Diversity and Non-Discrimination Policy

Solutions values and embraces diversity. It believes that a diverse training environment contributes to the depth and overall quality of an internship program. Having diverse faculty and interns brings richness and depth to the training experience and promotes personal growth. Solutions therefore welcomes applicants from diverse backgrounds. It provides equal opportunity to all intern applicants and does not discriminate because of a person’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or any other factor that is unrelated to the success of a psychology intern. Prospective interns are evaluated individually based on their previous training, practicum experiences, and fit with the internship. Requests for accommodation should be initiated through the Training Director.

Solutions is committed to creating a positive workplace environment for its staff and interns alike, and one in which all feel included, respected, safe, and treated with equality. Solutions strives to increase awareness about diversity and promote understanding of, appreciation for, and comfort with multi-cultural experience.

In keeping with APA’s guidelines, cultural and individual diversity is an expected competency for psychology interns, and multiple experiences are provided over the training year to ensure that interns are personally supported and well-trained in diversity. Solutions’ psychology internship program ensures that interns demonstrate knowledge, awareness, and skills needed to work with diverse individuals. Opportunities for diversity training are blended in throughout the training year.
