Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“I am writing to thank you for the second time for the remarkable resource your 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

“There is a definite need for this book, which improves with every edition. Prospective graduate students will significantly increase their chances of gaining admission to clinical doctoral programs when they use this outstanding guide.”--Arnold A. Lazarus, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Rutgers University

“I cannot express enough gratitude to you for the Insider's Guide to Graduate Programs in Clinical and Counseling Psychology. Your book was THE most important resource that I used during my applications to PhD programs in counseling psychology. It is exceptionally written, incredibly applicable and most importantly 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

“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

“Students need to realize that the Insider’s Guide is much more than a shopping list of statistics about programs to be picked up before sending off the first wave of applications. In fact, this is a resource that all students seriously considering careers in professional psychology will find valuable as soon as they declare their major.”--Bryan D. Fantie, PhD, Director of Behavioral Neuroscience, American University
