The Psychological Clinic provides an invaluable training experience to our students who, through a combination of course work and supervision by our clinical faculty, have the opportunity to gain experience in delivering individual psychotherapy for children and adults, marital and couples counseling, family therapy, intellectual, educational, or developmental testing, as well as personality and psychosocial assessment. Licensed clinical psychologists closely supervise all of these experiences. The primary theoretical orientation of our faculty is cognitive-behavioral, though training experiences in other theoretical orientations are available (e.g., interpersonal, behavioral, etc.).
From their first semester in our Clinical Training Program, doctoral students are engaged in practicum training experiences in the clinic. Typically, the practicum experience consists of weekly group and individual supervision with an assigned faculty supervisor. All students are required to conduct supervised psychological assessments, including intellectual assessments, learning disorder assessments, assessments of emotional and behavioral problems, and objective personality assessments.
