PhD Student Info

If you are applying for a pre-doctoral internship this Fall 2009 for the 2010-2011 academic year, this message has TWO important announcements for you:

FIRST: Please email me (Michael Goh at gohxx001@umn.edu to let me know that you intend to apply so that I can forward important news/emails and timelines for the APPIC application.

SECOND: Please note two vital listservs below that I recommend subscribing to and take the necessary action to get on the lists right away.

Thanks and I look forward to working with you towards a successful internship application process. Michael.


THE MATCH-NEWS E-MAIL LIST

MATCH-NEWS is a FREE e-mail list provided by APPIC as a service to Match participants. It is VERY STRONGLY recommended that all internship applicants (as well as academic and internship Training Directors) subscribe to this list as early as possible in the process (i.e., subscribe NOW if you plan to apply for internship in the Fall of 2009). MATCH-NEWS is an "announce-only" list, which means that only APPIC can post messages to the list. The volume of e-mail messages will generally be very small, usually ranging from zero to five messages per month. As the Match approaches, the MATCH-NEWS list will be the primary method of communicating important late-breaking news and information about the Match, as well as tips and suggestions about how to make the most of the process. Many applicants from previous years have told us that the messages posted to MATCH-NEWS were extremely helpful to them in navigating the selection process.

NOTE: If you previously signed up for the MATCH-NEWS list, there is no need to do so again.

To subscribe to the MATCH-NEWS list, send a blank e-mail message to the following address:

subscribe-match-news@lyris.appic.org

You will subsequently receive an e-mail message (with the subject line, "Your confirmation needed") that contains instructions for you to follow in order to confirm your subscription. Simply follow the instructions in that message, and you will soon receive a "Welcome"
e-mail in response. This "Welcome" e-mail confirms that you are successfully subscribed to the list (please note that you are NOT subscribed to the list until you have received the "Welcome" message).

PLEASE NOTE: If your e-mail program uses "Spam" or "Junk Mail"
filtering, it is possible that the confirmation message from the APPIC server will be automatically redirected to your "Junk Mail"
folder without your knowledge. If you do not receive a confirmation message in your "In" box, you should check your "Spam" or "Junk Mail"
folder to see if the message is there.

-----

THE INTERN-NETWORK E-MAIL LIST

APPIC also maintains a separate e-mail list, called INTERN-NETWORK, which is a discussion list for internship applicants. This list is optional for applicants, though many find it useful. Applicants can use this list to discuss various aspects of the selection process or to ask questions about the AAPI, interviews, Match, etc. Since this list can generate considerable discussion at times, and thus considerable e-mail, subscribers may wish to use the list's "Digest" mode in order to keep e-mail to a minimum (see www.appic.org, click on "E-mail Lists," then on "Intern-Network" for more info about Digest mode). To subscribe to the INTERN-NETWORK list, send a blank e-mail message to: subscribe-intern-network@lyris.appic.org and follow the confirmation instructions as described above for the MATCH-NEWS list.

-----

MORE INFORMATION

For general information about the APPIC Match, see: http://www.appic.org/ and click on "About the Match" and "Frequently Asked Questions." General information is also available at the matching program web
site: http://www.natmatch.com/psychint

by clicking the links in the "Overview" and "Match Process" sections.

For complete information about all of APPIC's e-mail lists, see www.appic.org and click on "E-mail Lists."

If you have any questions about these lists or about the APPIC Match in general, you may contact Dr. Greg Keilin at gkeilin@mail.utexas.edu or (512) 475-6949.

MATCH NEWS: Internship Workshops at APA Convention

APPIC MATCH NEWS
---
Mark your calendar! APAGS and APPIC will present two workshops on the internship application process at the APA Convention in San Francisco in August. Both of these workshops are designed to assist the prospective internship applicant in understanding and navigating the selection process.

APAGS also offers an internship workbook that is included with the APAGS pre-convention workshop or that may be ordered separately.
Please note that the APAGS pre-convention workshop requires a separate registration process and fee.

