Practitioner-Researcher Model

The Practitioner-Researcher Model (also called the Scientist-Practitioner Model) proposes that Clinical Psychologists receive training in both professional practice and scientific research and have a firm foundation of knowledge in both areas. According to this model, practicing psychologists should integrate Scientific Methods and findings into their decision-making and service delivery. Likewise, researchers ought to be more directly involved in clinical practice so that their studies are more relevant. This approach is also known as the Boulder model because it was developed at the Boulder Conference on Graduate Education in Clinical Psychology, held in Boulder, Colorado in 1949.
