This book answers these questions and many more that students face after they enroll in graduate school. A carefully selected cadre of authors, all authorities in their respective areas, offer effective strategies and advice that directly address the major issues confronting graduate students, both masters and doctoral level, during their graduate training in psychology.
The breadth of the chapters make this volume relevant to a correspondingly large and diverse array of graduate students and their advisors, including those in applied (e.g., clinical, counseling, school) and nonapplied areas. Organized by three developmental phases in a student's graduate career, Part I deals with issues related to Settling In to life as a graduate student. The next phase, Developing and Maturing, is the theme of Part II. Part III is organized around issues of Winding Down and Gearing Up (all at the same time), that time in graduate training when students are finishing up important requirements such as the dissertation and beginning to move toward their career after graduate school.
