Richardson, T., 2009. Challenges for the scientist-practitioner model in contemporary clinical psychology. Psych-Talk, 62, pp. 20-26.
The scientist-practitioner model of clinical psychology is the most widely used model in doctoral training schemes throughout the Western world today. However, there are a number of controversies with its implementation into modern clinical practice. This paper discusses such issues, focusing on a number of key areas; controversies surrounding evidence-based practice, conflicts with idiographic approaches to treatment, discussions over whether clinical psychologists can be both scientist and practitioner, and possible alternative models.
