We also have hand-selected several bloggers to share their graduate school experiences with you. Our bloggers include current graduate students, a post doc and fellow, and an academic consultant to provide you with diverse perspectives from across the graduate school spectrum.
The PhD forums are another free resource we came up with to help connect past, current, and future grad students, providing you with an outlet to share your experiences and support one another. We’re also continuing to develop new tools to make your life a little easier (just remember to create a free account on our PhD People page to have full access to the tools!). For example, undergraduate and graduate students alike could benefit from submitting a question to Ask the PhDs, a Q&A column answered by faculty and industry PhDs about all facets of life in academia. Those who have completed grad school will especially want to check out our MyCV tool, which can eliminate the guesswork of formatting your curriculum vitae and increase your exposure by providing you with your personalized URL.
We could go on, but you probably get the idea: PhDStudent is a collection of diverse resources all packed into one site. We’re continually adding new articles and tools to stay up-to-date on the latest hot topics and trends in academia, so hopefully you’ve found what you’ve been looking for. Thanks for visiting, and see you around in the forums!
Free psychology videos dealing with a myriad of topics, from Mood Disorders to Cognitive Behavioral Therapies to Anxiety Disorders. Also listed are clinical psychology, developmental psychology, therapy, learning psychology, cognitive psychology, memory and other forms of psychotherapies. Psychotube is a new way to share video and audio clips with other psychology teachers.
Many psychology teachers use short video and audio clips to facilitate their teaching of psychology and this site provides a way of organizing these clips.
The majority of these videos are Youtube or TED talks, but are very interesting and well worth the views! You may subscribe, view the amazingly full dictionary, or glossary or of course, view the videos!
Ken Pope, Ph.D., ABPP, has set up this site to provides free access articles from journals such as American Psychologist, Clinical Psychology: Science & Practice; Psychology, Public Policy, & Law; and Professional Psychology: Research & Practice, among others — as well as the complete book titled Children, Ethics, & the Law.
It also links to licensing agencies in Canada and the United States, ethics codes, informed consent; forensic assessment checklists and more!
Project Implicit is a group of assessments in which a person is given choices to compare from about a person’s race, sex, identity, religious or other possible biases. This social psychology assessment basically tries to combine a mental strength of a person’s thoughts with pictures they may see of a person who may fit that profile in order to establish how much of a bias exists. For instance; with the sex test, you would be expected to see pictures of females and males, for race, one race versus another or more.
While taking this group of implicit association tests–you can take 15 different ones at the beginning–you may feel that your bias is not “correct.” That is okay! Please remember that this is just a tool to use to see what kind of possible biases you may have. If anything else, it is a nice assessment just to try to see what comes up when you try it and find.
