Abstract

The ways in which the scientist-practitioner model has been implemented in the admissions and training processes of psychology programs are examined. Institutional pressures on counseling psychology faculty have led to admissions procedures that are highly biased in favor of science. Not only have most training programs failed to provide the clinical training desired and needed by practitioners, but even the most scientifically oriented programs have often failed to provide the conditions necessary to the development of talented researchers. Recommendations are given for admissions and training procedures that can bring about a stronger integration of science and practice.
