Matthew D. Lerner, Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at Stony Brook University, describes developing an early career trajectory as a clinical scientist that balances the priorities of developing a well-funded research laboratory, offering clinical and research activities that are responsive to the needs of participant and clinic client populations, and establishing effective ties to local communities. David Sbarra, Director of Clinical Training at the University of Arizona and President of the Academy of Psychological Clinical Science (APCS), will focus on four concepts that he argues are “active ingredients” for training clinical scientists: individualized training, flexible training, research synergy, and the reciprocal nature of research and clinical work. Nancy Liu, Clinic Director of the graduate training clinic at the University of California, Berkeley, describes the unique role of training clinics clinically, in implementing evidence-based practice, and scientifically, in using clinical work to inform research and contribute to generalizable findings. Robert Levenson, former Director of the Clinical Science Program at Berkeley and current President of the Psychological Clinical Science Accreditation System (PCSAS), describes current issues in clinical science training and accreditation as they relate to future roles for clinical scientists in research, practice, dissemination, and policy. Casey Brown, a doctoral student in the Clinical Science program at Berkeley, describes the program of combined clinical and research training she developed with Dr. Persons. Ms. Brown is treating a small number of patients at Dr. Persons’ CBT & Science Center, and she is collecting self-report and physiological data from these patients to intensively study the change process. Ryan Beveridge, Associate Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences and Co-Director of Clinical Training at the University of Delaware, will describe a national clinical science training vision (the Delaware Project) emphasizing continuity and interdependence among the stages of intervention science research, and will describe a research and clinical training center that espouses Delaware Project values in training doctoral students.
