A Note from Ben

As mentioned in Episode #23 (Very Bad Graduate School), I began a master’s thesis that remains unfinished due to resource constraints at my university. The thesis, which you can download here, is titled How Cognitive Biases Impact Therapist Development: The Importance of Self-Awareness in Graduate Psychology Education.

I welcome all feedback and conversation about the document. I also hope to repurpose my work into an academic journal article in the near future, and I extend an invitation for anyone interested in collaborating to get in touch. As of this post, the next step in furthering this project (other than some editing, of course), is to connect with someone who has access to an institutional review board. I hope to adjust the survey as needed, gain IRB approval, and begin gathering data to support the hypotheses in the thesis.

Thank you for reading. I love you all.
