Union Institute and University’s Doctorate in Psychology Program Welcomes Learners from Across the Country

Five day meeting will feature well-known clinical psychologist Rachel Hare-Mustin

BRATTLEBORO - Union Institute & University’s (UI&U) doctorate in psychology program (the “Psy.D.” program) will welcome first and second year student cohorts from Michigan to Virginia and parts of New England and the Midwest to Brattleboro for its annual academic meeting beginning August 27 at the Marlboro Technology Center downtown. The students will join together for five days of coursework, seminars and discussions. The meeting will kick-off with a dinner featuring guest speaker, noted clinical psychologist Rachel T. Hare-Mustin, Ph.D, hosted by the Marina Restaurant.

Dr. Hare-Mustin has served as a faculty member of Harvard, the University of Pennsylvania, and Villanova University. She has published widely on gender issues, ethical practice, and feminist theory and postmodern theory. She has earned numerous awards for her work in theory, research, and practice from organizations including the American Psychological Association Divisions of Psychotherapy, Family Psychology, as well as by a Presidential Citation from the APA.

Union’s Psy.D. program combines the cohesion and mutual support of face-to-face education with the flexibility of online courses. The program is consistent with UI&U’s mission, and integrates social justice into all its courses, emphasizing multiculturalism in clinical practice and the psychologist’s role as an agent of social change. Learners are trained to be culturally competent clinicians, able to provide mental health services to individuals, families, groups and organizations. The program utilizes a distributed learning model, offering flexibility to working adults who need to balance career, family, and other responsibilities.

Union Institute and University’s Psy.D. program is currently accepting applications for Fall 2009. For more information contact: Diane Robinson, Admissions Psy.D., 802.254.0152 x 8408 or
