In all of their roles, clinical psychologists have the potential to engage with diverse populations thoughtfully, ethically, intentionally, and in a way that promotes justice. This class equips students with the foundational knowledge, awareness and skills to reach this goal. The class builds awareness of the ways in which social identity influences our perceptions, interactions, and professional endeavors, and introduces students to the ways in which psychology has both perpetuated oppression and interrupted injustice in its distant and recent history. Students end the semester with training goals for growing their capacity to engage with our diverse society thoughtfully and intentionally. May not be repeated for credit.
