Khashayar Farhadi Langroudi
2016, Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology
2013, Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology
American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | San Francisco Bay Area
Postdoctoral Fellow at Kaiser Permanente

“The thorough, wide-ranging training, education and mentoring that I received at the American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | San Francisco Bay Area has prepared me for almost any situation that my professional career has thus far presented.”

Provides Therapy to a Diverse Range of Ethnic Minorities and Gender and Sexual Orientations

Dr. Khashayar Farhadi Langroudi is a postdoctoral fellow at Kaiser Permanente in San Francisco, receiving training in dialectical behavioral therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy in treatment of variety of emotional regulations. The facility where he’s working serves a diverse range of ethnic minorities and gender and sexual orientations. “I am part of the program evaluation team to measure the impact of group psychotherapy on our patients,” he said.

Farhadi Langroudi’s non-traditional path to a career in psychology began in Iran. Family pressure led him to enroll in the University of Tehran’s Agricultural Engineering program despite his wish to study opera singing. “My drive to pursue operatic arts compelled me to study classical singing in Graz, Austria upon completion of my [bachelor’s degree],” he added.

Farhadi Langroudi later moved to New York City to study biology. There, he discovered a passion for psychology. “[It was a] field in which my compassion for others could find a professional focus,” he stated. “Finding my niche in clinical psychology, I received my master’s and doctorate in clinical psychology at the American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | San Francisco Bay Area.” He earned a Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology in 2016 and a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology in 2013.

He chose Argosy University, San Francisco Bay Area because the school assisted him—as a qualified international student—through the application process. Farhadi Langroudi believes that the thorough, wide-ranging training, education and mentoring that he received at Argosy University prepared him for a professional career. He advises current students to constantly reflect on long-term goals. “I strongly suggest that students think beyond their academic training and environment, and reach out to the community at large in order to enrich and enhance their learning,” he stated.

He is also active in the psychology community, serving as the co-chair of the diversity committee for Association for Contextual Behavioral Science (ACBS), a group that develops strategies to promote diversity and disseminate contextual behavioral science to diverse populations. Farhadi Langroudi is a member of the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues Diversity Committee (APA Division 9) that focuses on the organization’s impact on the discipline of psychology and on society at large. “This committee has the important task of fostering a diversity mission in research, social policy and membership,” he added. Other involvements include:

  • Member of Diversity Committee for Association for Contextual Behavioral Science (ACBS)
  • Member of the APAGS Committee on Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity (CSOGD)
  • Past president LGBTQ Argosy Advocacy and Research Group San Francisco
  • President and Founder LGBTQ Argosy Advocacy and Research Group San Francisco

While at Argosy University, Farhadi Langroudi used his experience as an LGBTQ Persian to educate those around him about cultural issues. “I was very lucky to have sensitive mentors within the university,” he added, stating that his education shaped his practices, both professionally and personally. “I connected with great staff members who really care about what they are teaching, and the student body was vital and dynamic. I am hugely grateful for the role Argosy University has played in my life.”

Farhadi Langroudi has received numerous professional accolades, including Division 44's Student and ECP Research Travel Award (2016), a Gender Spectrum Conference scholarship (2015), and being published and peer reviewed in the American Psychological Association of Graduate Students Committee on Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity (Kiet Huynh & Khashayar Farhadi Langroudi, 2009).
