APS Student Caucus Symposium
The Science of Clinical Psychology in the 21st Century: Where Do We Go From Here?
Friday, May 27, 2011,
1:00 PM - 2:50 PM
Recent scientific advances have altered the way we understand and treat psychopathology, leading to the reemergence of clinical psychology as a scientific discipline dedicated to empirically-supported assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. To an increasing degree, psychologists have become integrated with the modern healthcare field, as the contribution of psychology to the multidisciplinary treatment of mental and physical illness has garnered greater recognition. This panel will bring together a diverse group of scientists on the cutting edge of scientific clinical psychology. Panelists will take questions from the audience and discuss their visions for the future of our field. Their experience and insight will be brought to bear as we ask the question, "Where do we go from here?"
