Written for students and early career psychologists, The Portable Mentor, Second Edition is a professional development handbook with practical guidelines and suggestions for mastering virtually every professional task encountered during the first decade of a career in psychology. Fully updated and expanded from the first edition this volume covers a wider range of topics and some completely new chapters featuring more detailed information on how and when to apply for graduate school. Comprehensive in scope, but practical in use, The Portable Mentor offers the best possible training from the most successful leaders in psychology, combining the wisdom and mentorship of noted psychology experts into a single source.Praise for the first edition:"What a great idea for a book! Edited by two former chairs of the American Psychological Association of Graduate Students (APAGS), this book covers, in a comprehensive fashion, everything about graduate school and career planning a psychologist in training usually learns by word-of-mouth! It's about time someone compiled this crucial information. Whether one is headed for a research or a clinical career, all of the practical steps to get there are included. And, "The Portable Mentor" is an apt description. Every graduate student and young professional will want to have this book readily available." - David H. Barlow, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Research Professor of Psychiatry, Director of Clinical Programs, and Director of the Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders at Boston University"Prinstein and Patterson have recruited a veritable who's who of psychology to provide us a well-written, scholarly, and comprehensive guide to a successful career in psychology. The volume is filled with critical commentary and issues confronting clinical psychology and with practical and well-reasoned advice on how to negotiate many of the muddy and troubled waters that characterize our field of study in the new millennium. I wish I'd had such a book in my "back pocket" upon my graduation some years ago!" - Thomas H. Ollendick, Ph.D., University Distinguished Professor, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University"In diverse chapters by active and leading experts, "The Portable Mentor" provides insightful commentaries and bullet-lists of ideas to facilitate early career advancement in psychology. Want to review a research literature, arrange a positive teaching experience, navigate a dissertation? Or perhaps your questions concern practica, internship, licensure, private practice, or board certification or ethics, or being active in service organizations, or even balancing a career and a family. For any and all, and more, "The Portable Mentor" provides pathways to a productive early career. And for those already into their career, advice on how to be a good mentor to our future. Indeed, for psychologists at countless points in their careers, "The Portable Mentor" is a very worthwhile read." - Philip C. Kendall, Ph.D., ABPP, Laura H. Carnell Professor of Psychology, Temple University