Below is more information about each workshop.

============================================================================
=

APAGS 2007 PRE-CONVENTION INTERNSHIP WORKSHOP

Date: Thursday, August 16, 4:00pm - 8:00pm
Location: Hilton San Francisco, Continental Ballroom 5

The APAGS Internship Workshop will offer students tips on finding a psychology internship and guidance on the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC) application and Match process. Discussion will include various aspects of the application process such as developing a healthy mindset, understanding APPIC's role and APA Accreditation, calculating hours, completing the APPIC application, composing and designing a CV, asking for and evaluating recommendation letters, identifying training and career goals-and translating that information into compelling personal essays, interviewing, constructing a rank ordered list for the Match, and using the clearinghouse if necessary.

The registration fee for this special workshop includes a copy of the APAGS Internship Workbook, "Internships in Psychology: The APAGS Workbook for Writing Successful Applications and Finding the Right Match" (Williams-Nickelson & Prinstein, Eds) published by APA. This workbook is updated regularly and was originally written to augment this workshop.

Presenters:
Carol Williams-Nickelson, PsyD, APA, APAGS
Mitchell Prinstein, PhD, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
Greg Keilin, PhD, University of Texas at Austin, APPIC Past Chair and
Match Coordinator

The deadline for receiving a discounted registration fee ($25 for APAGS members, $30 for non-APAGS members) is July 23, 2007. After July 23rd, the registration fee increases to $30 for APAGS members and $35 for non-APAGS members. Please note that the registration fee for this pre-convention workshop is separate from your APA Convention registration.

A registration form is available at:

http://www.apa.org/apags/convention/intwkpapp.pdf

MEET THE DECISION-MAKERS: INTERNSHIP PANEL AND SOCIAL

Friday, August 17, 10:00am - 11:50am
Location - San Francisco Marriott, Yerba Buena Salon 7

Students have many questions and even some misconceptions about what makes a student an attractive candidate to internship training directors. Students often find that while there are some commonalities in attributes that are valued by training directors, some skills and characteristics are more important than others depending on the type of site to which a student applies. This internship panel and social hour provides an opportunity for graduate students to get their questions answered directly from training directors from various types of sites. The panel will provide another chance outside of the APAGS Pre-Convention Internship Workshop for students to obtain information about the internship process and ask questions germane to specific types of sites and training director styles. In the first hour of this two-hour program, our panel of internship directors, current APPIC Chair, and current APAGS Member-at-Large Education, will present general information about internships and answer student questions. Students are asked to bring questions with them to the panel. Although the first hour will not focus on specific site requirements, the second hour - a social hour for which every internship director listed in the APPIC directory has been invited - will give students the chance to mingle with training directors situated throughout the room in designated areas, to gather information about specific sites.

Presenters:
Brian Hall, MA, APAGS Convention Committee Incoming Chair (Chair)
Ruth Lieu, MBA, APAGS Convention Committee (Co-Chair)
Greg Keilin, PhD, The University of Texas at Austin
Nadine Kaslow, PhD, Emory University School of Medicine
Steven McCutcheon, PhD, Chair, APPIC Board of Directors

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.

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.

By the end of this week there will be updated information about the advanced practicum at Carleton College available in the practicum handbook. The staff at Carelton’s Wellness Center are eager for CSPP students to apply. A number of our students have been there in the past, or are there at present, and they have had very positive experiences.

Carelton is about a 35-45 minute drive from the Twin Cities, but the practicum comes with a stipend of $1,500to compensate for mileage (not bad, unless you are driving a Hummer).

Please consider applying for next year and note that the application is February 15th—earlier than in previous years.

Dear CSPP doctoral students:

Greetings!

