Adventures in Integrated Care Collection Booklet

Adventures in Integrated Care Collection Booklet

Improving the health of people requires that they have access to effective and efficient psychological services for the prevention and treatment of a wide range of emotional and behavioral conditions. Psychologists are actively involved in clinical treatment, health system design, and the implementation of innovative approaches to health care.

To illustrate this important connection and promote the valuable role psychology plays in health care, the Monitor on Psychology published Adventures in Integrated Care, a yearlong series of articles that showcase psychology practitioners who work on a variety of medical teams, reporting on what these practitioners do and how they got the education and training to do it.

We have placed all these articles into a collection booklet for you to read in one convenient place. Please enjoy.
