APA Guidelines on Race and Ethnicity in Psychology
The 2002 US Census estimated that by the year 2050 the U.S. Population of non-Hispanic Whites would shrink to about 47%. The most recent population estimates from the U.S Census Bureau (2016) state that racial composition is steadily diversifying. The 2016 American Community Survey found that about 84% of the active psychology workforce is white which is an overrepresentation compared to the national population, which is 76% white (2007–16: Demographics of the Psychology Workforce, APA Center for Workforce Studies, 2018). The American Psychological Association (APA) used this data to help develop and shape the way in which populations are represented and treated in order to help best treat and diversify psychological clinical treatment for racially and ethnically diverse patients and communities.

Race and Ethnicity in Psychology

For more information and data on Racial and ethno-Cultural Responsiveness for psychological practice, please review APA’s 2019 Guidelines on Race and Ethnicity in Psychology.

This document provides data and guidance for the education, training, clinical practice, research and other forms of psychological practices for the development of knowledge, awareness and respectful/ appropriate treatment of racial and ethnically diverse individuals and communities to promote health, well-being and equity for racial and ethnocultural differences in treatment.
