This text offers new graduate students in the helping professions a guide for approaching their upcoming years of study. As a supplement to introductory courses, this book enables students to manage their personal and professional lives with practical advice and tools for making their graduate education as successful as possible. Rather than just providing a manual for graduate school, this book invites a reconceptualization of it. In this reconceptualization, personal engagement with, critical reflection on, and a thoroughgoing participation in the graduate program cultivate the skills that ultimately lead to more than just successful graduation; they lead to the creation of a lifelong learner who reflects the very goals and values that the filed seeks to promote. Throughout the text students are provided with practical advice and the necessary tools for a rewarding and fulfilling educational experience. (GCP)
