Focus on Diversity in Training, Practice, and Research

Clinical Psychology students at St. John’s University undergo training in the most culturally diverse county in the United States - Queens, NY. Students benefit from a wealth of opportunities to develop clinical and research skills working with multicultural populations. The program incorporates issues relating to diversity throughout its curriculum in both clinical practice and research, and the faculty and student body represent a commitment to supporting a multicultural and diverse community.

In addition to the practica experiences obtained at our Center for Psychological Services located in Flushing, Queens, students also complete two years of formal clinical externship training in hospitals, medical centers, and other treatment facilities; thereby providing services to multiethnic populations in the greater metropolitan area.

Students at St. John's benefit in both the classroom and our community-based training clinic from some of the leading researchers, scholars, and practitioners on issues of diversity in psychology and psychological practice. Among these is Beverly Greene, the 2015 recipient of the Henry Tomes Award for Distinguished Senior Career Contributions to the Advancement of Ethnic Minority Psychology.
