Application and Research Vision
Describe your vision for your career as a practitioner-scholar, and include three specific goals using the SMART goal model.
Discuss how you would apply the findings from your literature review to your future professional practice in psychology.
What aspects of your research affected your vision or goals?
Given this, what topics do you think you would be interested in researching in the future?
Analyze how your work in this course will help you accomplish the functions, responsibilities, and ethics required of a professional in your specialization. You should cite information from your literature review and from any interviews you conducted with a professional from your chosen career path. Remember to critically evaluate all information you use.
Describe how your vision was affected by the information in the readings from the Career Paths in Psychology text or your exploration of the Career Center and other resources.
Professional Competencies and Requirements
Understanding the competencies and responsibilities involved in your future career in psychology is essential for growing as a practitioner-scholar in your field. It is also necessary to understand any requirements needed for your specialized practice and scholarship.
For this section in the assessment, describe the competencies, responsibilities, ethical considerations, and other requirements needed for achieving your vision and goals as a professional in psychology. These include:
Capella program and specialization requirements.
Credentialing, certification, licensure, and accreditation practices and standards.
Analyze the role of the practitioner-scholar model in guiding professional development. In your analysis, include:
Skills, abilities, and attitudes critical to success in the field of psychology, such as those related to critical thinking, decision making, problem solving, evidence-based practices, ethical integrity, cultural competence, and conflict resolution.
Make note of skills, abilities, and attitudes related to the practitioner-scholar model and the experience you had in researching scholarly sources in your literature review.
Ethical codes, principles, laws, and policies applicable to your chosen career path.
With all this knowledge of your vision and goals and the competencies and requirements for the field in hand, you are ready to plot your course to making these aspirations a reality. The final section in this assessment is an action plan to achieve your goals. This means translating the requirements for your profession and the development areas you identified into specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timed (SMART) steps to achieve your vision.
Include these elements in your action plan:
Plan for completing your Capella program.
Possible opportunities for additional training or volunteer work to address gaps in your knowledge or skills.
Possible opportunities in your current position to develop additional skills.
Capella community groups and professional organizations that you could join for networking with others and completing additional informational interviews.
Ways you will stay current with the research, literature, and ethics in the field.
Ways you can apply what you have learned in this course about researching psychological literature and evaluating it in terms of reliability, credibility, ethics, and value.
Ways you will apply critical thinking and effective decision making in your specialization.
Ways you will use Capella’s support resources to develop the skills required to improve your writing and other competencies essential to the profession and your role as a graduate learner.
Review the SMART Goals presentation and Career Center resources, and search the Capella University Library for additional reflective exercises and inspiring ideas about transforming your vision into an action plan.
