About this title

Synopsis:

McReynolds (clinical psychologist and emeritus professor of psychology, U. of Nevada, Reno) considers the life of Lightning Witmer (1867-1956), founder of clinical psychology, a pioneer of school psychology, and one of the major developers of special education. The largely chronological narrative focuses heavily on the development of Witmer's ideas and the accomplishments of his career, including his founding of the world's first psychological clinic at the U. of Pennsylvania in 1896. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

From the Back Cover:

This book chronicles the life of a major figure in American psychology. Lightner Witmer, widely recognized as the founder of clinical psychology, is perhaps best known for establishing the world's first psychological clinic at the University of Pennsylvania in 1896. Witmer was also a primary pioneer of school psychology and special education, but his most enduring contribution may be his insistence that the fruits of scientific psychology could have practical benefits - that is, that psychology could be mobilized to help people having personal difficulties in living. Author Paul McReynolds, the preeminent authority on Witmer, presents Witmer's life in a largely chronological, narrative fashion, in which personal events and circumstances provide an enriching backdrop to Witmer's scientific, academic, and clinical accomplishments.
