The gap between science and practice: A conversation.

The authors, friends, colleagues, and collaborators for almost 60 years engage in an informal discussion concerning the gap between science and practice. They identify some sources of the problem, some manifestations of it, and point the way to some possible solutions. The articles in this special section, because of their use of data collected in a naturalistic setting and the prominent role of clinicians, are viewed as one of many promising directions for the reconciliation of the activity of researchers and the needs of clinicians.