CSPP faculty and staff would like to continue to provide a way for students to regularly share their concerns, ideas, and other feedback. One way this kind of dialogue between students and faculty has taken place is by the election of student representatives. This year we would have 2 student representatives for each of the following cohort: the 1st year MA. cohort, the 2nd year M.A. cohort, and the Ph.D cohort. As it is almost an impossible task to get all doctoral students together, the election will be conducted via emails. Please think about people who you would like to nominate (self-nomination is also accepted), and email your nominations to me by next Wednesday 5:00 p.m.. Please also refer to the paragraphs below for the duties of student representatives.

Thank you very much!

Juihsien Kao

Duties of CSPP Student Representatives:

Student representatives attend and participate in Student and Faculty Representative meetings. Although these meetings are public, and open to all students and faculty, it is the responsibility of the representatives to attend. Meetings are typically held once every two weeks during the academic year. Scheduling of the meetings will be done to accommodate as much as possible representatives schedules.

The primary duties of student representatives include bringing information from the faculty group to all graduate students, and bringing concerns and ideas to the faculty group as appropriate. The job of the student representatives will be to meet with Dr. Turner and Dr. Wahl to help formulate activities, provide consultation to the faculty group on broader issues, and represent student viewpoints on appropriate issues.

Primary issues of discussion during these Representative meetings are: What do the CSPP graduate students need on a programmatic level in order to function more effectively; and what do students need on a programmatic level in order to better meet their educational and career goals. Issues that pertain to individual classes and/or faculty members will not be handled or discussed in these meetings or by student representatives.

PhD Student Info

If you are applying for a pre-doctoral internship this Fall 2009 for the 2010-2011 academic year, this message has TWO important announcements for you:

FIRST: Please email me (Michael Goh at gohxx001@umn.edu to let me know that you intend to apply so that I can forward important news/emails and timelines for the APPIC application.

SECOND: Please note two vital listservs below that I recommend subscribing to and take the necessary action to get on the lists right away.

Thanks and I look forward to working with you towards a successful internship application process. Michael.


THE MATCH-NEWS E-MAIL LIST

MATCH-NEWS is a FREE e-mail list provided by APPIC as a service to Match participants. It is VERY STRONGLY recommended that all internship applicants (as well as academic and internship Training Directors) subscribe to this list as early as possible in the process (i.e., subscribe NOW if you plan to apply for internship in the Fall of 2009). MATCH-NEWS is an "announce-only" list, which means that only APPIC can post messages to the list. The volume of e-mail messages will generally be very small, usually ranging from zero to five messages per month. As the Match approaches, the MATCH-NEWS list will be the primary method of communicating important late-breaking news and information about the Match, as well as tips and suggestions about how to make the most of the process. Many applicants from previous years have told us that the messages posted to MATCH-NEWS were extremely helpful to them in navigating the selection process.

NOTE: If you previously signed up for the MATCH-NEWS list, there is no need to do so again.

To subscribe to the MATCH-NEWS list, send a blank e-mail message to the following address:

subscribe-match-news@lyris.appic.org

You will subsequently receive an e-mail message (with the subject line, "Your confirmation needed") that contains instructions for you to follow in order to confirm your subscription. Simply follow the instructions in that message, and you will soon receive a "Welcome"
e-mail in response. This "Welcome" e-mail confirms that you are successfully subscribed to the list (please note that you are NOT subscribed to the list until you have received the "Welcome" message).

PLEASE NOTE: If your e-mail program uses "Spam" or "Junk Mail"
filtering, it is possible that the confirmation message from the APPIC server will be automatically redirected to your "Junk Mail"
folder without your knowledge. If you do not receive a confirmation message in your "In" box, you should check your "Spam" or "Junk Mail"
folder to see if the message is there.

-----

THE INTERN-NETWORK E-MAIL LIST

APPIC also maintains a separate e-mail list, called INTERN-NETWORK, which is a discussion list for internship applicants. This list is optional for applicants, though many find it useful. Applicants can use this list to discuss various aspects of the selection process or to ask questions about the AAPI, interviews, Match, etc. Since this list can generate considerable discussion at times, and thus considerable e-mail, subscribers may wish to use the list's "Digest" mode in order to keep e-mail to a minimum (see www.appic.org, click on "E-mail Lists," then on "Intern-Network" for more info about Digest mode). To subscribe to the INTERN-NETWORK list, send a blank e-mail message to: subscribe-intern-network@lyris.appic.org and follow the confirmation instructions as described above for the MATCH-NEWS list.

