"The Oxford Handbook of Education and Training in Professional Psychology provides a useful and scholarly guide to education and training in psychology. It weaves together a wide range of current and relevant topics in psychology, from rigorous trainee selection through the effective use of telehealth to benefit more mental health consumers. We suggest that educators and mentors in psychology incorporate the ideas from this book into their practice, while simultaneously meeting the critical need for policy expertise by helping students become skilled leaders in public health policy. Only by embracing the call to engage in health policy can psychology thrive in this new era of ACA healthcare." -- PsycCRITIQUES
