Abstract

Reports on graduate psychology students enrolled in a seminar on program and outcome evaluation research who were required to conduct clinical-care studies in collaboration with a local community mental health center (CMHC). Two students studied the dropout rate at the center while 3 students studied the characteristics and treatment course of clients who had received chemotherapy medication only. This venture had mutual and substantial benefits for both students as well as the CMHC. The CMHC was able to complete 2 mandated clinical care studies, and the students were given an opportunity to apply techniques learned in the seminar and to gain firsthand experience in the conduct of evaluation research.
