Editorial Reviews

PsycCRITIQUES

“An invaluable resource for anyone considering a career in health service psychology. It is useful for undergraduate students, academic advisors, career counselors, and individuals looking to make a career change. Of critical importance is the first chapter of the book, which emphasizes what psychology is and why to choose it as a profession. Although books with similar missions exist, the Insider's Guide has several advantages. It is extensively researched and referenced, with its perspectives substantiated by data. Regular updates ensure that its advice reflects changing program criteria and admissions processes, making it more useful than books that are updated less frequently or that offer static advice in time….Taken as a whole, the Insider's Guide remains an important achievement for the field. It offers a wealth of information and is an unparalleled resource for doctoral hopefuls. Given the incredible competition to gain admission into a clinical or counseling program…applicants need all the information and advice they can get to ensure admissions success. The current edition, like its predecessors before it, offers the data and tools needed to help applicants make informed decisions, apply to programs with training models that are the best fit for their needs, and increase their chances for acceptance. I highly recommend it for anyone considering graduate study in psychology and for those advising others through the process. The book and the thoughtful process it recommends are memorable starting points for what promises to be a long, rewarding and exciting career journey.”--PsycCRITIQUES

“This is a useful resource for public and college libraries. Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers.”--Choice Reviews
From the Publisher

"A 'must read."... Like many other Directors of Clinical Training, I could continue to pull my hair out over the increased individual inquiries regarding how to get into graduate school, or simply refer each individual to the well-written, fact-based latest edition of the Insider’s Guide."--Sally H. Barlow, PhD, Director of Clinical Training, Brigham Young University

"The authors have created a valuable guide for applicants. The wealth of practical information and insights gleaned from their research and personal experiences should help applicants make the strongest possible application to the schools of their choice. This well-written, encouraging book will be a great asset for anyone applying to clinical or counseling psychology programs."--Barry A. Hong, PhD, Washington University School of Medicine
"I love your book! This book is excellent for focusing upon specific areas of interest as well as going about the process in a systematic, logical manner. Great job!"--Helen Rowan, MA, clinician returning for her doctorate 
 
"Your book is simply a godsend! I found it to be instructive, informative, and a great comfort."--Emily M. Douglas, psychology undergraduate

"I was lost and confused before I stumbled across this wonderful piece of literature! It answered every question I had, narrowed down my choices. The ranking system was great!"--Lisa Oldfield, clinical psychology applicant
 
"Your book has helped me immensely. It was fun to read and contained great suggestions and insights that I would have been clueless about. Thank you for providing this resource for students!"--Timothy G. Lock, graduate student
 
"Your book means so much to me. The Insider’s Guide was the most helpful piece of literature I came across during my years of research into graduate programs. It was almost like a bible to me."--Sharon Lee Hudson, doctoral student
 
"I bought your book at the suggestion of my undergraduate psychology advisor once I decided to go back to school after spending nearly 10 years in the nonprofit sector. Your book has been extremely helpful and I have used it as my road map in guiding my efforts to set myself up to be successful in applying to schools this year. Thank you for writing this book--I really would not have known how to navigate the process without it."--George Lewis 
 
"I am writing to thank you for the second time for the remarkable resource the Insider’s Guide has been. My girlfriend has just successfully utilized your most recent edition and has been accepted into a clinical PhD program. Great stuff!"--Jason Paris, graduate student
 
"I cannot express enough gratitude to you for the Insider’s Guide. Your book was the most important resource that I used during my applications to PhD programs in counseling psychology. It is exceptionally well written, incredibly applicable, and, most important, it is clear, concise, and pragmatic. Thank you so much for remembering how stressful and chaotic the application process can be, as well as being empathic enough to pull together a resource that I am sure has helped so many graduate students."--Kimberly Tran, doctoral student
