SRP Open Letter Supporting Academic Freedom

Recent legislative efforts in several US states (e.g., Florida, Ohio, Texas) that impinge on academic freedom to teach about marginalization related to race, gender identity, and sexual orientation have greatly concerned us. These prohibitions contradict empirical data and consensus best practices that guide our approach to clinical training, education, and research in psychopathology. We denounce the effort to suppress academic freedom and rights of marginalized individuals and renew our commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion as stated in our SRP Solidarity and Action statement.

Please see our full open letter. If you would like to express your support, we welcome you to sign the letter.
