I had some trouble finding a publisher for my book on the education of professional psychologists. To begin with, the thrust of my argument went upcurrent against mainstream opinion. The prevailing view was that all psychologists, practitioners and re-searchers alike, were and ought to be scientists at the core of their being, and were best prepared for their careers in academic departments of psychology. The problem with this view was that practice and research in psychology, like practice and research in medicine and engineering, are not identical enterprises. That is why we have different curricula and educational settings for physicians and biochemists, different curricula and educational settings for engineers and physicists, and needed, I claimed, different curricula and educational settings for practitioners and researchers in psychology.
