The Psychological Services Center (PSC) is the primary training site for doctoral students in the Clinical/Community division of the Psychology Department – and an integral part of the Clinical Science model, which emphasizes the scientific and empirical grounding of psychological interventions. As part of this model, advanced doctoral students provide psychological services under the close supervision of faculty members with expertise in their fields.

Innovative Services

The PSC has been recognized for its innovative efforts to deliver psychological services to traditionally underserved populations and currently has several community outreach programs funded by a $113,000 Community Mental Health Board Grant, including:

  • The Family Advocacy Project for low income African-American families and the Effective Black Parenting Program
  • The Community Advocacy Project for domestic violence survivors
  • The JDC (Juvenile Detention Center) Project

Cutting-Edge Treatment and Assessment

The PSC is also a Clinic (located at 505 E. Green St.) where community residents receive treatment for psychological disorders from specialized clinical teams. The clinical teams utilize state-of-the-art empirically validated interventions to work with severe disorders such as anxiety, phobia, post-traumatic stress, personality disorders, severe depression, and other serious mental health problems. In addition, the PSC serves as one of the leading providers of comprehensive neuropsychological assessments in Illinois, attracting clients from around the state.
