  • Society for a Science of Clinical Psychology - History
    or too professionally involved The individual clinical psychologist has been caught in the middle of a sad controversy that is as wasteful as it is unnecessary A myth has developed to the effect that there is real incompatibility of interests and behavior between the academic and clinical worlds The creation of this section is an affirmation of the belief that the scientist and the practitioner not only can be reunited but must be in order to continue the profession of clinical psychology as a viable useful and unique one in society The members of the organizing committee also discussed alternative names for the new group It appeared that the only way to make the new section acceptable to the Division s Executive Committee would be to suggest in the selection of a name that members of Section III constituted a relatively narrow interest group Some people did favor a greater emphasis on the behavioral perspective and argued for using terms such as learning reinforcement and behavior modification in the name On the other hand most members were struggling hard to ensure that the group would not promote a specific philosophy or therapeutic agenda The broader minded people eventually prevailed The word experimental was inserted into the name as a compromise that might appear to narrow the group s focus albeit in a somewhat ambiguous way The word could be taken to mean either that the section was focused upon the experimental analysis of behavior or radical behaviorism or else primarily concerned with laboratory research e g experimental psychopathology Unfortunately this change may have deflected attention from the group s broad commitment to the constantly expanding base of knowledge generated by scientific psychology regardless of the specific theory or type of research design with which it might be associated The Organizing Committee finally decided that the group would be called the Section for the Development of Clinical Psychology as an Experimental Behavioral Science The changes in the statement of purpose and the group s name were accepted by the Division s executive committee in 1966 and Section III was finally in business The first executive committee of Section III was composed of Len Krasner Len Ullmann Arnold Goldstein Ken Heller and Fred Kanfer Krazner was elected the first chairperson around the time of the annual APA meeting in 1966 Table 1 lists the membership of the new section as it appeared in September 1966 The first full set of Section III officers was elected in 1967 with Leonard Ullmann serving as chairperson Footnote 4 There were 190 members 75 full members in Division 12 and 25 affiliated by membership in APA The size of the membership has remained relatively steady since the group s inception never expanding much beyond 500 members Footnote 5 It is still a relatively small group in which academic psychologists are heavily represented In August of 1992 there were 289 members of the Section including 42 graduate student members Table 2 updates the list of the Section s officers throughout the following years In 1991 the members of Section III voted to change the organization s name to the Society for a Science of Clinical Psychology SSCP The original name had always been a burden It was long and difficult to remember Most people referred to the group as Section III which described its place within APA but did not identify the values and purpose for which it was formed Perhaps more importantly the original dispute with the Division s executive committee had resulted in the use of a phrase Experimental Behavioral Science that was often construed in narrow terms and may therefore have detracted from the true spirit of the organization and its members The group changed its name in order to clarify that the knowledge base upon which it is founded includes all of psychological science The new name succinctly summarizes the reason for the existence of the society The members of SSCP have always been a diverse group exploring various frontiers at the interface of science and practice For better and for worse they have tended to be scholars rather than activists While other groups like Section I Clinical Child Psychology and Section II psychotherapy were organized by a topic the members of Section III share an intellectual commitment to the importance of empirical research its integration with clinical practice and the central role that scientific principles should play in the training and future development of clinical psychologists Many members of other sections also belong to SSCP It is not a group that was intended to focus on a specific problem area or a particular population or a favorite form of intervention Many of the earliest members of SSCP were leaders in various intellectual movements and special interest groups within clinical psychology including behavior therapy and the experimental analysis of behavior community psychology experimental psychopathology psychotherapy research personality research health psychology and behavioral medicine and behavior genetics The group s members include people who are particularly concerned with the problems of children as well as those who have focused on adult populations As clinical psychology has continued to evolve and as its horizons have expanded SSCP has continued to include within its membership a broad representation of these interests Over the past 25 years SSCP has promoted the role of science in clinical psychology through four primary sets of activities First the members of SSCP have influenced the policies and programs of the Division of Clinical Psychology Training and credentialing of clinical psychologists has continued to be one major concern of our membership Footnote 6 We have a representative on the Executive Committee suggest appointments to standing committees and promote our members for fellowship status within Division 12 We maintain representatives on the program committee to encourage data based presentations during APA annual meetings Two former presidents of SSCP have recently chaired the Division s program committee Karen Calhoun in 1990 and Lynn Rehm in 1991 In addition to its continued sponsorship of two
