A more diverse population in the United States calls for the inclusion of REC minority populations in research to improve treatment and clinician cultural awareness. A content analysis is proposed to analyze the inclusion level of REC minority groups in the Journal of Clinical Psychology. Five questions are explored to organize and present the findings of the content analysis. Results demonstrate the low level of inclusion of REC minority groups as well as congruence between most studied topics and each REC minority group in the Journal of Clinical Psychology. These results should encourage researchers and clinicians to push for more inclusion of REC minority groups in research to accommodate the increasingly diverse population of the United States. This study should be used as evidence that demonstrates the low level of inclusion of REC minorities among research and clinical treatment. Additionally, this study should demonstrate the importance of REC inclusion among both research and treatment.
