Keywords

Day of Common Learning

Description

The study and application of psychological science tend to have a Western bias. Given this, reforming the discipline of psychology and its related fields to better provide a voice to individuals of all backgrounds is an important endeavor. Through vignette discussion, two counseling psychologists will share about their research interests and experiences in this line of work. Specifically, they will talk about how they challenge the individualistic focus in help-seeking research, and how they seek to integrate interpersonal and culturally relevant factors in examining college students’ help-seeking attitudes and behaviors. Drs. Shea and Kim will also share about their current research collaboration, and they will discuss how the anticipated findings have the potential to innovate assessment, development, and delivery of counseling services to students of all backgrounds—both on and beyond SPU campus.
