Training Tomorrow's Integrators in Today's Busy Intersection: Better Look Four Ways Before Crossing
Abstract

As the modern integration movement continues to mature, three factors seem crucial to future training efforts. At the same time that third party control (managed care) and a burgeoning interest in spirituality (third party presence) are sending shock waves through the profession of applied psychology, leaders in the integration field are announcing an evolution of focus toward more practical and personal integration. These converging themes cast long implications across the construction of training programs which will spawn a new generation of integrators. In this article I discuss trends in training and suggest that future instructional efforts should be informed by four views: Out (practical integration), In (personal integration), Back (classic integration/soul care), and Forward (contemporary integration). I present and critique the Institute of Clinical Theology, an existing educational model based on these four views, and conclude with 12 training goals.
