Abstract and Keywords

Education and training in professional psychology have a rich history. In the last half century, the scientific and theoretical literature bearing on training future psychologists has dramatically accelerated. This chapter introduces the Oxford Handbook of Education and Training in Professional Psychology, the most comprehensive treatment of the topic to date. This handbook covers the full spectrum of historical developments, salient issues, current standards, and emerging trends in professional psychology education and training. We summarize the contributions of chapter authors—all luminaries in the discipline, and highlight the current state of the art in distinct domains of psychology education and training. We conclude this chapter with several bold predictions for the future of training in psychology.

Keywords: professional psychology, competence, education, training
