During the early decades of the 20th century, Comparative and Clinical Psychology developed together. Many of the most famous names in psychology during that time published materials that covered both fields of study.
That relationship waned during the latter part of the 20th century to the point that today these two fields are largely separate from each other.
As a way of addressing this matter, the International Journal of Comparative Psychology (IJCP) is issuing a “Call for Papers” for a Special Issue entitled:
“Exploring the Intersection of Comparative and Clinical Psychology”.
