About the AULA LGBT Psychology Specialization within the M.A. in Psychology program
A pioneer in social justice for over 150 years, Antioch University Los Angeles launched the nation‘s first graduate psychology specialization devoted to clinical psychology for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) individuals––thus opening a new frontier in LGBT liberation. Antioch University‘s graduate psychology coursework introduces learners to a wide range of theories and techniques that will prepare them to work in today‘s increasingly diverse society. In addition, learners are challenged to look inward and to arrive at new insights that will help them develop greater depth as psychotherapists. Dedicated to the spirit of LGBT liberation, the LGBT Psychology specialization helps students effectively address the destructive effects of internalized homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia that can be seen as primary causes for the depression, anxiety, substance abuse, unsafe sex, and other difficult challenges faced by many LGBT individuals. Colors is an initiative of the LGBT Specialization.
