|May 14-17, 2009
San Antonio, Texas
This landmark summit brought together 100 psychologists and 50 other experts to begin shaping a new vision for psychology.
Several forces are challenging the relevance of the traditional 50-minute intervention. These include changing economics, scientific and technological advances, increasing diversity and collaborations with other professionals.
To thrive, psychologists must embrace new opportunities and find new ways of using their skills. This summit was the first step in crafting a new road-map for the profession.
