Our training program supports the APA’S Resolution on Appropriate Affirmative Responses to Sexual Orientation Distress and Change Efforts, Preparing Professional Psychologists to Serve a Diverse Public and the Counseling Psychology Model Training Values Statement Addressing Diversity.

This year we continue our tradition of training in the fundamental modalities of Health Service Psychology (HSP) utilizing a scientist-practitioner/integrated health care model with an emphasis on “multiple ways of knowing.” Training occurs primarily through interactive seminars, supervision and mentoring that attends to evidence-based practice, interdisciplinary collaborations, assessment, providing supervision, outreach, and research in the context of a multicultural environment. Adherence to the American Psychological Association’s Code of Ethics and relevant state laws is required by all staff and trainees. Training on ethics and legal concerns are woven into all aspects of training.
