The University of South Florida is offering a Summer Research Institute for undergraduates interested in mental health. The 10 week program is sponsored by the National Institute of Mental Health which provides a $4000 stipend for students as well as up to $400 in travel funds. The program is conducted at the USF Florida Mental Health Institute and is called the SRI@FMHI. Students will work with a faculty mentor to conduct a research project, will present their work at a Symposium, will participate in research seminars and skill-building workshops, and will visit community agencies and organizations providing mental health services in the Tampa Bay area. In addition, students will complete research ethics and IRB training. A flyer for the program is attached. We would appreciate it if you would distribute this flyer to students who may be interested in applying. The on-line application is available at: http://www.cbcs.usf.edu/Research/SRI/

One to four month programs running from May until October in the New York City area and two weeks in Honolulu in 2013 (coinciding with the APA annual convention). This is an intensive and extensive training program centering on our validated evidence-based applied sport psychology protocol. Our program is demanding and rigorous. Undergraduates, graduates, graduate students and professional practitioners will be exposed to and trained in advanced research methodologies and APPLIED testing and intervention procedures, especially in the context of ecological on-the-playing field and real competition settings. Our program has pioneered advanced methods in intervention efficacy testing an aspect of the mental training process that is universally neglected. Students will also be exposed to and trained in evidence-based applied psychophysiology and biofeedback, key procedures in the athlete assessment, intervention and efficacy testing process. We have an on-going extant longitudinal research program that continues to extend, amend and replicate investigations and findings that go back to 2006 when our summer program first started. In the meantime we have amassed one of the largest databases of athlete neuropsychophysiological functioning in existence.
Past participants from over 75 colleges/universities have been included as authors in published papers and co-presenters. Many of our students received academic credit for our program at their home institutions. Hours in our program have be accrued toward clinical supervision and have been counted toward ABSP certification by numerous participants.
Unique to this year's program is the opportunity for students to organize their own program (where they will reside during the coming summer) using ABSP's new distance-based athlete assessment and intervention protocol that is elucidated in the book: Evidence-Based Applied Sport Psychology: A Practitioner's Manual. In a pilot test of the distance-based internship/fellowship model ABSP that is described in this book a college student who played summer semi-pro baseball monitored a baseball player's psychophysiology during official real competition over the course of 48 games (telemetry-based real-time heart rate variability beat-to-beat responding) in an attempt to quantify peak performance/zone and pressure response mind-body responses. The derived data will be presented in Honolulu next August. Such and similar projects can be arranged for students who cannot come to New York City or Honolulu. This opens up opportunities for many more students. Students will receive credit for eventual board certification in sport psychology. They can also read the aforementioned book for credit and engage in practitioner challenges in the book under my mentorship for additional credit and tuition discounts. These distance-based opportunities can also be arranged throughout the academic year in conjunction with sport psychology and related courses in conjunction with ABSP.

To provide students with practical experience, the department offers a number of internships that can be completed for independent study credit. Recently, students have worked in a center for autistic children, a battered women´s shelter, advertising agencies, biofeedback clinics, employee assistance programs, residential facilities for emotionally disturbed children, and a suicide phone line. Others have run groups for shy teenagers at a local high school, worked in day care centers or elementary schools, and consulted at local businesses.
You can do an internship for academic credit, providing you do 100 hours of work at the site during the term along with associated reading of the relevant literature and substantial writing to be arranged with your supervising professor. Paid internships (such as summer jobs) cannot receive course credit. The Psychology Department has created an Internship Handbook that describes the procedures for initiating an internship experience, as well providing contact information for numerous internship sites in the area. An Internship Contract must be completed and returned to the department secretary, before any internship is initiated.
