NMSU to host annual multicultural research symposium

Counseling psychology doctoral candidates will present their research at the 10th annual Multicultural Research Symposium from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 26, in the Senate Gallery of New Mexico State University's Corbett Center Student Union.

University Chicago counseling psychologist professor Elizabeth Vera also is scheduled to present "Psychologists as Agents of Social Justice" at 6:15 p.m. Vera teaches classes in prevention, human development, adolescence, family therapy and multicultural issues.

"With multicultural research, students have a better understanding of a person's sociocultural background. Understanding that will help them provide ethical and effective treatment for their clients," said Eve Adams, assistant professor and training director of the counseling psychology program in NMSU's Department of Counseling and Education Psychology.

A reception will be held at 7 p.m., and students will display their research findings in a poster format.
