Science Practitioner Model Gap

- Research indicates that efforts to reconcile science and practice in psychology since the Boulder conference in 1949 have mostly failed (Hayes, 1999). The scientist-practitioner (SP) ideal claims that practitioners should consume new research, evaluate their own methods as well as research and share their findings with other practitioners and scientists (Hayes et al, 1999). The SP gap has implications in a managed-care system in that it can make professionals accountable, ensures research is relevant to practice and provides structure and a theoretical framework for practitioners; without these, there is risk of losing accountability, the profession to the dominant scientific paradigm and go...   [tags: Science, Psychology, Practice, Research]
