  • In Chapter 3, the Roles of Psychologists, we have already discussed at some length what psychologists are doing, and what they may be doing in the future. There the very pressing manpower problem was discussed, and it is within the background of that chapter and the considerations set forth there that the discussion to follow must be read. In recent years psychologists of all specialties, in their professional organizations, their training centers, and in their contacts with outside agencies and with other professions, have increasingly emphasized and insisted upon the PhD as a criterion of the adequately trained psychologist. The Miami Beach Conference reaffirmed this position. Other topics covered in this chapter include: development of nondoctoral programs; bachelor's programs; responsibility for training specialists in other disciplines; the teaching of psychology; and, degrees and titles (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
