Who we are
The Clinical Psychology Graduate Student Organization (CPGSO) works to uphold the 3 pillars of our mission: Service, Giving, and Growth.
We do this through community outreach, philanthropy, and by providing professional and personal development initiatives to our members– the graduate students in the Clinical Psychology program at WSU.
What we need
We are in a unique position as graduate students in the psychology department; not only are we students at WSU, but we are also therapists to and conduct assessment for students, staff, and community members. In addition to our roles as therapists, graduate students in our department serve as instructors, mentors, and researchers. From these positions we exert unique influence on the student body and broader WSU community.
Among the competencies that are essential for our ability to support the WSU community, is a firm foundational knowledge of issues related to diversity, equity, and anti-racism.
While these are topics incorporated into our coursework, now more than ever, we are seeing how essential it is that people in positions of influence go the extra mile in establishing habits, mentalities, and systems that disrupt racial inequity.
Your gift will go towards bringing targeted training to our students in the area of racial justice within psychology.
The effect of your gift will go beyond the individual students who go through this training; the knowledge we gain will inform our work at therapists, instructors, and researchers reverberating throughout the broader WSU community.
