Dr. Kevin Antshel is the inaugural recipient of a grant award that will help psychology doctoral students with their transition to the workforce.

Kevin Antshel, professor of psychology and director of the doctoral program in clinical psychology, is using a grant from the American Psychological Association’s (APA) Board of Educational Affairs to train fellow faculty members and graduate students in skills central to entrepreneurship. He will spend the next year designing and implementing a range of workshops, seminars and associated materials.

“While most doctoral programs offer professional development seminars and courses, they rarely are explicitly designed for students to turn occupational challenges into opportunities,” Antshel says. “Our goal is to make psychology doctoral students aware of the concept of entrepreneurship and how it can improve their self-efficacy, regardless of their career orientation.”
