How the Internship is Committed to Diversity

The SHCS‘s goal in diversity training is to ensure that interns develop the knowledge, skills, and awareness necessary to provide competent psychological services to all members of the public. To this end, the SHCS’s training program requires an expected competency in individual and cultural diversity. These competencies were developed to comply with the APA’s statement on Preparing Professional Psychologists to Serve a Diverse Public: “...professional psychology training programs strive to ensure that psychology trainees demonstrate acceptable levels of knowledge, skills, and awareness to work effectively with diverse individuals.” Diversity experiences and training are interwoven throughout the training program to ensure that interns are both personally supported and well-trained in this area.
