In addition to her work as a professor, Joy M. Bustrum, Psy.D., serves as the director of diversity and is involved in coordination of the psychodynamic systems of psychotherapy concentration. Each summer, she co-leads a group of students to Kenya, East Africa, where she supervises them as they gain clinical hours working with HIV/AIDS orphans and adults in one of Africa’s largest slums. Bustrum maintains a private practice for adults in Pasadena, and her research interests address the intersection between relational psychoanalysis and multicultural theory and practice.
