Overview

Now in its 2006/2007 edition, this perennial bestseller is the resource students count on for the most current information on applying to doctoral programs in clinical or counseling psychology. The Insider's Guide presents up-to-date facts on 300 accredited programs in the United States and Canada. Each program's 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 time line, worksheets to aid in selecting schools and making informed final decisions, and updated listings of more than 75 websites providing help with a variety of topics—from the GREs to financial aid.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: This is the updated edition of THE essential and 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. This book is never a recapitulation. It is always revamped, fresh, and discusses the latest changes to the admissions process.
Audience: Written primarily for those seeking admission to graduate programs in clinical and counseling psychology, this book will also prove helpful to individuals with master's degrees who are considering doctoral level programs. The authors are cognizant of the needs of undergraduates and returning graduate students. The authors clearly present 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 standalone 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. Unique are the extensive reports on individual graduate programs in clinical, counseling, and professional-scientific psychology. The multiple worksheets and timeline in the appendixes serve as an excellent aid.
Assessment: This guide continues to evolve with the graduate process in psychology and honestly answers the questions that arise among those considering graduate study in psychology. This is one of the most informative guides on the market today, and should be considered mandatory reading for all undergraduates and those considering graduate school. This guide continues to be a reliable and essential resource worthy of publication each academic year. It is objective, informative, and almost like having your own personal advisor to guide you along the way.
From the Publisher
"Students need to realize that the Insider's Guide is much more than a shopping list of statistics about programs to be picked up just 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. In addition to helping students decide where to apply, the book offers advice on undergraduate course selection, describes the various career options available within professional psychology, and guides the reader in writing letters of inquiry, preparing for interviews, and deciding where to go once accepted. For students who would benefit from a well-structured, concise set of guidelines and useful checklists, this book fits the bill."—Bryan D. Fantie, PhD, Psi Chi Advisor; Department of Psychology, American University

"Imagine for a moment, a growing crowd of people who are all attempting to get through doors that are passageways to the careers they desperately want. If you find yourself in this reality that students face in attempting to gain admission to graduate programs in clinical psychology, the Insider's Guide is a 'must read."—C. R. Snyder, PhD, Director of Clinical Psychology, University of Kansas
