Question 6: What recommendations do you have for actively integrating science and practice into our

Sandy's Response:

We have perpetuated narrow definitions of psychological science and practice which exacerbate a false dichotomy. General applied psychologists and many APA applied psychology divisions routinely integrate psychological science and practice but have limited visibility at APA. We need a broader, integrated view of psychology. Additional strategies promoting integration include:

  • Increasing focus on translational science

  • Enhancing synthesis of existing knowledge organized around specific topics/applications

  • Supporting/encouraging editorial practices that emphasize translational research practices

  • Developing working groups, staffed by experts in science/practice integration, to further identify innovative ways to apply scientific knowledge to practice and to integrate practitioners’ knowledge and expertise into science
