Abstract

Considers the role of the psychologist in public policymaking. The specific medico-legal issues related to organ and tissue transplants from minor donors are reviewed, along with the background of a subcommittee of the Massachusetts Special Legislative Commission Concerning Human Clinical Investigation and Experimental Therapy. Substantive social psychological contributions to the subcommittee are reported. The psycholgist's role in public policy is reconsidered; emphasis is placed on the need for (a) training in the application of basic-research knowledge to social problems, and (b) preparation for assuming more active policymaking roles.
