To begin this assignment, take some time to reflect on all you have learned about the field and ways you can contribute to psychology.What aspects of your research affected your vision and/or goals? Given this, what research topics do you think you would you be interested in the future?How was your vision affected by the career information in your readings from your Career Paths in Psychology text, and your exploration of the Career Center and other resources?Revise and refine the vision statement and long-term goals that you developed earlier in in response to the feedback you have received and your studies in this course.

For this step in the assignment, analyze the competencies, responsibilities, ethical considerations and other requirements needed for achieving your vision and goals as a professional in psychology. These may include:Capella program and specialization requirements.Skills, abilities, and attitudes critical to success in the field of psychology such as critical thinking, effective decision making, problem solving, evidence-based solutions, ethical integrity, cultural competence, and conflict resolution skills.

Since you are at the beginning of your journey to a future career, you will have gaps in required knowledge, skills, attitudes, and credentials. Identify any areas in which you need further development to achieve your goals and vision as a psychology practitioner-scholar.Action PlanWith all this knowledge of your vision and goals, and the competencies and requirements for the field in hand, you are ready to plot your course to make these aspirations a reality. The final step in this assignment is to create a revised action plan to achieve your goals. This means translating the requirements for your profession and the development areas you identified into specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timed (SMART) steps to achieve your vision.Include the following elements in your action plan:Completing your Capella program.Possible opportunities for additional training and/or volunteer work to address gaps in your knowledge or skills.Possible opportunities in your current position to develop additional skills through coaching or stretch assignments.Capella Community groups and/or professional organizations that you could join for networking with others and completing additional informational interviews.How you will stay current with the research and literature in the field.How you can apply what you have learned in this course about researching psychological literature and evaluating it in terms of reliability, credibility, ethics, and value.How you will apply critical thinking and effective decision making as a psychologist.How you will use Capella’s support resources to develop the skills required to successfully develop your writing and other competencies essential to the profession and your role as a graduate learner.At this point, there may be an overwhelming number of steps that you could complete to work towards your vision. If it helps you work through this plan, focus on major milestones and requirements as well as steps you can take during your Capella degree program to help translate your vision into SMART short-term goals and tasks.If you feel the need for more input, consider reviewing the SMART Goals presentation and Career Center, or searching the Capella library or the Internet for additional reflective exercises or inspiring ideas about transforming your vision into an action plan.To maximize your scoring potential, be sure that you fully address all assignment requirements and the meet the criteria in the Your Career in Psychology Scoring Guide that will be used to assess your assignment.SmarthinkingBefore you turn in your assignment, it is strongly recommended that submit it to Smarthinking in advance, and revise it based on the feedback you receive.
