Dr. Witmer was concerned about the welfare of children who had extreme academic difficulties in school. He started evaluating their intellectual and psychological difficulties and treated them systematically. His systematic approach quickly became popular and similar psychological clinics opened all over the United States.
In the 1896 meeting of the American Psychological Association, he proposed the importance of helping people who need psychological services. He wrote, “in the final analysis the progress of psychology, as of every other science, will be determined by the value and amount of its contributions to the advancement of the human race.” This psychological clinic had an honorable mission of treating all people, as evidenced by his statement “for the treatment of all classes of children suffering from….(difficulties) interfering with school progress.” His suggested principles have been applied to the training of clinical psychologists in North America and his pioneering works and vision are alive in our Center for International Psychological Services.
