Personal Statement

Personal Statement

I have certain expectations of graduate students;
1. You should treat each therapy session as a mini-experiment, with your client involved in a single-subject study. Therapy should be based on a clinical hypothesis, not a lesson plan.
2. You should become an independent consumer of research.
3. Your term papers should represent an original synthesis of a variety of findings and opinions on the topic you are studying.
Recognizing that students have different learning styles, I'd like you to explore different ways of learning (and teaching), including videotapes of human dissections and unusual neurogenic communication disorders, computerized self-instruction of anatomy and physiology, and seminar explorations of such topics as, "Is aphasia language without thought or thought without language?"
