Psychology in Health Care:: Future Directions Academic Article uri icon


  • The nature of health care delivery in the U. S. will change radically in the next 5 years, and the nature of psychological services provided will also change. Psychology is evolving into a primary health care profession, at least in terms of "health psychology" broadly defined. Modern clinical health psychology includes, at the minimum, rehabilitation psychology, neuropsychology, and traditional health psychology. The present article represents the views of 20 experts from this evolving area of practice and research on matters of public policy, training, and the future of psychology in health care settings.
