Scott O. Lilienfeld is a transformative leader in the field of clinical science. A recipient of the APS James McKeen Cattell Fellow award, he has made seminal contributions in a wide range of areas, including defining the field of clinical psychological science; distinguishing science from pseudoscience; cognitive biases and critical thinking; memory, personality, and personality disorders; dissociative disorders; projective testing and its problems; cultural sensitivity and issues such as microaggressions; forensic psychology and neuroscience, among others. His work is known for its clarity, astute critical frame, fairness, and intellectual courage. Lilienfeld has grappled with many challenging topics, and he has served the field well by contributing important insights, clarifications, and arguments.
