Description:
"We exist under the auspices of the E.H.B., to make available in the most appropriate and effective way the knowledge and skills of psychology, to promote psychological well-being and to prevent and alleviate psychological problems at both individual and social levels." It is beyond the proper scope of this assignment to critique this statement but it is necessary to draw out some of its implications as perceived by this consultant. Key words are: - Under the auspices of - To make available - Promote psychological well-being Prevent and alleviate psychological problems There is a passive, subordinate ring to the first two noted phrases, and the second two tend to separate out the psychological dimension of health. This latter tendency is inconsistent with a more holistic paradigm as expressly favoured by psychologists themselves. The following mission statement and the supporting strategies which would follow naturally, would represent a synthesis of what the consultant heard from the psychologists.
