Race and Ethnicity Guidelines in Psychology: Promoting Responsiveness and Equity

Posted: December 11, 2018

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
