Spotlight on Minority Students
Yous, Phakdey Chea; Mahamed, Hodman; Kost, Kimberly
Communique, v38 n2 p10-11 Oct 2009
This article spotlights minority students in school psychology training programs. Three students from underrepresented backgrounds were asked to reflect on what aspects of their program made them feel welcome and supported. In their discussions, they took the task a step further and furnished ideas about ways in which school psychology training programs can improve how they approach issues of diversity within the context of the training program itself. In addition, the students outlined recommendations for school psychology training programs to address the disproportionately low number of minority students in the profession and the need for more diversity.
