DEADLINE: May 1, 2010

Section VI (Clinical Psychology of Ethnic Minorities) of Division 12 in the American Psychological Association (APA) is pleased to announce the annual call for nominations for its Samuel M. Turner MENTOR Award.

MENTOR stands for Minority Education, Nurturing, Training, Organizational advocacy, and Research. The MENTOR Award honors a psychology faculty member who has demonstrated a commitment to teaching and training clinical psychologists to work more effectively with ethnic minority clinical populations. The nominee should be someone with significant accomplishments in at least two of the following areas:

  • Education and Professional Development. The nominee has been actively involved in facilitating the education and professional development of ethnic minority clinical psychology students. For example, assisting ethnic minority students or trainees in getting their work accepted for presentation or publication, winning awards and honors, obtaining research or travel grants, and securing professional positions.
  • Nurturing. The nominee has provided leadership in creating a professional climate that is supportive of ethnic/cultural diversity. For example, organizing a Multicultural Brown Bag seminar series, social/cultural events that promote ethnic/cultural diversity, or mentoring activities that enhance the development of ethnic minority students or trainees.
  • Training. The nominee has developed curricula that enhance the training of clinical psychologists for work with ethnic/racial minority populations, or has improved a training program’s curriculum on multicultural issues.
  • Organizational advocacy. The nominee has worked extensively within an organization or in creating a new one to increase ethnic/cultural recruitment and retention. For example, activities designed to increase the number of ethnic minority students and graduates of a psychology training program, increase the number of ethnic/racial minority faculty in a psychology training program, or to establish an ethnic/racial minority student organization.
  • Research. The nominee has served as an advisor, an actively involved committee member, or a research supervisor (thesis, dissertations, postdoctoral research) in activities that advance the field of clinical psychology of ethnic minorities.

The MENTOR Award recipient will be honored and given a plaque during the Division 12 Award Ceremony at the 2010 APA Convention in San Diego.
