Resources for Graduate Students and Residents:

Greater Access to Analytic Training

OPC has a 5-Year Diversity Grant – we are using this grant to bring in nationally recognized experts on issues of diversity and inclusion.  This grant also funds seats for people who work with diverse and under-represented populations and for clinicians who come from diverse backgrounds.   

Individuals who work at Cascadia Behavioral Health, Morrison Center, Avel Gordly Center for Healing, Multnomah County Mental Health and other community mental health centers can attend for free but must register as seating is limited.

Email [email protected] for more information on funded spots at CE events.

A grant-funded project is also underway to partner with and provide analytically informed clinical consultation on-site to Cascadia Behavioral Health clinicians. Keep an eye on the newsletter to receive updates on this project.

Lastly, to offer analytic training to a greater range of clinicians in Oregon, CE classes are available for distance students via Zoom program.  Contact [email protected] with interest in distance learning.
