Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: This is an update of a practical guide for those who are considering pursuing graduate level degrees in clinical or counseling psychology.
Purpose: The purpose of the book is to provide an organized system to guide potential graduate candidates in making a well-informed decision about their own interests and the programs to which they may apply. The author's objectives are timely, well-intentioned, and without a doubt met by this latest edition.
Audience: Written primarily for anyone seeking admission to graduate programs in clinical and counseling psychology, individuals with master's degrees who are considering doctoral level programs will also find this book beneficial. The authors are cognizant of the needs of undergraduates and returning graduate students. The authors clearly bring forth a considerable amount of insider knowledge in a genuinely logical manner.
Features: This updated and revised edition highlights the progressive changes in applying to graduate programs and is an exceptional stand-alone guide. Readers are guided through each step of this arduous process and can easily reference this book at any point in time, for instance after a letter of acceptance or rejection. A unique feature are the extensive reports on individual graduate programs in clinical, counseling, and professional-scientific psychology. The multiple worksheets and timeline in the appendixes serve excellent aids.
Assessment: As the graduate process continues to evolve and as new challenges and questions arise among those considering graduate study in psychology, the need for a reliable, insider's guide to graduate programs in clinical and counseling psychology is essential. This latest publication answers this need and is clearly a necessity for each academic year. I only wish I would have been fortunate enough to have had this resource when I was applying to programs. Those who purchase this book will be quite fortunate to have such a resource.
