PsyD Students Present at Washington State Psychological Association Convention

A group of student researchers from the Seattle PsyD in Clinical Psychology presented their research at the Washington State Psychological Association Convention on October 13 and 14, 2023. They presented three posters. Two explored the topic of reproductive justice through a psychological lens. These were titled “Colonialism, Control, and Copulation: A Primer on Reproductive Justice” and “Reproductive Justice: A Phenomenological Exploration of Female Sterilization.” A third poster, “Pathways to the Therapist Paragon: A Decolonial Grounded Theory,” explored how privilege and the idea of an ideal therapist could be damaging to therapists of color and to the non-white clients of white therapists.
