Ah...the Doc Project. Sometimes referred to (affectionately?) as the DP. I'm just beginning to form a relationship with my DP and I would describe the connection as tenuous at best. During the second year of the PsyD program, we all take a course on Research Methods. Many of my fellow students talked about being in a constant state of anxiety throughout the two hours class, overwhelmed at the idea of coming up with an idea, much less actually producing...something.
