"This is a report based on a conference on training for research in psychology held in the summer of 1960 at Lake Opinicon, Ontario. The conferencewas planned by the Canadian Psychological Association and attended by fort y leading Canadian psychologists. It was concerned with problems of expanding and improving the quality of research in psychology in Canada, and inevitably dealt mainly with the training of both academically and professionally oriented students in university departments of psychology. The various chapters show the trend of the discussions of such important questions as thefollowing: What training procedures are likely to develop psycholigsts who will remain productive in research, and will set high standards for their work? How may research be initiated and supported in departments of psychology? What can be done to encourage research in hitherto neglected areas of psychology? The report presents the resolutions related to this topics on which the Conference members had an opportunity to vote." - from the dust jacket. Contents: 1. Background of the Conference; 2.
