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


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).

Leads Northern California Region in Integrating Evidence-Based Substance Use Interventions

Leads Northern California Region in Integrating Evidence-Based Substance Use Interventions

Sarah Ferraro Cunningham
2009, Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology
American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | San Francisco Bay Area

Psychologist at Kaiser Permanente and Co-Founder at Panaptic, Incorporated

“My strong relationship with my advisor, Mary Herget, profoundly impacted my academic life and career. Her support, guidance and clinical supervision in the Clinical Intensive shaped my practice and professional ideals.”

Leads Northern California Region in Integrating Evidence-Based Substance Use Interventions

Dr. Sarah Ferraro Cunningham is a psychologist at Kaiser Permanente and a co-founder of Panaptic, Incorporated. At Kaiser Permanente, Ferraro Cunningham provides individual, group and family therapy at Kaiser Santa Rosa's Chemical Dependency Service. “I collaborate with Kaiser's Division of Research, leading the Northern California region in integrating evidence-based substance use interventions,” she added. Ferraro Cunningham provides support to postdoctoral residents and leads the program evaluation component of the residents’ training in Santa Rosa.

Ferraro Cunningham co-founded Panaptic with fellow Argosy University alumnus Dr. Richard Von Feldt, who graduated in the same year and in the same program. Panaptic is a national organization that provides comprehensive marijuana prevention programs to educational institutions, healthcare organizations and families. “I [also] speak at lectures and conferences regarding marijuana use and prevention to [audiences including] leaders in education, medical providers and mental health providers,” Ferraro Cunningham said.

Her passion for psychology began when she was young. “I wanted to help others and champion issues surrounding diversity and privilege. In high school, I served as a peer counselor and facilitated day-long workshops on diversity,” she stated. Before earning a Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology degree from the American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | San Francisco Bay Area (ASPP, San Francisco Bay Area) in 2009, Ferraro Cunningham obtained a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Lafayette College and a master’s degree in counseling psychology from Northeastern University. She worked for several years at a community mental health center in the Boston area prior to pursuing her doctorate.

Following graduation from ASPP, San Francisco Bay Area, Ferraro Cunningham began her work at Kaiser Permanente as a staff psychologist in chemical dependency clinics. “Throughout my eight years at Kaiser Permanente, I have championed evidence-based practices that address behavioral health integration and contributed to best practices groups focusing on adolescent health. I have also devoted my expertise to nationally recognized research projects on early intervention for teens and young adults struggling with substance use,” she said.

Ferraro Cunningham worked full time during her studies, serving as a practicum trainee, and working as a teacher’s assistant. “Finding time for self-care was a challenge and also necessary for my success. I strongly encourage [students] to take advantage of the amazing support and live training opportunities while at Argosy University. I benefited tremendously from the support provided by my advisor. [Working as a] teaching assistant shaped my career development and practice in many ways,” she mentioned.
