Abstract:

This revised edition of An Introduction to Clinical Psychology, providing a survey of the clinician at work, has been written for the student who wishes to examine the new field and its pressing problems, its opportunities, approaches, and responsibilities. This book can also serve broadly to orient the clinician-in-training and to provide definite information for medical specialists, social workers, and all others who work coordinately in the clinical laboratory. It can give those in cognate disciplines word pictures of the training backgrounds and the duties of the newest addition to the professional team, the clinical psychologist. Numerous changes in content and arrangement from the first edition have been effected. Ten new chapters have been added, and those chapters retained from the previous edition have been carefully revised. Part I sets forth the historical development, current problems, and professional responsibilities of the field. Part II describes the tools with which the clinician works. No effort has been made to depict every instrument known to the psychodiagnostician. On the contrary, the emphasis is placed upon the rationale, the problems of reliability, validity, objectivity, and restricted areas of usefulness of these instruments. Part III approaches clinical activities with hypotheses, or "best guesses," to be checked and rechecked by recourse to the scientific method operative in the clinical laboratory. Although first mentioned at this point, the emphasis throughout the book is centered upon the problem approach, in contradistinction to testing for testing's sake. Part IV presents the views and describes illustratively the techniques of clinical psychologists in the field of psychological treatment. In Part V, the final chapter stresses the psychologist's ever-present role as a research worker in the clinical laboratory, the size of which few have yet ascertained by exploring experimentally and statistically its vast resources.
