The scholar practitioner is a life long process and are normally people who excel in their profession (McClintok, 2004). The role of a practitioner-scholar within the field of psychology is someone who is improving their abilities in research and continues to build experience in the field. The practitioner-scholar looks to improve current research by creating new questions and solutions (Capella University, 2003). Having theoretical empirical knowledge and emotional intelligence, he or she is knowledgeable in their own field of work (McClintok, 2004). A practitioner-scholar is someone who is capable of applying the scientific knowledge, experiential knowledge and research abilities in the field of psychology. Becoming a practitioner-scholar will influence my goals, vision and will enrich my knowledge in my field to become a more holistic practitioner and gain expertise in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Gaining insight and knowledge in research and theory will help me obtain information, based on research, to use improve people’s lives. The scholar-practitioner model has promoted extensive professional training among professionals in psychology master’s and doctoral programs. My vision in my career in psychology is a doctorate’s in ABA. This is my SMART goal with two milestones. My first milestone would be to complete my Master’s in Psychology in a year and a half. I will work on one class at a time unless I feel I can complete two.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
