conducting a web survey that focuses on the mentoring experience of
graduate students in various areas of psychology, including counseling
psychology. The survey requires less than 5 minutes to complete, and is
designed for students, not faculty, to complete. We would appreciate

In attendance: Kay Herting Wahl, PhD; Sherri Turner, PhD; Kristin Williams, Kara Galvin, Jeff Walter, Aimee Arikian, Kim Zahm, MA

2nd year M.A. students asked about procedures for the upcoming NCE. Particularly, will transcripts indicating graduation be ready in time for those needing to register for the NCE by 6/2/06? It was suggested that if the transcript is not ready, visit the Registrar’s office and kindly request that they expedite your updated transcript if not already available. The NCE exam is 7/21/06 and registration is due on 6/2/06. If anyone has questions about the NCE, please contact Professor Wahl. She will be coming to Dr. Skohvolt’s practicum class to answer questions for those not currently in the school counseling track. The official email address of the BBHT is bbht@state.mn.us if you have specific questions for them.

No 1st year M.A. student or doctoral student concerns were raised.

Research Participation

Dear fellow Counseling Psychology student,

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Counseling Psychology at Fordham University under the direction of Dr. Eric C. Chen, and am conducting my dissertation research investigating variables that affect the supervisory relationship as seen through the eyes of the supervisee.

If you already completed the study, I thank you very much. If you have not had a chance to do so, I kindly ask you to consider it. You will be asked to answer questions about your current or most recent supervisory experience as a trainee with one particular supervisor, as well as answer a few questions about your experience in romantic relationships. You can access the informed consent form, demographic questionnaire and survey by clicking on the following link (or by copying and pasting the link into your browser): http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.asp?u=47771826264
THE GREAT NEWS IS THAT it takes on average only 15 minutes to complete the 4 surveys and demographic questionnaire, much less than I initially estimated!

As I promised, for each participant who completes the study, I will donate $2 (up to a maximum of $200) to the American Breast Cancer Society.

And one last thing, in case you are still reading: if you started the survey but did not complete it, you can go to the link from the computer at which you started filling it out, and it will take you to the page where you left off.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration. I would be more than glad to share the results of the study with you, so please feel free to contact me at kowalewska@fordham.edu

Sincerely,

Dorota Kowalewska
Ph.D. Candidate
Fordham University

Dear CSPP Doctoral Students:

Attached is information about a practicum at Mankato State University. It looks like an excellent training opportunity. There is a travel stipend to offset commuting costs. I do not know if their positions are filled for next year, so if you are interested, you might want to contact them to see about that before you go to the effort of applying. You also might want to hold onto this information for future years.
