The Ecology of Experiences for African American Women in Clinical Doctoral Programs
Horsford, Sheena; Carolan, Marsha; Johnson, Deborah
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v47 n4 p227-238 Oct 2019
African American women must navigate higher education, in particular, clinical doctoral programs, as a gendered racial minority. These women often endure multiple levels of discrimination to obtain their degree. Findings of this study highlight these experiences and suggest the importance of increasing supports for African American women in clinical doctoral programs. Practices and supports should be put in place so that students of color are not marginalized because of their race.
