The purpose of this article was to respond to S. T. Wegener, K. J. Hagglund, and T. R. Elliott's (1998) interpretation of the Boulder model as applied to the training of rehabilitation psychologists. The authors strongly believe that there should be many acceptable paths to becoming a rehabilitation psychologist. Moreover, concerted efforts should be made to make rehabilitation psychology an academic discipline, and professional specialty, that is neither subsumed under nor merely an add-on to counseling or clinical psychology.
