About the Author

John C. Norcross, PhD, ABPP, is Professor of Psychology and Distinguished University Fellow at the University of Scranton, and coauthor of Leaving It at the Office and Authoritative Guide to Self-Help Resources in Mental Health.
 
Michael A. Sayette, PhD, is Professor of Psychology at the University of Pittsburgh, with a secondary appointment in the Department of Psychiatry at the Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
 
Tracy J. Mayne, PhD, conducts research in cancer-supportive therapies in Global Health Economics at Amgen, Inc. Dr. Mayne and Dr. Sayette first developed the Insider’s Guide after comparing notes on their own graduate school admission process — and brainstorming about the kind of information and guidance they wished they had had.
