ASIA contributes to the changemaker experience by sharing their enthusiasm and dedication toward cultural sensitivity and global awareness. Many members of ASIA went to Bali, Indonesia in the summer of 2014 with Dr. Ronn Johnson. There they studied risk assessment and trauma from a cultural perspective. "Let the world change you and you can change the world (Motorcycle Diaries)" was their motto. The Balinese changed our way of seeing clinical work from a spiritually collectivist perspective. Are you ready to be a changemaker?
First of all, Congrats to Ruthie for receiving the CLASS Award at the Diversity Banquet! Her hard work and contributions to the school qualified her for this nomination. I hope next year another one of our members can receive this award as well!
Our second congratulations is to Ruthie Inacay and Harry Dixon for being 2014 USD graduates! They both graduated with M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Best wishes to the both of you :)
