Development and maintenance of our multicultural competence is an APA ethical mandate. Researchers have identified recent changes in how multicultural issues are discussed and addressed in both real time and via social media. These changes can seem overwhelming to busy educators/clinicians and set up the possibility of “diversity burnout”. Susan McGroarty, Ph.D., ABPP, is the Director of Behavioral Medicine at Inspira Health Network in Woodbury, NJ, specializing in Integrated Healthcare with special expertise in Complex Trauma and Human Diversity, will facilitate discussion on the topic of new diversity at CORA for professional development credit.
Prior to joining Inspira, Dr. McGroarty was a tenured Associate Professor of Psychology in the PsyD program at Chestnut Hill College. She has written articles and given numerous presentations on topics related to trauma and diversity and has served as Co-chair, Chair, and invited member for regional and national psychological organizations. An ardent advocate of human rights, Dr. McGroarty mentored the development of a Human Rights Forum in the doctoral program which was recognized at the APA Convention in 2014. Dr. McGroarty maintains a small private practice in Haddonfield, NJ
