In 1969, David Shakow, generally acknowledged as the founding father of modern-day clinical psychology, recounted his 40-year odyssey in the field. He focused on advances in training, diagnosis and assessment, and treatment, and projected trends in these areas in the years to come. The author recounts his own 40-year odyssey, beginning in 1969, and reflects on the remarkable growth of clinical psychology, progress that has occurred in the areas of training, diagnosis and assessment, and treatment, and the extent to which Shakow’s vision has been realized.
