Overview

This perennial bestseller, now in its 6th edition, is the resource that students count on for the most current information on applying to doctoral programs in clinical or counseling psychology. Based on the authors' ongoing research, the Insider's Guide presents up-to-date facts on more than 250 accredited programs in the United States and Canada. Each program's in-depth profile includes admissions criteria, acceptance rates, research areas, specialty clinics, and more. The book also shows applicants how to determine which programs best meet their needs; obtain prerequisite credits, clinical experience, and research skills; master personal and telephone interviews; and prepare strong application materials. Special features include sample letters and personal statements, an application timeline, and worksheets to aid in selecting schools and making informed final decisions.

New in the 2000/2001 edition are updated appendices on research areas and clinical opportunities; new information on each program's acceptance rates into APA-accredited internships; profiles of four newly accredited programs; the web address of each school's clinical and/or counseling psychology program; and more than 50 additional websites dealing with a wide variety of topics--from the GREs to financial aid. The techniques outlined in the book enable students to match their skills and interests to a program's strengths and resources, access available web resources to gather information and download application materials, and communicate effectively with contacts at the programs of their choice.

From the Publisher

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Barry A. Hong, PhD (Washington University School of Medicine)
Description: This new edition contains information from over 250 accredited programs in the U.S. and Canada and practical and comprehensive advice about applying to graduate school.
Purpose: The authors divide the daunting process of applying to graduate schools into manageable steps. They draw on research, surveys completed by graduate schools, and personal experience on graduate student selection committees to inform the discussion of how to successfully complete each step of this process. They also provide guidelines for applicants to realistically assess their readiness for graduate school.
Audience: This book is written for applicants interested in obtaining a PhD or PsyD degree in clinical or counseling psychology, although much of the information also applies to students applying to Master's degree programs.
Features: The authors provide information about all phases of the application process, including how to get the experiences needed to be a competitive applicant, write a personal statement, prepare for interviews, and negotiate financial aid packages. Worksheets are included to help rate the congruence between an applicant and programs. The authors also include many helpful examples to follow, such as samples of letters of introduction, curriculum vitae, and interview questions. The degree to which each school emphasizes clinical work or research is rated. The authors also detail the clinical orientation and research interests of faculty members and the average GPA and GRE scores of students at that school. They lay out the book to make this information easy to find, but they do not include the total number of faculty members at each school.
Assessment: The authors have created a valuable guide for applicants. The wealth of practical information and insights gleaned from the authors' 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.

    Your new best friend

    If you are looking to find a book that will introduce you to the graduate world in psychology, this is it! The book is rich with different levels of suggestions. It begins by explaining the different types of graduate programs out there, and as you move further into your graduate search, it gets more in depth. I am applying to schools, and I keep going back to this book to re-read the next chapter on 'applying.' This book will bring you through everything, and answer all questions that you have...
