As a result of the increased awareness on the part of the public of the need for psychiatric and psychologic care, the spotlight has been turned increasingly on clinical psychology by those active in this field, as well as by those in allied professions. Among the major concerns of these persons is the nature of the training that shall be required for the making of a good clinical psychologist, and this further involves the question, "What is a clinical psychologist, and in what areas shall he operate?" A two day conference was held under the auspices of the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation in an effort to get an exchange of ideas on this matter and so to help construct a working program for training in clinical psychology. The meeting was attended by psychiatrists, psychoanalysts, psychologists and psychiatric social workers.
