Beyond Consensus: A Summary of the Special Series and Future of the Combined-Integrated Model
Journal of Clinical Psychology
The articles that comprise this Special Series offer a comprehensive examination of the results and implications of the Consensus Conference and Combined-Integrated (C-I) model of doctoral training in professional psychology (see Shealy, Cobb, Crowley, Nelson, & Peterson, 2004). Given the scope of this effort, it may be helpful to provide a summary of the 12 preceding articles. Such a presentation should illustrate the complementarity of the diverse perspectives presented in this series, the essential coherence of this innovative and compelling model of education and training, and its timely relevance for the future of professional psychology. Following a summary of these articles, eight “future topics for discussion” also are presented.
