Book description

Psychology is a popular subject to study, with thousands entering graduate school each year, but unlike med or pre-law, there is limited information available to help students learn about the field, how to successfully apply, and how to thrive while completing doctoral work. The Portable Mentor is a useful, must-have resource for all students interested in psychology. This third edition is updated and expanded, designed to address students' and trainees' need for open dialogue and mentorship. Throughout, it covers some of the common challenges graduates face and features discussions about how to celebrate your identity and find a rewarding, worthwhile career path. It comprises thirty chapters written by more than seventy of the field's top experts, successfully filling a void in professional development advice.

Reviews

‘You go to graduate school. You do research. And then you get a job. If that’s what you think, The Portable Mentor is for you. It will show that the process is so much more - more complex, more varied, and even richer and more fulfilling than you might imagine - if you learn from the advice of this diversity of experts.’

Mahzarin Banaji - Cabot Professor of Social Ethics, Harvard University, USA

‘This book is a wonderful resource for anyone thinking about a career in psychology.’

Linda Bartoshuk - Bushnell Professor of Food Science and Human Nutrition and the UFCST Director for Psychophysical Research, University of Florida, USA

‘This edition continues to offer sage guidance for all of the steps in developing a career as a psychologist. Importantly, it expands on prior volumes by addressing some of the most critical personal and professional issues and challenges facing young scholars today (e.g., the ubiquitous imposter syndrome; the unique concerns of students of diverse identities). This book is a must-read for all students!’

Joanne Davila - Professor, Stony Brook University, USA

‘As someone who would never have pursued a career in psychology without the guidance of mentors, I am grateful to Mitch Prinstein for the essential guidance in the third edition of The Portable Mentor. Comprehensive, clear, and engaging, this book offers advice and support to individuals, beginning with when one is first considering graduate training in psychology to one’s career in various roles of psychologists. The contributors present diverse perspectives and lived experiences. This edited volume is clearly a work reflecting each of the contributor’s dedication to mentoring. Do young people a favor by recommending this book to them.’

Sherryl H. Goodman - Samuel Candler Dobbs Professor of Psychology and Director of Graduate Studies, Emory University, USA

‘This new edition of The Portable Mentor will transform the face of graduate training programs in Psychology. For first generation students, The Portable Mentor is a necessary roadmap. For underrepresented and minoritized students, this edition lifts the curtain to reveal the true contemporary challenges anticipated to emerge during graduate training and beyond. In fact, this book can guide graduate programs seeking transformation to ensure the diversification of psychological science and a more equitable labor force.’
