Since 1852, Antioch University has had a significant history of dedication to social change, reform, and activism. Antioch University Seattle has developed a comprehensive method of weaving social justice principles into teaching, training, and research into its PsyD curriculum. Each training year involves different methods of engagement that involves the student in social justice training activities. This training has a reputation with students as seriously challenging and disrupting their personal worldviews and status quo and has resulted in many difficult discussions and dramatic teaching moments.
