Diversity Competence and Social Justice

Understanding and facilitating competence around diversity and social justice folds into the mission of our research. Dr. Sandage has trained, presented, and published on the need for competency regarding the diversity of people’s life experiences. Within the context of diversity and social context we are investigating several constructs including:

  • Relational Spirituality
  • Differentiation of self
  • Prayer
  • Gratitude
  • Hope
  • Training
  • Humility

Diversity is critical to the formation of our in-house research team and our collaborators as we week to engage with individuals from diverse personal backgrounds, and research, clinical, and theological experiences.
