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.
