gradPSYCH Blog creates community for graduate students in psychology

The American Psychological Association of Graduate Students blog, written for graduate students — and often by graduate students — provides a friendly space to learn and share information.

gradPSYCH Blog creates community for graduate students in psychologyProviding “food for thought for psychology students,” gradPSYCH Blog is the newest venture into social media from the American Psychological Association of Graduate Students (APAGS). Launched in late 2013, it provides a space for graduate students in psychology to sound off through guest columns and comments as well as get information on psychology education and training, advocacy, leadership opportunities, self-care, mentoring and more. Recognizing the need for students to take a break from the hustle and bustle of graduate school, the blog also offers a “laugh of the week” and other, more informal posts.

Popular on the blog is a quick primer on interviewing for a psychology internship from Mitch Prinstein, PhD, co-author of the APAGS internship workbook “Internships in Psychology.”

All graduate students are encouraged to join the blog community to share their struggles, successes, survival tips and other thoughts. APAGS also welcomes guest contributions from students to help showcase their writing skills, provide useful information for other psychology students, receive broad exposure as well as get feedback on their articles through comments from their peers.
