Local Training Evaluation: Some but Not Enough.
Rickard, Henry C.
This paper reviews the evaluation studies conducted by the University of Alabama clinical training program in psychology over more than 10 years. Four program areas which were evaluated during these years are described: teaching, research, training issues, and clinical administration. The research apprenticeship emphasis in Alabama's psychology program is noted, and results of a 1982 survey of 75 clinical graduate students, undertaken to measure the research program's outcomes, are provided. The programs and courses developed to meet the needs of graduates who found positions for which they had little entry level training in teaching or in management/administration are described, and the evaluations related to those programs are discussed. The clinical training studies which were conducted to evaluate the interview process for selecting graduate sutdents, and to develop a manual for the university psychological clinic are summarized. Finally, the use of longitudinal studies and cooperative cross-sectional evaluations involving several clinical training programs is suggested. (MCF)
