Analysis of the Action Plans
Joel Meyers, Douglas T. Brown, W. Alan Coulter
One of the most important goals of the Olympia Conference was to develop specific strategies based on the issues raised at Spring Hill. While Spring Hill developed the issues and provided direction to the field in a variety of substantive areas, the goal of the Olympia Conference was to develop more specific action plans. Local, state, and national groups are seen as promoting psychological services for children through these plans. The action plans have been divided into three groups: Legislative Issues, Practice Issues, and Professional Issues. The action plans developed in each of these areas are synthesized and then followed with examples in order to give the reader a representative sample of the major products from the conference. The action plans were developed in response to events that were used as stimulus material. This encouraged participants to think about potential factors which could facilitate or inhibit a given event. The hypothetical events were not intended to represent the reality of the current or future status of the field.
