The mission of the Multicultural Forum is to bring together students and faculty members in the graduate psychology programs at Chestnut Hill College to provide peer support for students who identify as ethnic minorities and to encourage research and scholarship in multicultural topics in the field of professional psychology. Membership is open to any graduate student in psychology or faculty member who has a special interest in issues pertaining to topics such as multicultural competence, cross-cultural psychotherapy and supervision, culturally sensitive treatment of clients of color, and general issues related to ethnic minority students in clinical psychology training programs. For more information, contact Simrun Sandhu at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PsyD students received the 2011 PPAGS Community Service Project Award. The award is given to a team of students who made the most salient contributions to the community. Their project title, “Immigration, Acculturation and Parenting: Bridging the Gap between Immigrant Parents and Their Children,” addressed the need for culturally sensitive mental health services for immigrants in the Philadelphia area.
