It honors Richard McFall of Indiana University, a visionary psychological clinical scientist widely recognized for his unwavering advocacy for a science of clinical psychology and for the integration of clinical psychology with other subdisciplines of psychological science. With the publication of this volume, Psychology Press and the Association for Psychological Science are launching jointly a series of festschrifts that honor the careers and contributions of distinguished psychological scientists. In keeping with McFall's integrative approach to psychological science, contributors to this volume include prominent clinical scientists, cognitive scientists, and neuroscientists.

An accompanying DVD contains an interview with McFall on his career and the clinical science movement, which provides an inspiring and fascinating glimpse of his perspective on the past, present, and future of psychological clinical science.The connotative links are to a€œmaintenance manualsa€ for lawn mowers and Toyota Camrys.
