This series presents methods, strategies, and techniques for conducting day-to-day practice in any clinical psychology. This volume addresses best practices across the functional and foundational competencies that characterize clinical psychology. Functional competencies include common practice activities like assessment and intervention, while foundational competencies represent core knowledge areas such as ethical and legal issues, cultural diversity, and professional identification. In addition to describing these competencies, this book provides a definition, description, and development timeline of clinical psychology, including its essential and characteristic pattern of activities, as well as its distinctive and unique features.
