Abstract

The present survey study investigates psychology internship supervisors' ratings of the utility of specific professional journals in alcoholism treatment training. Respondents from APA-approved internship sites rated 24 journals according to their clinical training utility. The highest rated journal was Journal of Studies on Alcohol. Nine other journals were rated as “somewhat” to “quite” relevant. These relevance ratings did not differ according to whether the supervisor was associated with a “major” versus “informal/minor” rotation in alcoholism treatment. Respondents also listed texts and readings used in their alcoholism treatment training program. Little overlap in these readings was found, although 12 books were listed by at least five respondents. Supervisors appear to draw their materials relevant to alcoholism treatment training from a diverse group of journal outlets.
