The clinic’s diversity committee presents the “Cultural Humility in Research Award” annually to a GSU graduate student during the clinical psychology program’s “Research Day.” This year, the award went to Sarah Clark (center), presented by committee co-chairs Scot Seitz (left) and Becky LeCroix (right).

Clinic Diversity Statement

We, the clinicians and supervisors of the GSU Psychology Clinic, value the differences and similarities among people, and respect the multiple identities of the clients and communities with whom we work.We define diversity broadly in terms of race, culture, ethnicity, sexual orientation identity, age, religious beliefs, socioeconomic status, physical and mental abilities, and gender identity.

We make ongoing efforts to increase our awareness of different identities and worldviews through science, training and practice. Our training in diversity includes required coursework, professional development seminars, exposure to the latest research, and supervision. In practice, we work hard to assure that our assessments and interventions are culturally competent. We also have an active clinic diversity committee comprised by student clinicians and supervisors.
