Presented by Rosalyn Davis, Ph.D.
March 5, 2021
8:30 am – 5:00 pm

Instructional Level

Introductory — Designed for psychologists who may have little to no background in a specialized skill or content area. The learner can become acquainted with the theoretical underpinnings, principles, methods, and perspectives of a content area. Although it can be used as a foundation for more advanced learning, a program may simply focus on breadth, enrichment or general knowledge.

Course Description and Target Audience

This presentation will review and make suggestions for addressing health disparities very broadly. Topics will focus on mental health, addictions, and other areas of potential disparity. Several other dimensions with the potential for disparity will be addressed; including race/ethnicity, gender, country of origin, sexuality, etc.

The target audience is mental health providers (advanced doctoral level psychology trainees, psychologists in practice, master’s level clinicians, etc). There should not be any risks associated with this presentation beyond the possibility of discomfort with the subject matter.
