Creating a Culture of Mentoring: Recommendations for Graduate Programs.
Johnson, W. Brad
Although the traditional mentoring paradigm in graduate schools is that of a single faculty-student dyad working intensively on scholarly and research endeavors, contemporary training models in professional psychology require new approaches to mentoring. Graduate programs must tailor mentoring to meet their missions and cultures. The vertical team model is one promising medium for mentoring in large professional programs. In this model, faculty lead research-oriented or clinically-oriented weekly team meetings for the purpose of teaching, modeling, and supervising student research or clinical work in the faculty member's area of expertise. Students then select teams based on shared interests. These faculty members then become the student's program advisor. In this way even programs with large student numbers can facilitate faculty-student matching and mentoring formation. (Contains 14 references.) (JDM)
