Please join Dr. Scott Pytluk and Dr. Rahul Sharma for a webinar on "Diversity and Clinical Psychology". This presentation is being offered via video conferencing through Go To Meeting. The event will start at 3:30 PM CST on Tuesday, February 14, 2017 and will be approximately one hour long.

As a clinician, it is important to "walk the walk" in terms of cultural competence in clinical practice and teaching. General themes of this panel will include finding a balance of lighting a fire under ourselves (as individual students/faculty/professionals), each other, our institution, and our field and creating necessary spaces for difficult dialogues with supporting ourselves and each other and affirming that our field holds essential keys to addressing the complexity of cultural competence.

Scott Pytluk, Ph.D., ABPP is aprofessor at the Illinois School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Chicago (ISPP). Dr. Pytluk coordinates the psychoanalytic concentration, teaches courses in psychoanalytic theory and therapy, and in issues of diversity and difference. He also advises the campus's "A2Z" group for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and heterosexual allies.


Rahul Sharma, Psy.D., is an assistant professor and the coordinator of the diversity concentration at ISPP. Dr. Sharma's clinical interest is in the development of cultural competence, and, in particular, how to make the study and practice of psychology more relevant and accessible to diverse populations. He is also interested in gender issues and violence against women prevention. Dr. Sharma has worked extensively with the South Asian community, addressing such issues as gender, violence, and dating expectations in relationships.

Log in information is above and will be sent again before the event.

Argosy University honored in Military Advanced Education & Transition's 2017 Guide to Colleges & Universities
Argosy University honored in Military Advanced Education & Transition's 2017 Guide to Colleges & Universities

ORANGE, CALIF. (Jan. 12, 2017) – Military Advanced Education & Transition (MAE&T) has awarded Argosy University, with 28 campus locations in 13 states and online, with the designation of a Top School in its 2017 Guide to Colleges & Universities, measuring best practices in military and veteran education.

 

Now in its tenth year of publishing the Guide, MAE&T evaluated institutions on their military culture, financial aid, flexibility, general support, on-campus support and online support services.

 

“MAE&T’s Guide to Colleges and Universities provides the foundational information a prospective student would use in framing his or her educational needs,” said Kelly Fodel, Military Advanced Education & Transition’s editor-in-chief.

 

Students have access to the survey questions and answers provided by the schools, as well as explanations about critical issues like activation and deployment policies, withdrawal policies, scholarship and financial aid information and important support information.

 

“There are many different variables by which you could evaluate an institution, but we focus on the best practices that have been asserted by various higher education groups and reinforced by veteran groups. These best practices assure students that they have a high chance of success and support at their school of choice,” said Fodel. “That’s why we consider our survey to be the most detailed and informative in the industry.”

 

Visit www.mae-kmi.com for online access to MAE&T’s 2017 Guide to Colleges and Universities, or pick up a copy of the December issue of Military Advanced Education & Transition.

Argosy University, Chicago Students Awarded Live Oak Scholarships

Tabitha Mpamira and Luciano Lima, who are working toward Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology degrees at The Illinois School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Chicago, were recently awarded a Valuing Difference Scholarship from Live Oak, Inc. The scholarship encourages and supports new clinicians who are aligned with the values of Live Oak.

 

Live Oak is an organization that recognizes the consequences of privilege, oppression, discrimination and stigma. It encourages practice psychotherapy, consultation, and training that affirms the value of difference. Its affirmative and inclusive approach is based on an understanding of an integrative change process, and provides clients with opportunities to reduce the disintegrating effects of power and privilege to promote self- actualization and integration.

 

To be considered for the scholarship, Mpamira and Lima wrote an essay to describe how their professional goals related to the values that serve as the framework for the organization. They discussed how they’d use the scholarship award in a way that is consistent with Live Oak’s values.
