Psychologists want to do a good job, but keeping up-to-date with changes in the field is difficult. Neimeyer et al. (2012) estimated that the half-life for the knowledge base of a professional psychologist is 9 years and will soon decline to 7, although the half-life varies across specialty. These articles strive to help psychologists keep up-to-date by encouraging them to reflect on some of the most significant changes in the field of psychotherapy in the last 10 years. These articles are enriched by the feedback of participants in continuing education workshops on What Is New in King of Prussia, Erie, Bedford Springs, and Lancaster, PA. We refer to some of their contributions in these articles.
These articles are neither definitive nor final, but they are the basis for more discussion and reflection. Remember the adage “the map is not the territory.” These articles are not the territory; nor do they even purport to be the map. They are only a fragment of the map that readers need to complete for themselves.
