of the National Conference on Graduate Education in Psychology. The proceedings begin with general introductory material, after which ten major issues are presented and discussed, answering such questions as: How can science and practice be combined? Should there be a core or individualized curriculum? What are the implications of the institutional and organizational setting? Are programs responsible for the marketability of their graduates? Major themes cutting across many presentations and recommendations include: the perceived unity or disunity of psychology as it is taught and as it organizationally exists; the acceptance and encouragement of diversity within a unified discipline; the quality of graduate education and its students; and recognition that graduate education involves people as well as curricula. Since the issues covered are of great concern to scientists, health service providers and educators alike, this book should have a significant impact on the field.
