The Mentorship of Ethnic Minorities in Professional Psychology

Donald R. Atkinson, Helen Neville, Antonio Casas

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Ethnic minority members of Divisions 12, 16, and 17 were surveyed regarding mentoring they received as students and novice professionals. No evidence was found that ethnic similarity between respondents and their mentors was related to ratings of protégé benefits. Some evidence was found of a relationship between ethnic similarity and overall evaluation ratings of the mentorship when the respondents were novice professionals. The need for European American professors and senior professionals to mentor ethnic minorities in professional psychology is discussed.
