There are a number of good reasons why you should make 2018 your year to pass the EPPP. In a
live interview yesterday with Robin Phillips, Dr. Graham Taylor discussed the significance of
2018 and the various reasons why it would be prudent to aim for passing the psychology
licensing exam this year.
During the interview, Dr. Graham Taylor spoke about decay theory, upcoming changes to the
EPPP, procrastination, and much more. You can watch the entire interview below:
In a live broadcast on July 27th, Dr. Graham Taylor gave an overview of TSM’s program and explained some of the reasons our learning platform has been able to achieve a 94% first-time pass rate. Dr. Taylor shared his own story of how the pressures of needing to pass the EPPP with only a month to study forced him to take a step back to analyze how the human brain works, and also to study how various theories of memory and learning can be incorporated into the learning process. The result was a paradigm shift in the learning process which is responsible for TSM 94% first-time pass rate.
What is the EPPP? Why is licensure important? What requirements does a candidate have to meet before they can apply to take the psychology licensing exam? Dr. Graham Taylor addressed all these questions in a Facebook Live event earlier this month. In his broadcast, which can be watched below, Dr. Taylor gave an overview of the EPPP, explained what content areas a person should expect to see on the EPPP and how the percentages in these content areas are changing as of February 2018.
In the video below, Dr. Graham Taylor shares the six steps for successfully passing the EPPP. Learning these six secrets could make the difference between a pass or fail on the psychology licensure exam.
This video occurred as part of TSM’s ongoing series of Facebook Live broadcasts every Thursday. These can be viewed at 12:00 pm PST through our Facebook page, where viewers are encouraged to write in with their questions. (Due to Dr. Taylor’s travelling schedule, there will be no broadcast next week, although the live videos will resume at the normal time on September 7th.)
As part of TSM’s ongoing mission to help you prepare for the EPPP, Dr. Graham Taylor has been offering weekly broadcasts via Facebook Live. These broadcasts, which occur every Thursday at 12:00 pm PST at our Facebook page, are open to the public. Viewers are encouraged to write in their questions, which Dr. Taylor will address during the live stream.
Last week Dr. Taylor spoke about important changes that are coming to the EPPP. In addition to the new test, known as “EPPP Step 2”, the ASPPB is also introducing changes to the existing EPPP. These changes will be implemented on February 15th 2018 and affect how the various domains are weighted. Watch the video below to learn everything you need to know about these changes.
How can you discover your own particular learning style? What is the difference between being a visual learner, auditory learner or tactile learner? As you’re studying for the Examination for Professional Practice of Psychology (EPPP), how can you leverage the strength of your personal learning style to better learn, consolidate and recall content?
These were just some of the questions that Dr. Graham Taylor addressed in last Thursday’s Facebook Live event. In the video, which can be watched below, Dr. Taylor shared research-based approaches of learning and memory to help you make your learning a dynamic and active process.
How can a person perform at peak capacity during times of stress? What is the foundation for self-confidence? Why do we often perform better when we’re practicing a skill vs. performing it under pressure? How can we get into a flow-state whereby we become completely engaged in present-moment tasks? What are the principles behind a high-performance mindset?
These are the types of questions we ask here at TSM as we help prepare psychology students for the high-stress licensure exam known as the EPPP. These are also the types of questions that musicians, athletes, public speakers and sports psychologists wrestle with every day.
Michael Gervais of the Seattle Seahawks talks about the way great performers use their minds to realize their full potential. Gervais, who has worked as a sports psychologist with some of the world’s best athletes, explains how the principles that help champions perform at peak capacity can actually assist all of us to perform better in the situations we face every day. This fascinating conversation shows that developing skills like mindfulness, positive self-talk and focused attention can make the difference between success and failure. Because so much of what Gervais says is relevant to exam-anxiety, we encourage all psychology students to watch this video at least six months before sitting the EPPP.
Who would have thought that watching magic tricks could be a deep psychological experience. In the video below Brian Miller weaves magic with deep insights into human nature and relationships. This is definitely worth taking 15 minutes out of your day to watch.
This week we wanted to share some videos that show ordinary people making themselves smarter through following the right techniques. At TSM we have always maintained that the ability to master material, as well as qualities like intelligence and memory, are skills we develop through practicing right things repeatedly and not innate gifts that a person either has or doesn’t have (see our earlier posts here and here and here.)
Many ordinary people are now proving that this is true in some amazing ways. Here are three videos that all revolve around the theme that we can actually rewire our brains to become smarter through following certain ancient and modern techniques of memory and learning.
