Across the many settings in which we work, Psychologists face a challenging job landscape. Emerging into the workforce following our training, we are equipped with many of the skills needed to be effective healthcare and industry leaders. Among many other skills, We have strong analytic ability, the skill to navigate emotionally challenging situations, the ability to integrate feedback and understand systems. However, many of us lack formal leadership training and a framework or philosophy. This program is here to help!
The KPA graduate student mentorship program launched in the Spring of 2021. The program aims to match graduate students with undergraduate or post-bac students interested in pursuing advanced degrees in psychology. This program will support increased diversity in program applicants while helping graduate students develop mentorship and leadership skills. We also see immense value in connecting students from across various experience levels and regions of Kentucky as we move into an increasingly virtual space.
