   schema:description ""This book examines the government's role in caring for veterans and shows how it shaped the science and profession of psychology. The VA led the country in establishing credentials for the practice of psychology. Large-scale employment of clinical and counseling psychologists in the VA led to the emergence of psychologists as health care practitioners in this country. Psychologists had significant leadership roles in the VA's innovative, multisite cooperative research studies and pioneered health care research in such areas as psychopharmacology, gerontology, and tuberculosis. Their work was important in the shift toward a behavioral model of treatment. They also helped establish a number of trends for mental health services in the country, including group therapy, compensated work therapy, and other rehabilitation programs. Additionally, VA psychologists formed advocacy networks among themselves and with the American Psychological Association (APA) and Congress. This book continues the story of the reciprocal influence of psychology and government that was begun in Psychology and the National Institute of Mental Health: A Historical Analysis of Science, Practice, and Policy (APA, 2005). Target readers for this book include psychologists who work in health care fields or have connections with the VA, and others interested in the history of psychology and postwar American life"--Jacket.
