Psychological Clinical Science offers readers insightful appraisals of the most current theory and research in psychopathology and evidence-based intervention. It honors Richard McFall of Indiana University, a visionary psychological clinical scientist widely recognized for his unwavering advocacy for a science of clinical psychology and for the integration of clinical psychology with other subdisciplines of psychological science. With the publication of this volume, Psychology Press and the Association for Psychological Science are launching jointly a series of festschrifts that honor the careers and contributions of distinguished psychological scientists.

In keeping with McFall's integrative approach to psychological science, contributors to this volume include prominent clinical scientists, cognitive scientists, and neuroscientists. The book details the historical and epistemological underpinnings of psychological clinical science, addresses topics of applied significance, offers an overview of several model research programs, and suggests future directions in clinical science research, application, and training.

An accompanying DVD contains an interview with McFall on his career and the clinical science movement, which provides an inspiring and fascinating glimpse of his perspective on the past, present, and future of psychological clinical science.
