- Why are you interested in training psychology students?
By seeking this type of education, individuals are choosing to make a change in their lives and open themselves to a very special experience. Training in psychology is often transformational in people’s lives as they gain knowledge and skills as well as expand their worldviews and senses of self. Students are not only developing their professional identities but also determining how they wish to contribute to making a difference in other people’s lives as they pursue a career with a sense of meaning and purpose. I appreciate the opportunity to contribute to building a foundation for future psychologists.
- What do you think is important for students to keep in mind as they pursue training experiences?
I encourage students to view their training experiences as a means of growth and to grant themselves permission to step outside of their comfort zones. I believe every experience has the potential to be helpful, even if it is the discovery that a type of setting, intervention, or style of interaction is not a good match for you. I suggest that students maintain flexibility as they approach training, foster a positive, encouraging inner dialogue with themselves, and reach out to others when needed. Over time, it is helpful to gain a sense of your strengths and what makes you unique, which includes aspects of personal identity, character, values, and life experience.
