The Centre for Diversity in Counselling and Psychotherapy is an interdisciplinary centre dedicated to research and development of multicultural and diversity issues in counselling and psychotherapy, focussing particularly on the stigmatized social identities of gender, race, sexual orientations, class, disabilities, religion, and age. One of the key objectives of the Centre is to facilitate research and scholarship on the integration and intersection of various marginalised identities so that counselling and psychotherapy can be conducted through a paradigm of multiple identities irrespective of particular counselling approaches. The Centre is well positioned to undertake this mission as the majority of the faculty are already undertaking research and teaching in the various areas of diversity, and this expertise forms the basis for further research through funded and non-funded projects. The interdisciplinary nature of the Centre and the engagement of faculty collaboration promote a rich environment and a creative clinical niche within which graduate students can be nurtured. This exposure to discourses of cultural differences juxtaposed with a variety of holistic approaches to psychotherapy forms a critical base for the study of diversity in counselling.
