The Future in Psychology

  • Greg Bohall
  • Mary-Jo Bautista


Now that the professional development foundation, mastery of the external, and professional development have been covered, we can now look into the future. Of all the chapters in this publication, this is the chapter we are most excited about. The goal of this chapter is to provide an overview of some new developments in psychology and to review different disciplines in psychology and their trajectories. In this chapter, we will review the status of prescriptive authority for psychologists, the relationship between psychology and interrogation, the relationship between psychology and coaching, and review the definition of evidence-based practice and psychology as a science. The chapter will conclude with a review of 13 different disciplines in psychology; in this section we outline the discipline and some developments in an effort to understand the trajectory of each discipline. It is a very exciting time to be a psychologist and we hope that this information is helpful!
