Psy.D. - Clinical Psychology
The Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) program is designed to prepare students for the general practice of professional clinical psychology with a particular focus on socially responsible practice that includes education and training regarding the broader social and systemic factors that contribute to human dysfunction (e.g., poverty, oppression, marginalization) and methods for ameliorating these broader factors (e.g. primary prevention and policy change). The program follows the scholar-practitioner model of training and education developed by the National Council of Schools and Programs of Professional Psychology. This model identifies as objectives the development of knowledge, skills, and values in seven core competency areas: relationship, assessment, intervention, research and evaluation, consultation and education, management and supervision, and individual and cultural diversity. These competencies are based upon a strong education in the foundations, knowledge base, and science of psychology.
