Book Description

Dr. Newman has used his many years of experience working with interns and field supervisors to create this comprehensive guide to the school psychology internship. The second edition of this text includes updated research and tools, including a new job interview video, and new templates for developing a cover letter, CV, and remediation plan. Expanded content includes brand new chapters focused on applying for doctoral internships through the APPIC Match process, and successfully transitioning from the internship into the early career.

Students and internship supervisors alike will find this easy-to-use guide helpful in alleviating anxiety around common internship concerns. Emphasis is placed on the idea that the internship year is a dynamic and formative experience, not a static event, and that interns and supervisors both must be proactive planners, coordinators, and shapers of the experience. Interns and supervisors will find this guide to be a critical support for planning and enacting a high-quality school psychology internship.
