Abstract

This article reviews presentations at recent APA conventions, as well as the composition of APA committees, and other activities and promotions undertaken with the assistance of pharmaceutical companies. In view of the above, it seems clear the medical model has made significant inroads into the psychological community. This paper will attempt to make clear why the APA should try to disassociate itself from a small but influential group of psychologists who are trying to redefine psychology.
