Program Description

Seeking applicants who have strong academics in clinical or counseling psychology and a demonstrated commitment to working with diverse populations/multicultural psychology. Our aim is to train leaders in the field of multicultural psychology. Our training is oriented toward the culturally attuned practice of professional psychology. CMTP utilizes the APA mentored-practitioner-scientist training model. Through this model, we provide mentoring, dissertation/research support-related activities(i.e. didactics), access to Networks of multicultural psychologists and others, inpatient and outpatient (child and adult) placements sites, forensic placements, medical/mental health interface (behavioral medicine) and community-based experience. Focus on evidence-based practices. CMTP has a 49 year history of training leaders in the field of multicultural psychology.
