Human Diversity in the Health Professions

Human Diversity in the Health Professions
Of all the forms of injustice
discrimination in health care is the most cruel.
Martin Luther King Jr.
For many years the California Board of Psychology has affirmed that issues of human diversity are an essential consideration throughout all aspects of the mandates of the board and throughout the education, training, examination and practice of the profession. To help pursue its objective of enhancing the focus of licensed psychologists on matters related to human diversity, the board established a work group of distinguished experts on the topic. The report of the effort and the summary of the group's accomplishments can be found at this link

The board would like to publicly thank all the experts who contributed to the information that is provided in the final report. Any comments or suggestions regarding the report can be emailed to the board at bopmail@dca.ca.gov.
