    Putting Down “Roots”: PsyD Program is Here to Stay

    国产偷拍视频The next time you walk by Brogan Hall, look for the young kukui nut tree on the building’s mauka end. 

    国产偷拍视频The tree — traditionally a symbol of enlightenment and spiritual guidance — was planted to celebrate the new permanent home of the Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) in Clinical Psychology degree program at the Hawaii School of Professional Psychology at Chaminade University.

    The program’s faculty, staff and students attended the tree planting on November 6.

    Dr. Sean Scanlan, director of Chaminade’s Psy.D. program, said the kukui nut is the perfect representation of the Clinical Psychology program at Chaminade. He added that the tree was planted following a suggestion from a student in a place where it will have lots of room to grow.

    国产偷拍视频“The kukui tree was used by Native Hawaiians for candlelight and has become an emblem of the importance of seeking out opportunities for personal and academic growth,” Scanlan said. “As a symbol of enlightenment, the kukui tree we’ve planted at Brogan Hall will continue to grow and thrive in the years and decades ahead just as the Clinical Psychology program will flourish at Chaminade into the future.”

    During the small ceremony, the students added soil to cover the kukui tree’s roots as a symbol of being the basis for the program to grow. The Psy.D. faculty and staff then poured water from an ipu国产偷拍视频 as a symbol of their role in instructing, mentoring and supporting the students.

    国产偷拍视频In March, Chaminade University announced it would host the Hawaii School of Professional Clinical Psychology Psy.D. program following the abrupt closure of Argosy University. Chaminade immediately welcomed approximately 100 students and faculty members into the program as it worked to ensure a seamless transition for those working toward their doctoral degree – and those helping them get there.

    Today, the Psy.D. at Chaminade is a five-year, intensive program designed to build students’ skills and knowledge as they train to become clinical psychologists. Early courses in the program provide the foundation for the field, while later classes focus on therapy, research training and an internship.

    Dr. Lynn Babington, Chaminade president, said serving as a hub for high-quality mental health instruction – and a source for excellent mental health providers who will serve their communities – is in line with the University’s mission to work every day to change the world for the better.

    国产偷拍视频“The planting of the kukui nut tree at Brogan Hall is a powerful symbol that underscores our commitment to ensuring the Psy.D. program at Chaminade continues to grow and meet the mental health needs of our state,” she said. “We are excited about the next steps in building out this program and can’t wait to see how psychologists trained at Chaminade impact people’s lives in positive ways.”

    Director of Campus Ministry

    You might not think surfing and campus ministry go together.

    Jeremiah Carter

    国产偷拍视频But that probably means you haven’t met Jeremiah Carter yet.

    Carter is the new director of Campus Ministry at Chaminade, and he says one of his priorities this academic year is to launch outreach activities that attract more members of the University community.

    “I’m looking to try some new activities that incorporate the beauty of creation and spirituality,” he said.

    国产偷拍视频So to Carter, a campus ministry-sponsored surfing outreach event makes a lot of sense. “We’re fortunate to have strong traditional faith values and growing at Chaminade,” he added. “And we hope to incorporate that in creative ways as they relate to the modern world.”

    国产偷拍视频It’s little surprise, then, that one of Carter’s favorite quotes is: “New times call for new methods.”

    国产偷拍视频Those words are attributed to none other than Father Chaminade, the University’s namesake.

    Since joining Chaminade just before the start the 2019-20 academic year, Carter says he’s been encouraged and inspired by how departments and programs across campus seek to offer students a “holistic experience,” focusing on not just academics but on personal and spiritual growth, too.

    国产偷拍视频Carter said he was particularly moved by Chaminade’s new student orientation for this fall, which included a welcome in the Mystical Rose Oratory and was followed by an ecumenical prayer. “It was for all new students to Chaminade. And with so many of us working together, I believe it was a great example to them in the spirit of building community that we strive for here,” he said.

    国产偷拍视频Carter didn’t have to travel far to accept his new position at Chaminade. He comes to the University from Damien Memorial School, where he was a religion instructor. Before that, Carter was a seminarian and earned two master’s degrees at Indiana’s Saint Menrad School of Theology.

    Looking ahead, Carter said he’s excited to broaden the impact of Campus Ministry.

    国产偷拍视频One way he and his colleagues are building community: By blessing departments, offices, student residence halls and other gathering spots on campus. He’s even thinking about a “blessing of the cars.”

    “My personal goal is to build, inspire and nurture a supportive ecumenical community of believers, strive to transform students grounded in Catholic tradition and help prepare them to make lasting contributions for our local and global communities,” Carter said. “I’m blessed to be here.”
