The Comprehensive Evaluation of Student-Trainee Competence in Professional Psychology Programs

The faculty believes prospective students should have informed consent regarding how they will be evaluated if they enroll in the Psy.D. Program. The link below takes you to a document that begins with a model policy and then includes the Radford University policy as well as a set of operational definitions (APPENDIX S in the Handbook). If an applicant is offered admission, the document is sent along with the admission letter and the student must sign and return the document or else the admission offer will be withdrawn.


Counseling Psychology Model Training Values Statement Addressing Diversity

Counseling Psychology has a long history of attending to diversity and as we indicate in the section on our emphases, attention to and respect for cultural diversity (broadly defined to include characteristics such as (but not limited to) age, gender, gender identity, race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, religion/spirituality, sexual orientation, disability, language, socioeconomic status, rurality, and intersections of all of these) is one of the Program’s four primary foci. The faculty believe it is important for prospective students to appreciate how seriously we take being respectful of others and therefore we have adopted a values statement on diversity. Lack of respect for diversity can lead to removal from the program.
