  • As the previous chapter has made clear, there has been a crystallization of the perceptions psychologists have of themselves and their roles in society into a model which, although it has no genuinely new features, is nevertheless quite different from previous models with respect to the implications that must be drawn from it. We train our students in our own image, hoping, perhaps, that that image contains a built-in element of flexibility and capacity for change. Any real change in this image necessitates some change in our training. This Conference wrestled with this problem in discussing the core curriculum. This chapter discusses the following subject headings: core topics; ethics; foreign languages; research training; and apprenticeship relation.
