Your Graduate Training in Psychology takes current and upcoming graduate students beyond the typical concerns of enrolling into graduate school and guides them on how to complete graduate school successfully. Unlike other books that focus on how to get into graduate school, this book directly addresses the major issues that students confront during their graduate training in psychology. A carefully selected cadre of expert authors in their respective areas illuminate the broad range of processes, practices, and procedural issues that face graduate students in both masters and doctoral programs. Ordered chronologically, from the first year of graduate school (Settling In) to what students need to know as they finish (Winding Down and Gearing Up), students will learn the key skills needed to succeed in all aspects of their academic and professional careers while in school and after beginning a professional career.

The Handbook is designed to help psychology educators at each stage of their careers, from teaching their first courses and developing their careers to serving as department or program administrators. The goal of the Handbook is to provide teachers, educators, researchers, scholars, and administrators in psychology with current, practical advice on course creation, best practices in psychology pedagogy, course content recommendations, teaching methods and classroom management strategies, advice on student advising, and administrative and professional issues, such as managing one's career, chairing the department, organizing the curriculum, and conducting assessment, among other topics. The primary audience for this Handbook is college and university-level psychology teachers (at both two and four-year institutions) at the assistant, associate, and full professor levels, as well as department chairs and other psychology program administrators, who want to improve teaching and learning within their departments. Faculty members in other social science disciplines (e.g., sociology, education, political science) will find material in the Handbook to be applicable or adaptable to their own programs and courses.
