Specialized Training for Research

  • Leslie Phillips


In clinical psychology the concept of research includes the development of new knowledge and new methods in the area of mental health programming. As noted in the report16 on the Stanford Conference, “Present knowledge of the nature, etiology and treatment of mental illness and of the factors involved in the establishment and maintenance of mental health is so inadequate that research must be given highest priority,” and “... opinion favored placing higher priority on research and on the development of preventive programs” (p. 128).
