The Ph.D. Program in Clinical-Community Psychology is a scientist-practitioner program in
clinical psychology that
seeks to educate scholars and clinicians, who have strong commitments to
research, evaluation, clinical practice, and community-based action,
solidly grounded in the cultural contexts of all affected stakeholders.
The program integrates clinical, community, and cultural psychology with
a focus on rural, indigenous issues and an applied emphasis on the
integration of research and practice. Through combining the spirit
of clinical and community psychology, the program promotes
contextually-grounded and culturally appropriate research, evaluation,
prevention, clinical service, community work, and social action,
relevant to individuals, groups, families, and communities.
