  • This Conference on Graduate Education in Psychology was organized by the Education and Training Board of the American Psychological Association, and supported by a grant from the National Institute of Mental Health. The 122 participants came from 65 colleges and universities in the United States and Canada, from 6 governmental organizations, 8 hospitals, clinics and special schools, 3 public school systems, 1 foundation and 1 accrediting agency. They also represented all specialties in psychology. They spent eight days in animated discussion in large and small groups. They considered many problems on many different levels of complexity and importance. They disagreed on some of these problems, declined to debate others, and came to consensus on solutions to some, although the proposed solutions often raised further problems. This chapter provides a brief summary of the results of these discussions. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
