  • Science and Professional Practice: Opening a Two-Way Dialogue | Section 10, Division 12
    psychological field is in a current state of fragmentation as well as an epistemological tension The scientists are frustrated with the fact that clinicians are not practicing according to the utmost empirical support At the same time clinicians are frustrated with the lack of sophistication in empirical methods as well as with the limitations of deriving claims about the human experience from randomized controlled trials RCTs Each has valid concerns and if they ceased to double down on their own scientific or humanistic values they might find complementarity and value in one another I believe that the argument boils down to the fundamental value of either objective or subjective truth The scientist believes that objective truth exists and though he might have his doubts if the clinician were to demonstrate the objective efficacy of for instance humanistic therapy for depression he would acknowledge that However the clinician if she were truly humanistically oriented above all else would never conduct such a study Broadly she does not believe that it is necessary and so she is not interested Further she would not value the results of an RCT anyway The scientists and humanists represent uniquely valuable perspectives and many believe that they should come together for the sake of cumulative knowledge however in order to do so they should not double down on their own positions when speaking to one another After all the point of an academic debate is not necessarily to determine which is the winner and which is the loser but to challenge each opponent to consider new ways of thinking require them to flesh out their ideas in greater depth and to see if a consensus may be reached so that the audience may leave with an insightful new view Because of the tension in the field

  • Developing a Personal Theoretical Orientation as a Clinical Psychology Doctoral Student | Section 10, Division 12
    practicum and internship offer educational and applied experiences for students to engage in self reflection and discovery of a theoretical approach that fits their goals and vision of therapy The analysis and evaluation of personal beliefs and values life experiences and education are influential in the development of a personal theoretical orientation For example a graduate student working in a community mental health agency with adult survivors of child abuse might gravitate toward a psychodynamic approach A hallmark of the psychodynamic perspective is that it focuses on exploring how clients childhood experiences and significant relationships provide insight into their current presenting problems Alternatively a graduate student facilitating an inpatient support group for clients with eating disorders might find cognitive behavioral theory CBT to be most appropriate This approach focuses on identifying challenging and adjusting maladaptive thoughts of clients Equally important students may gravitate towards an integrative approach which blends two or more single theoretical modalities As discussed earlier some graduate programs are guided by the theoretical orientations of faculty Considering this fact students should consult faculty members to learn if the psychology department approves or disapproves of theoretical integration among students Faculty that support an integrative approach play an important role in helping students obtain field experiences where they can combine different therapeutic techniques with clients However faculty that value traditional theoretical orientations in psychotherapy will unlikely complete letters of recommendation for students interested in an integrative approach Attending professional conferences provides additional exposure for students to acquire knowledge about various theoretical orientations and network with professionals that use particular approaches The Internet is a valuable resource to search for psychological associations affiliated with specific theoretical orientations and typically provide resources training opportunities and conferences For example a Google search for CBT associations resulted in the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies ABCT the National Association of Cognitive Behavioral Therapists and the Academy of Cognitive Therapy Similarly Internet search queries for psychological associations for person centered theory psychodynamic theory integrative therapy and other theories provide avenues for students to gain membership with professional organizations tied to a theoretical orientation Additionally accessing peer reviewed articles in psychology databases provides further knowledge of theories PsycINFO established by the American Psychological Association APA is an abstract database where students can access scholarly journal articles book chapters dissertations and publications in the behavioral and social sciences American Psychological Association 2015 PsycINFO allows access to seminal and contemporary research about theoretical orientations and psychotherapy effectiveness with diverse populations Reading publications will enhance students understanding about the strengths and criticisms of various theoretical orientations as well as theoretical contributions to the field of psychology Reading scholarly critiques will help students determine which theoretical approaches are useful for their professional development As graduate students engage in the process of developing a theoretical orientation it is important to have an open attitude to incorporate new learning and ways of thinking Practicum internship and trainings will provide exposure to new techniques and theories to expand one s outlook on

  • The Graduate Student’s Role in Diversity Training | Section 10, Division 12
    the clinician the profession and ultimately the client This gap likely reflects a split between cognitive and affective dimensions of issues of race class sexual identity and socioeconomic class that impedes a more productive dialogue on these issues Tummala Narra 2009 p 325 The growing need for instruction on diversity underscores the importance for the graduate student to get the most from any training they experience Much in line with Helm s 1990 model of racial identity movement it is important for the student to understand who they are in terms of race ethnicity gender socioeconomic status and age Understanding these aspects of the self support the student s learning in terms of interpretation which is influenced by sociocultural factors within a dialectical process Tummala Narra 2009 p 328 There are some things that the graduate student can do in an effort to prepare for diversity focused training Prior to starting training the graduate student can begin to consider his or her own racial experiences specifically how those unique observations shape their own ongoing construction of reality Tummala Narra 2009 This type of thinking may be more difficult for a White student who likely does not necessarily consider these factors in their daily experience and can help to start the process of conceptualizing race and its impact in life and practice Graduate students preparing to take part in diversity training can set the stage for a successful learning experience by thinking about their own distinction as a part of a particular culture frame of thought can assist the student in to a consideration of areas of vulnerability as an individual and how this may transfer over into the helping relationship Tummala Narra 2009 The most important aspect to training that any graduate student should be considering is the fact that diversity training can cause the student to feel many emotions that he or she never considered before particularly the emotions tied to life experiences and how those exposures to circumstances envelope the individual that is present now While some of the discussion has been focused on the White graduate student coming to terms with the idea that diversity is a part of the paint that colors life it is important to recognize that any student of any race ethnicity culture or background can find that they too have not examined these aspects of life appropriately This is said to explain that while the discussion of diversity may be new to White students it is not completely lost on those from other diverse groups Diversity is a subject that requires thought and personal reflection and those activities are deserving of honest reflection and discovery Graduate students can engage in self reflection through activities like journal writing expressive arts or even social engagement with other students where thoughts and feelings can be shared It is important to note that university counseling centers offer support and assistance for students who desire a therapeutic approach to processing emotional and interpersonal concerns related to multiculturalism

  • Tips for Graduate Students Mentoring Undergraduate Students | Section 10, Division 12
    for mentoring undergraduates This can leave graduate students feeling unsure about how to best function in the role of mentor The following are a list of tips for graduate students mentoring undergraduate students 1 Reflect on your own experiences and identify information that would have proven useful to you at that time Thoughtfully consider these experiences in light of how they might be helpful to the individual mentee 2 Maintain regular contact with the mentee Scheduling regular meeting times responding to e mails in a timely fashion and encouraging the mentee to reach out during times of need can all be useful for maintaining contact The APA 2014 suggests prompting or encouraging the mentee to do the same 3 Set expectations for how the relationship will look Communicate to the mentee how quickly they can expect you to return their e mails dates you will be unavailable and other relevant information to ensure both the mentor and mentee are on the same page Communicate what is expected of the mentee 4 Discuss which roles the mentor will and will not fulfill and what will be expected of the mentee as the recipient Set objective goals for the relationship 5 Take a genuine interest in your mentee as an individual Taking the time to get to know your mentee on a personal level is essential to providing guidance in a way that meets their personal best interest 6 Seek out your own mentor Learning to be an effective mentor can also be learned by being a mentee yourself Do not be scared to ask for guidance or advice when mentoring undergraduates Graduate students are still in training themselves and should not be expected to have all the answers Due to the lack of formal training and oversight it is the responsibility
