University Professor Emeritus James Maddux recently returned from a trip to Port of Spain, the capital city of Trinidad and Tobago, where he visited the medical school at the St. Augustine campus of the University of the West Indies. Maddux had several meetings with students and faculty members (psychologists and psychiatrists) in the masters of science program in clinical psychology to discuss a proposed clinical doctoral degree at the university. They also discussed the development of a clinical psychology training clinic. Maddux also had meetings with members of the Trinidad and Tobago Association of Psychologists about assisting in the development of the country's first laws regulating the practice of psychology. Maddux will most likely return in the next six-to-twelve months to offer a workshop on clinical supervision. In the meantime, consultation on the issues noted above will continue. Maddux is also a Senior Scholar in George Mason's Center for the Advancement of Well-Being, which partially funded his visit.
