Description
Individuals who belong to cultural/ethnic minorities or who identify as LGBTQ are underrepresented among U.S. psychologists. This trend has been conceptually linked to U.S. psychologists’ historical inattention to issues that are relevant to these populations. As the foundation of a broader effort to empirically explore the relation between psychology faculty perceptions and the experiences of psychology students who are either LGBTQ, belong to ethnocultural minority groups, or both, this study explored the training experiences of 8 undergraduate psychology majors or minors using both quantitative and qualitative approaches. Results point to significant student concerns regarding the inclusiveness of their training experiences both broadly and across four specific domains. This research provides an initial assessment of the perceptions of inclusiveness in their learning experiences among psychology undergraduate students belonging to two historically marginalized groups.
