The Future of Clinical Psychology

Sure, clinical psychology has made progress in the last century. There's now cognitive-behavioral therapy, SSRIs and such but they're no, pardon the pun, magic pill.

Clinical psychology's progress is dwarfed by other fields' advances. For example, a century ago, a person might be institutionalized for predicting that today, people would carry a device in their pocket that can video-call anyone wirelessly for free (Skype,) watch thousands of techno-marvel movies (NetFlix,) and instantly search much of the world's information (Google.)

Fortunately, recent progress in neuropsychology is laying the foundation for equally dramatic changes in clinical psychology.

My article today offers some of the changes in clinical psychology that neuroscience and molecular biology portend.
