Bridge Groups

  • Provide small group support while transitioning from graduate school to professional life.
  • The groups meet quarterly to reflect on, discuss, and resource share around the natural phases of transition.

MAP Mentorship

MAP alumni can support young professionals in their education and careers by becoming a mentor. You will be paired with a current MAP student for conversation, support, and advice on navigating graduate school or recent graduate joining the profession. Students and new alumni have consistently expressed interest in hearing from program alumni about their experience as a graduate student and applying their MAP education after graduation, be it as a therapist or in some other role. The mentor relationship is confidential.

  • To become a mentor, send an email with the following information:
  • Year graduated
  • Current job
  • Current location (city/state)
  • Licenses/certifications obtained (if any)
  • Brief (1-2 sentence) summary on the focus of your work.
  • Preference for mentoring a current student, a recent graduate, or both.
  • Contact information (business phone number and email address - will only be shared with the mentee)

Students and recent graduates interested in a mentor will review the mentors list (contact information excluded) and, in consultation with their advisor or program director, will determine the best match. The program will first discuss with you your availability and then provide you with information to contact the student/graduate directly. We ask that you confirm with us when contact is made so we can keep track of mentors and make sure we do not overload any one alumnus. when you

At this point MAP is out of the loop and your mentorship remains confidential. We will only keep a record of who is matched with a mentor so as not to overload any one mentor. We will ask the mentor to let us know when the mentee relationship concludes and ask for your feedback on the program once a year.

This important program would not have become a reality without the very generous support of our MAP alumni. Students/graduates sincerely appreciate the insights and support of our alumni.
