Respecialization Training in the Psychology Department Clinic.
Halgin, Richard P.
This program description, written for psychology curriculum developers and faculty, addresses the design, problems, and benefits of incorporating a respecialization course of study into the existing psychology clincial training program at the University of Massachusetts. An example of the individualized curriculum designed to meet the clinical and theoretical program requirements over a 2-year, part-time period, is presented. Financial issues are presented next, both in regard to tuition costs and methods for returning the tuition monies directly to the program. A description of the program's applicants follows, with a rationale for selection criteria. The paper concludes with a review of the benefits and problems that respecialization has presented to both the clinical program and the respecialization student, e.g., enrichment, competition for limited resources, financial costs, and professional identity.
