In this joint publication of the American Psychological Association and the National Council of Schools of Professional Psychology (NCSPP), leaders in professional psychology education address the commitment of professional schools to quality in the education and training of clinical, counseling, and school psychologists. A wide scope of professional training and education issues are addressed, including admissions, accreditation, curriculum and curricular review, faculty development and organization and administration.

The book is divided into two parts: Part I deals with quality control issues in professional psychology, and Part II contains the results of a self-study of all professional schools that are part of the NCSPP.
