Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Antoinette E. Kavanaugh, PhD (Northwestern University School of Law)
Description: This new book guides the reader through the process of applying to a clinical internship and navigating the internship year.
Purpose: For clinical psychology and professional school students, internship marks the period of transition from student to professional. Internships require interns to take on the role of clinician, staff member, and trainee, all at the same time. The aim of this book is to help interns meet the demands of these roles.
Audience: Students applying to clinical internships or about to start their internship will find this a useful addition to their professional library. Additionally, clinical supervisors, internship staff, and professors who mentor graduate students will find this book of interest.
Features: For those applying to internship, this book provides the reader with a useful list of internship directories. For those on internship, the book's assets include case examples, vignettes, and detailed lists of things to consider when preparing a case history, charting, writing test reports, and admitting patients. Finally, the chapter on psychopharmacology provides interns with pertinent clinical factors (e.g., doses, side effects, etc.,) for various psychopharmacologic agents.
Assessment: Unlike other books that simply prepare students to apply to internship, this book also prepares students for the rigorous demands of internship. This book is of use to students who are applying to internship or are on internship and to professionals who have contact with students or interns. This book is a needed addition to the field of clinical psychology. College and professional bookstores should carry this book.
