Thank you for RSVP'ing for our webinar on "Diversity and Clinical Psychology". This presentation is being offered via video conferencing through Go To Meeting. The event will start at 3:30 PM CST on Tuesday, February 14th and will be approximately 1 hour.

As a clinician, it is important to "walk the walk" in terms of cultural competence in clinical practice and teaching. General themes of this panel will include finding a balance of lighting a fire under ourselves (as individual students/faculty/professionals), each other, our institution, and our field and creating necessary spaces for difficult dialogues with supporting ourselves and each other and affirming that our field holds essential keys to addressing the complexity of cultural competence. Students will be encouraged, but not required, to participate.
