About this title


In this hilarious and behind-the-scenes look at the lives of psychologists-in-training, Dr. Gregory Lester reveals what we have all suspected but never knew for sure: it's a jungle in there. From professors who blame unexpected research results on Star Trek to Monopoly games that end in death threats, clinical psychology students live lives few of can imagine. Theirs is a world where exams can be so terrifying that students can't write because their hands are shaking, where studying fourteen hours a day isn't enough to keep up. where romantic involvements can require the participation of law enforcement personnel, and treating patients is the easy part. In Shrunken Heads, Dr. Lester takes us on a dizzying roller-coaster ride through the excesses, extremes, and bizarre experiences of being trained as a mental health professional. You will laugh out loud at this no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoners, wild and wooly romp through the world of becoming a psychologist. Don't say we didn't warn you.
