Diversity The SSCP Diversity committee has been established with the dual goals of increasing the diversity of our membership, and considering how SSCP can promote clinical science approaches to diversity issues in clinical psychology. David Rosmarin
External Nominations Identify and nominate SSCP members (or other who aopt a clinical science perspective) for awards and committees Ben Hankin
Science in Practice Work toward making it easier for people to practice as clinical scientists, and help clinicians both consume and contribute to clinical science. Jackie Persons
International D&I Consider how SSCP can become more involved with dissemination of clinical science internationally (e.g., offering consultation, syllabi, training and virtual supervision in evidence-based approaches in regions where the practitioners typically have little opportunity to gain exposure to these approaches), and to consider opportunities to build more international connections and collaborations.

Public Education and Media The SSCP Public Education and Media Relations Committee will help disseminate information regarding SSCP’s core values to the general public. It is expected that a primary component of this committee’s work will be to help facilitate responses (e.g., letters to the editor, commentaries) to media messages pertaining to mental health in which there is a clear opportunity to educate the public regarding the importance of science in clinical psychology practice. The committee will consist of a Chair, a board liaison, and several volunteers (as determined by the Chair). The committee will be responsible for identifying articles in the media that may warrant SSCP comment. The committee will help identify relevant experts, perhaps from the SSCP membership, who are able to draft a response quickly. Other possible tasks for this committee may also include the development of relationships with members of the media who can serve as advocates for the science of clinical psychology, or the proactive generation of media messages for public education. Scott Lilienfeld
