TO: CSPP M.A. Students

FROM: Pat McCarthy Veach, Coordinator

RE: Annual Review of Student Progress

Each academic year, the CSPP faculty reviews the progress of each student in the program. The attached questionnaire is designed to summarize your CSPP-related activities during the past year in addition to asking about your projected plans for next year. After the review takes place, you will be notified by letter about the outcome.

It is very important that we receive these forms back from each CSPP M.A. student (EVEN IF YOU ARE GRADUATING THIS SPRING). The anonymous survey asking about the CSPP program should be handed in separately. Please print and complete the forms. Return them and an unofficial copy of your graduate transcript to 206 Burton by noon on Friday, April 7th. If you have difficulty printing this form, there are hard copies available in 206 Burton. Failure to complete this form by the deadline noted above will result in a hold being placed on your fall registration.

If you have questions regarding the forms or the review process, please consult your advisor. Thank you in advance for your timely completion of these forms. Your opinion really does matter.

TO: CSPP Doctoral Students

RE: Annual Review of Student Progress

Each academic year, the CSPP faculty reviews the progress of each student in the program. The attached questionnaire is designed to summarize your CSPP-related activities during the past year in addition to asking about your projected plans for next year. After the review takes place, you will be notified by letter about the outcome.

Please note that the attached questionnaire serves two purposes. First, it provides a summary of information needed for the faculty's annual review of student progress. Second, it is our means of collecting the information that the American Psychological Association (APA) requires from each training program it accredits. Therefore, it is very important that you complete all parts of the form (EVEN IF YOU ARE GRADUATING THIS SPRING OR GRADUATED SOMETIME DURING THE YEAR).

Please print and complete the forms. Return them and an unofficial copy of your graduate transcript to 206 Burton by noon on Friday, April 7th. Failure to complete this form by the deadline noted in the cover letter will result in a hold being placed on your fall registration. The anonymous survey asking about the CSPP Program should be handed in separately. If you have difficulty printing this form, there are hard copies available in 206 Burton.

If you have any questions regarding the forms or the review process, please consult your advisor. Thank you for your cooperation in providing complete information about your training and professional experiences while in the CSPP program.

Research Participation

Counseling Psychology Graduate Student,

Please disregard this e-mail if you have already participated in my study.

I know that you must receive dozens of requests to help out fellow students with their research efforts, here is one more! The aim of my investigation is to ascertain the state of training in our field regarding the frequency in which spiritual issues are being addressed during individual supervision of graduate students.

I have created a Web-based survey to assess these areas, which should only take about 15 to 20 minutes of your time. I simply request that you click on the following link to access and complete the survey. If at any time you have questions, concerns, or feel any distress while completing the survey, please contact either myself or my dissertation chair, Dr. Steven Brown. It may entice you to learn that I am offering two $40 gift certificates to to randomly selected participants once the data collection process is finished (if you choose to enter). THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!

Student Rep Minutes

Student Representative Meeting Minutes
CSPP 2006
From: Aimee J. Arikian
Re: 3/20/2006 Meeting Minutes
In Attendance: Aimee Arikian, Kara Galvin, Kay Herting-Wahl, PhD, Sherri Turner, PhD, Jeff Walter, Kristin Williams, and Kim Zahm, MA

PhD student concerns:
 Since there is an option to choose either qualitative or quantitative research programs as a PhD student, might the Evaluation Class (EPsy 5243) and a Qualitative Course be interchangeable?
Answer: Probably not an even trade off but faculty representatives to ask in the next faculty mtg.

2nd Year MA student concerns:
 Like the current 1st years are looking into improving the mentor program for future 1st years, Aimee to check in with Juihsien re: PhD upperclassman/peer mentors. Kim also to get a reading from PhD students of whether this would be helpful.

1st Year MA student concerns:
 How strict is the due date for the Degree Program Forms?
Answer: If you haven’t turned them in by now (due on 3/21) then do so as soon as possible. The main point behind getting these forms completed is that Grad. School will not let you register for classes next term unless these forms are in and completed. 2 forms:
1. Exam Committee Consent (found on the blog if you scroll down to “Submitting Degree Programs?)
2. Degree Program Form (

 Somehow the posting for the Summer Child and Adolescent Class (EPsy 5415) displayed the incorrect times before. This class will be held from 1:25-5:25pm, Mon-Fri (5/22 - 6/9/2006).

