Clinical Psychology Observed examines the contradictory ntate of British clinical psychology. It contrasts its confident public persona with its private insecurity and confusion. The authors, David Pilgrim and Andy Treacher, examine this paradox in relation to the cultural history of clinical psychology, its training practices and its responses to the radical changes in health care policy in the 1980s. In so doing, they discuss the problems facing practioners in the future.
