Since 2000, psychologists Carol Williams-Nickelson, Mitchell Prinstein, and Gregory Keilin have presented a popular workshop—sponsored by the American Psychological Association of Graduate Students (APAGS)—that has helped countless psychology students navigate the complex internship application process. Due to popular demand, in 2004 the presenters compiled the various handouts and guidelines from these workshops in a handy workbook, Internships in Psychology: The APAGS Workbook for Writing Successful Applications and Finding the Right Fit. This book teaches students how to overcome their anxieties, select the right internship programs for them, write effective essays and cover letters, and prepare for interviews, among other things. The fourth edition of the workbook has been updated to reflect significant changes to the online application process. This new edition will be released in August and is available for preorder now.
You can also get a copy of Internships in Psychology at the authors’ annual workshop, which will be held during APA’s 2018 Convention at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, August 9–12. The workshop is scheduled for Thursday, August 9 from 2:00 to 3:50 p.m. in Room 3005 of Moscone Center’s West Building. On that same day, we will be holding a Q&A with the authors at 1:00 p.m. on the Author Stage in APA’s Bookstore in the South Building’s Exhibit Hall. You can register for the convention now and search the online convention program for more details.
We hope to see you there!