John Krumboltz (3/29):
 John Krumboltz is a CSPP Grad and has as great expertise in career development, has devoted his own career to these life enhancing pursuits and is an author of "Planned Happenstance Theory."
 Wed. March 29th there will be an award ceremony from 3-5 pm at the McNamara Center – Johnson Hall. Please come to meet him!!! And notify Mary Farquar ASAP if you would like to come.

Space Committee update:
 In process still. Dr. Goh brought in a presentation on the observation lab and it looks fabulous!

 It is not too late to apply for the Sunny Hansen Born Free Fund Award! The BORN FREE Scholarship of $1,000 will be awarded to a graduate student who is working in the field of career development through CSPP. Check it out:
 Others can be found on the Ed. Psych web-site: (note: scroll down to “Graduate Students? (MA, SC, PhD, and EdD):

Status in Training Forms (due 4/7):
 All 1st & 2nd year students need to complete these. Deirdre sent an e-mail with them as attachments on 3/20. Please rreturn them and an unofficial copy of your graduate transcript to 206 Burton by noon on Friday, April 7th.

External Review Luncheon (4/20):
 April 20th luncheon from 12:30-1pm. The Graduate School will be reviewing our Program and they want to hear from US, the students! Only approx. 6 students can attend, so RSVP to Deirdre (612.624.6827) / to let her know you are interested and a representative group of students will be chosen from among those students who express their interest in attending the luncheon and talking to the external reviewers.

MA Comprehensive Exam is coming (4/22):
 April 22nd from 9am – 1pm in Burton 120. Please watch your e-mail for further information.

Commencement Reception (5/12):
 For graduating MA students: A reception in the Burton Atrium will be held following the graduation ceremonies. Please feel free to invite your families and friends, including current students in the program!

 Some of the 2nd year classmates seem to be finding jobs and are excited about the coming year. We are proud of you and wish those of us still searching and in midst of grad school, “Good Luck!?

Dear Editorial Board Members,

I am not sure I will be able to attend the conference as I am in Zimbabwe working at the USA Centers for Disease Control Zimbabwe office. Please accept my apologies if you do not see me at the meeting.

One of the things I am doing at CDC is working towards the capacity building of the National Guidance and Counseling Association of Zimbabwe (NGCAZ) in relation to HIV/AIDS. Though the focus is on HIV counseling and education, some general areas of interest of the building process are: supervision, the importance of ethics, professionalism in general, advocacy (counselors in Zimbabwe have no professional recognition), basic counseling skill building (most counselors in Zimbabwe have 2-3 weeks training), development of constitution/by-laws, monitoring and evaluation, and building of resources. Though the project will be carried out in the school setting, by building the capacity of the association all counselors in Zimbabwe will benefit. The reason why I am mentioning this is I am hoping to build some bonds between ACA and NGCAZ. Perhaps you know of some counseling students professionals that might like to be part of the NGCAZ capacity building process? It would be a great opportunity for PhD students interested in leadership internship hours.

Research Assistance

The Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) is inviting proposals for the Summer 2006 semester for two of it’s Community Based research programs: Neighborhood Planning for Community Revitalization (NPCR) and the Community Assistantship Program (CAP).

CURA Community Based Research Programs provide applied research assistance to community-based groups located outside of the Twin Cities area, neighborhood groups within the metro area, and other nonprofit agencies and groups. This research is administered by three separate programs: the Community Assistantship Program (CAP), which works with groups in greater Minnesota; Neighborhood Planning for Community Revitalization (NPCR), which works with neighborhood organizations in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and first-ring suburbs; and Communiversity, which works with nonprofit organizations, particularly those serving communities of color (NOTE: Communiversity does not have a summer round of projects). These community research projects typically place students in part-time research assistantships for one semester or over the summer. Students are selected by and report to the community organization. Organizations define and direct their research projects.

The goals of these programs are to:

1) enhance the capacity of community-based groups in Minnesota to meet their goals by giving them an opportunity to accomplish relevant applied research; and

2) provide students and faculty with useful community-based applied research and learning opportunities.

See below for more information on NPCR and CAP. Applications should come directly from community organizations. The deadline for project proposals is March 30th, 2006. Approved projects will run from May 29th to August 28th, 2006. Please follow the link below to find out more or to apply on-line.
