Mentoras/es y Líderes: Mirando hacia el Futuro

Co-Chairs: Claudette “Claudia” Antuña, PsyD, MHSA LICSW [email protected].

The mission of this special interest group (SIG) is to promote opportunities for professionals and students in the field of Latinx psychology to engage in leadership and mentorship within and outside of NLPA.

Objectives: The limited representation and participation of Latinx psychologists and students in mental health organizations makes the need for a structured mentoring and leadership development a high priority within NLPA. The need for support, networking, and validation throughout a career are imperative to fostering success and representation of Latinxs in the field of psychology and enhance NLPA's visibility and presence in the broad arena of mental health. Latinx students and psychologists frequently have few role models and/or mentors to inform, guide, and/or assist them to successfully navigate the challenging process of becoming a psychologist.

The Mentoras/es y Líderes SIG seeks to be a vehicle from which to receive and provide feedback, support, and validation regarding professional development, transitional periods, research, tenure, etc. Through this forum, NLPA members will be able to have access to role models and accomplished leaders from across NLPA’s vast membership.
