The Counseling Psychology Training Clinic (CPTC)
was awarded the 2018 Association of Psychology Training Clinics Clinic Innovations Award. The award is given annually to recognize innovation in psychology training clinics and/or competency-training more broadly. Dr. Stephanie Graham, Clinical Associate Professor and the Director of the CPTC, accepted the award at the APTC Annual Meeting in March 2018. The CPTC was recognized for its partnership with the Division of Diversity, Equity and Educational Achievement to increase access to culturally-responsive psychological services for underrepresented students at UW-Madison. The 4-year partnership included funding for two CP graduate student clinicians who provided direct mental health support services to DDEEA students at the CPTC as well as support services such as workshops and consultation.  Read more about ​the award here.

CP Stance on Campus Hate/Bias Incidents -
Faculty, students, and staff in the Department of Counseling Psychology work hard to create a diverse and inclusive learning community with an emphasis on training culturally competent practitioners at the Master’s and doctoral levels.  We have been distressed to witness the escalation of hate/bias-driven speech and actions, both nationally and here at UW.  We are committed to creating a culture of inclusion in the department and the university, and to a vision of education that includes affirmation and openness to the breadth of human diversity.  We endorse the following statements, on creating an inclusive campus climate:
