Convergence: Connecting Levels of Analysis in Psychological Science
 In the past, our field harbored distinct, and often competing, schools of thought that tackled different problems and produced findings that often appeared to diverge. Today, investigators attack shared problems at complementary levels of analysis and produce results that converge. Studies of people in a social world; mental systems of cognition and emotion; and biological mechanisms of the genome and the nervous system interconnect and yield an integrated psychological science. The APS 23rd Annual Convention displays, and celebrates, these advances in our field.

Clinical Science Forum

Redefining Clinical Science Training: Progress Report on the Delaware Project

Thursday, May 24, 2012, 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Chicago Ballroom VIII

Varda  Shoham Chair: Varda Shoham
University of Arizona and the National Institute of Mental Health

To prepare students for leadership roles in an evolving healthcare system the NIH-supported Delaware Project aims to redefine clinical science training in ways that emphasize continuities from intervention generation to dissemination across stages of student development. Forum presentations review cutting edge developments relevant to coursework, practica, internship, and postdoctoral experience.

Continuing Education: 2 APA Credits

Learning Objectives

This Symposium is designed to help you:

1. Critique the current state of clinical psychology training.

2. Create a hypothetical plan for revising, or redefining one or more of curricula milestones in clinical psychology graduate programs.

3. Recognize differences between APA and PCSAS accreditation systems.

Continuing education for psychologists is sponsored by the Psychology Department at the Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center (WHASC). The Psychology Department at WHASC is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. WHASC maintains responsibility for this program and its content. Point of contact for the CE Program is Howard Garb. He can be reached at howard.garb@us.af.mil, or 210.671.4084.
