Multicultural Research and Training Lab


The Multicultural Research and Training Lab (MRTL) was organized by faculty members from the Psychology Division to provide PsyD students engaged in multicultural research a space to discuss and receive feedback on their clinical dissertations topics as well as engage in discourse on the clinical implications of their work.

In addition to offering dissertation support, MRTL provides students the opportunity to discuss their views on how effectively the PsyD program contributes to their multicultural competence, and the ways in which GSEP can offer a more welcoming experience for students from diverse backgrounds.

Lab meetings are scheduled from 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month. Location TBA.

Faculty Advisors: Carrie Castaneda-Sound, Ph.D.; Miguel Gallardo, Psy.D.; Shelly Harrell, Ph.D.; Daryl Rowe, Ph.D.