-----

MORE INFORMATION

For general information about the APPIC Match, see: http://www.appic.org/ and click on "About the Match" and "Frequently Asked Questions." General information is also available at the matching program web
site: http://www.natmatch.com/psychint

by clicking the links in the "Overview" and "Match Process" sections.

For complete information about all of APPIC's e-mail lists, see www.appic.org and click on "E-mail Lists."

If you have any questions about these lists or about the APPIC Match in general, you may contact Dr. Greg Keilin at gkeilin@mail.utexas.edu or (512) 475-6949.

MATCH NEWS: Internship Workshops at APA Convention

APPIC MATCH NEWS
---
Mark your calendar! APAGS and APPIC will present two workshops on the internship application process at the APA Convention in San Francisco in August. Both of these workshops are designed to assist the prospective internship applicant in understanding and navigating the selection process.

APAGS also offers an internship workbook that is included with the APAGS pre-convention workshop or that may be ordered separately.
Please note that the APAGS pre-convention workshop requires a separate registration process and fee.

Below is more information about each workshop.

============================================================================
=

APAGS 2007 PRE-CONVENTION INTERNSHIP WORKSHOP

Date: Thursday, August 16, 4:00pm - 8:00pm
Location: Hilton San Francisco, Continental Ballroom 5

The APAGS Internship Workshop will offer students tips on finding a psychology internship and guidance on the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC) application and Match process. Discussion will include various aspects of the application process such as developing a healthy mindset, understanding APPIC's role and APA Accreditation, calculating hours, completing the APPIC application, composing and designing a CV, asking for and evaluating recommendation letters, identifying training and career goals-and translating that information into compelling personal essays, interviewing, constructing a rank ordered list for the Match, and using the clearinghouse if necessary.

The registration fee for this special workshop includes a copy of the APAGS Internship Workbook, "Internships in Psychology: The APAGS Workbook for Writing Successful Applications and Finding the Right Match" (Williams-Nickelson & Prinstein, Eds) published by APA. This workbook is updated regularly and was originally written to augment this workshop.

Presenters:
Carol Williams-Nickelson, PsyD, APA, APAGS
Mitchell Prinstein, PhD, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
Greg Keilin, PhD, University of Texas at Austin, APPIC Past Chair and
Match Coordinator

The deadline for receiving a discounted registration fee ($25 for APAGS members, $30 for non-APAGS members) is July 23, 2007. After July 23rd, the registration fee increases to $30 for APAGS members and $35 for non-APAGS members. Please note that the registration fee for this pre-convention workshop is separate from your APA Convention registration.

A registration form is available at:

http://www.apa.org/apags/convention/intwkpapp.pdf

MEET THE DECISION-MAKERS: INTERNSHIP PANEL AND SOCIAL

Friday, August 17, 10:00am - 11:50am
Location - San Francisco Marriott, Yerba Buena Salon 7

Students have many questions and even some misconceptions about what makes a student an attractive candidate to internship training directors. Students often find that while there are some commonalities in attributes that are valued by training directors, some skills and characteristics are more important than others depending on the type of site to which a student applies. This internship panel and social hour provides an opportunity for graduate students to get their questions answered directly from training directors from various types of sites. The panel will provide another chance outside of the APAGS Pre-Convention Internship Workshop for students to obtain information about the internship process and ask questions germane to specific types of sites and training director styles. In the first hour of this two-hour program, our panel of internship directors, current APPIC Chair, and current APAGS Member-at-Large Education, will present general information about internships and answer student questions. Students are asked to bring questions with them to the panel. Although the first hour will not focus on specific site requirements, the second hour - a social hour for which every internship director listed in the APPIC directory has been invited - will give students the chance to mingle with training directors situated throughout the room in designated areas, to gather information about specific sites.

