'To be, or not to be, a psychologist': Psychology students implicit theories of what makes an ideal psychologist.This miniproject is now complete.
This research project seeks to examine psychology students' implicit theories of what it is to be a psychology student and a psychologist. The work will assess shifts in students' perceptions and evaluations in the attitudes, behaviours, knowledge and skills needed to be a successful psychology student and psychologist across all three years of the degree. The work will provide qualitative and quantitative data that will allow researchers, lecturers and students to plan knowledge, skills, personal, academic and career learning and development.
