The Culture & Mental Health Lab is comprised of graduate students in the combined Clinical, Counseling Psychology doctoral program at Utah State University and undergraduate students in the Psychology Department. Lab members are engaged in independent research in an interdependent context. Project content is in parenting, cultural values, microaggressions, and evidence-based interventions. Students are expected to be productive as a result of independent motivation and commitment, engaged mentoring, and proactive collaboration and support from a talented peer group, multiple faculty in the rural/multicultural emphasis area, as well as from family and loved ones.
Cultivo una Rosa Blanca (Verso XXXIX) by José Martí
Cultivo una rosa blanca / I have a white rose to tend
en junio como en enero / In July as in January;
para el amigo sincero / I give it to the true friend
que me da su mano franca. / Who offers his frank hand to me.
Y para el cruel que me arranca / And for the cruel one whose blows
el corazón con que vivo, / Break the heart by which I live,
cardo ni ortiga cultivo; / Thistle nor thorn do I give:
cultivo la rosa blanca. / For him, too, I have a white rose.