Presenters:
Brian Hall, MA, APAGS Convention Committee Incoming Chair (Chair)
Ruth Lieu, MBA, APAGS Convention Committee (Co-Chair)
Greg Keilin, PhD, The University of Texas at Austin
Nadine Kaslow, PhD, Emory University School of Medicine
Steven McCutcheon, PhD, Chair, APPIC Board of Directors

TO: CSPP Doctoral 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.

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.

Dear CSPP Doctoral Students:

By the end of this week there will be updated information about the advanced practicum at Carleton College available in the practicum handbook. The staff at Carelton’s Wellness Center are eager for CSPP students to apply. A number of our students have been there in the past, or are there at present, and they have had very positive experiences.

Carelton is about a 35-45 minute drive from the Twin Cities, but the practicum comes with a stipend of $1,500to compensate for mileage (not bad, unless you are driving a Hummer).

Please consider applying for next year and note that the application is February 15th—earlier than in previous years.

Announcing a New Opportunity for Postdoctoral Training:
The UVA Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Fellowship Program in Education Sciences

The University of Virginia Center for Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning (CASTL), a new interdisciplinary research center in education science, has received an award from the Institute of Education Sciences of the Department of Education to implement a Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.

Program Description:

Fellows will be involved in a set of rich research and career development opportunities that include a primary research rotation in a major area of work with the Robert Pianta, Program Director, or other key faculty members, as well as a secondary rotation with affiliated faculty. The primary research training rotation of Fellows immerses them in funded projects within CASTL, among which include five randomized evaluation trials, quasi-experimental studies on large scale data bases of state and national significance, planned comparison evaluations, and natural history studies. These projects are organized in programs of research focused on early childhood/elementary classroom quality and intervention effects, teacher workforce quality and effects, and schooling experiences in relation to other developmental influences.

Fellows have the opportunity for research training across disciplines and will be expected to fill leadership roles that include all aspects of manuscript preparation, presentations at scientific meetings, research design and implementation, and grant-writing. Training emphasizes Fellows' immersion in programs of methodologically rigorous research providing opportunities to develop a range of skills focused on an area of educational significance and gain a coherent view of the accumulation of knowledge through sustained research programs. The work with affiliated faculty in secondary rotations also draws into education sciences the expertise of faculty from across the University, including the Departments of Psychology, Economics, and Sociology.

Dear CSPP doctoral students:

Greetings!

CSPP faculty and staff would like to continue to provide a way for students to regularly share their concerns, ideas, and other feedback. One way this kind of dialogue between students and faculty has taken place is by the election of student representatives. This year we would have 2 student representatives for each of the following cohort: the 1st year MA. cohort, the 2nd year M.A. cohort, and the Ph.D cohort. As it is almost an impossible task to get all doctoral students together, the election will be conducted via emails. Please think about people who you would like to nominate (self-nomination is also accepted), and email your nominations to me by next Wednesday 5:00 p.m.. Please also refer to the paragraphs below for the duties of student representatives.

Thank you very much!

Duties of CSPP Student Representatives:

Student representatives attend and participate in Student and Faculty Representative meetings. Although these meetings are public, and open to all students and faculty, it is the responsibility of the representatives to attend. Meetings are typically held once every two weeks during the academic year. Scheduling of the meetings will be done to accommodate as much as possible representatives schedules.

The primary duties of student representatives include bringing information from the faculty group to all graduate students, and bringing concerns and ideas to the faculty group as appropriate. The job of the student representatives will be to meet with Dr. Turner and Dr. Wahl to help formulate activities, provide consultation to the faculty group on broader issues, and represent student viewpoints on appropriate issues.

Primary issues of discussion during these Representative meetings are: What do the CSPP graduate students need on a programmatic level in order to function more effectively; and what do students need on a programmatic level in order to better meet their educational and career goals. Issues that pertain to individual classes and/or faculty members will not be handled or discussed in these meetings or by student representatives.
