Professional "Mentoring" of Doctoral Practicum Students: An Emerging Supervisory Paradigm.
Tentoni, Stuart C.; And Others
Four papers from a panel discussion on the topic of doctoral practicum counseling students are presented in this document. The first paper "Professional 'Mentoring' of Doctoral Practicum Students: An Emerging Supervisory Paradigm" by Stuart C. Tentoni describes the author's academic training and experience which relate to the desire to become a mentor. The second paper "'Mentoring' Versus Traditional Models of Supervision: Doctoral Trainee Perspective" by Michael A. McCrea describes his experiences in placement experiences as a clinical psychologist trainee, focusing on the type of supervision. The third paper "Mentoring: A Professional Approach to Supervision" by Catherine G. Thomas describes her experiences in a co-counseling relationship, a mentoring style of practicum experience. She concludes that mentoring was exactly the supervisory relationship that she needed to finish her educational experience feeling more prepared for the professional world. The fourth paper "Professional Mentoring of Doctoral Practicum Students: An Emerging Supervisory Paradigm" by Richard N. Shulik presents the author's reactions to the previously presented material. He concludes with questions about the mentoring paradigm: how does one develop or improve mentoring skills and what does the mentoring paradigm offer to the graduate student who cannot be mentored or does not wish to pursue that type of supervisory experience.
