Abstract

‘Extending the reach of clinical psychology’ concerns the future, and reviews some recent developments that seem likely to take clinical psychology further in its quest to balance science with concern for individual health and wellbeing. The roles of clinical psychologists are developing and the field of clinical psychology is expanding across national boundaries. Social priorities are evolving and the profession is changing in response. Clinical psychologists’ skills are also developing, linked to advances in medicine, communication, technology, and science. Clinical psychology is perfectly placed to contribute to the development of solutions to some of the urgent and widespread challenges facing society, besides attending to people’s intimate and individual personal experiences.
