Marwit (1982, see record 1982-28952-001) argues persuasively for the benefits of university affiliation for schools of professional psychology. However, as part of his discussion, he draws on questionable data in citing the need for additional training programs of this kind. His argument depends on the juxtaposition of epidemiological data, which summarize the prevalence of psychological disorder, and service-availability data. Because there are insufficient practitioners to serve the psychologically disturbed population, Marwit concludes that more practitioners are needed. Marwit's analysis fails to attend to several important considerations. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
