PROFESSIONAL EXTERIORIZE BEHAVIORAL CHANGE AMONG CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY TRAINEES
A group of 22 clinical psychology trainees were assessed in a pre-test post-test longitudinal design to assess the effects of training on their outlook towards matters related with routine life. The trainees’ behaviors were assessed within sub-categories of Neutrality & Objectivity (NO) Professional Influence (PI) Creativity & Ingenuity (CI) Diagnostic & Prognostic Concern (DPC) Etiological Considerations (EC) with depth interviews portrayed as entry interviews but were meant to evaluate the earlier effect of psychological trainings’ influences on trainees’ behaviors. These interviews assessed the influences of earlier training as EC, (Exceptionally High) or (H) High or (N) Neutral or with (DMI) Defense Mechanism Intervention or (Id) Id complexes? After these entry interviews the trainees underwent a training of 12 months in clinical psychology teaching department. After completion of successful training all trainees were appreciated for their performance during training and as a reward instead of an assignment they were assigned to watch a movie of their own choice at their own and to prepare a detailed report about their choice and preference for the move selection. Later the researcher watched himself the movies and evaluated reports and contents as thematic apperception behavioral contents reported by the trainees and placed these in sub-categories (NO) (PI) (CI) (DPC) and (EC) to assess the state as an influence of advance psychological training as EC or (H) or (N) or (DMI) or (ID). Later the pre-test and post-test responses of the trainees in similar categories were compared and assessed for the influence of training on trainees post-training behaviors, the comparison of pre and post responses revealed a significant influence of training on the personalities of trainees.
