Race and Ethnicity Guidelines in Psychology: Promoting Responsiveness and Equity

Posted: January 30, 2019

SUMMARY

Boards, committees, and other stakeholders are asked to review, and provide feedback to the Task Force on a new set of guidelines that address race and ethnicity in psychology, ultimately recommending that the Council of Representatives adopt the main motion and approve as APA policy the Race and Ethnicity Guidelines in Psychology: Promoting Responsiveness and Equity.

After substantial review, the Board for the Advancement of Psychology in the Public Interest (BAPPI) concluded that the 2013 revision of the Multicultural Guidelines (2002) would benefit from significant restructuring, a different overall focus, and updated content. In addition, BAPPI recommended that the Multicultural Guidelines be separated into two distinct sets of guidelines, 1) a timely set of “umbrella” guidelines that address broad issues across all underserved and marginalized populations, and 2) a separate set of guidelines focused specifically on race/ethnicity and the particular psychological issues and needs of people of color in the United States. The “umbrella” guidelines entitled Multicultural Guidelines: Reconsideration and Application was released in 2017. The Guidelines presented here are the separate guidelines focused specifically on race and ethnicity.

It is BAPPI’s intent that the document Race and Ethnicity Guidelines in Psychology: Promoting Responsiveness and Equity will provide a new framework that organizes the totality of scholarship both within psychology and from other disciplines and will serve as a guide in appropriately addressing race/ethnicity in education and training, service delivery and research. All comments should be received for consideration by the Task Force no later than February 3, 2019 via the following link: http://apacustomout.apa.org/commentPracGuidelines/Comment.aspx?siteCode=8

SAMD Workshop on: "Racism Through the Lens of White Privilege: A Spiritual Conquest"

Posted: January 23, 2019

A spiritual quest is the longing to become our true selves. This longing requires us to look deep withing for hidden or rejected parts of ourselves. It is not comfortable to discover we are not who we thought we were. This is what happened to Rev. Jane E. Vennard when she came face to face with her white privilege. The purpose of this workshop is to explore white privilege as a way to know ourselves more fully and to explore racism with integrity. 

When: Saturday, January 26, 2019
Time: 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
Where: First Unitarian Church, 1400 N Lafayette St, Denver, CO 80218

100 Lawmakers. 120 Days. 5 Million Lives.

Posted: January 16, 2019

Colorado’s legislative session has begun and it is a new chance to save lives.

We’re bringing a broad range of proposals to the State Capitol, including plans to reduce the rate of suicide. Among other requests, we’re asking the General Assembly and the governor to:

  1. Fund the Zero Suicide framework.
  2. Strengthen mental health parity laws.
  3. Create a statewide tracking system for psychiatric beds and substance use treatment facilities.
  4. Adopt a red flag law.
  5. Increase the number of school mental health professionals.
  6. Expand access to treatment, housing, and supportive services.
  7. Reduce reliance on the criminal justice system.

It’s an ambitious agenda (detailed here). And with only 120 days until legislators adjourn, we don’t have much time to enact it.
