PsyD Students Collaborate with the Washington State Department of Corrections
Congratulations to AUS PsyD Chair Dr. Jude Bergkamp and his students. After Dr. Bergkamp was asked by the Washington State Department of Corrections to provide training on implicit bias for their diversity committee, his forensic psychology research group took on the task. They conducted a comprehensive literature review and developed a relevant training.
On Nov. 14, Dr. Bergkamp and students Stephanie Bowser, Kelle Agassiz, and Amber Silverwood provided the training at the DOC headquarters. Future collaboration with the Department is in the works, with possible research on the application of implicit bias in all aspects of correctional service.
