What is a Psychology Training Clinic?

Overview of the MSU Psychological Clinic's Mission

The MSU Psychological Clinic aims to be 1) a state-of the-art training facility that provides high quality evidence-based care, 2) an accessible and reliable option for those seeking mental health services in the Greater Lansing area, and 3) a distinguished referral source for our colleagues in the community.

MSU clinical psychology doctoral students, as well as other trainees or students enrolled in practicum, receive intensive and specialized training through the Clinic. The MSU clinical psychology doctoral program believes in providing its trainees opportunities to work with clients from diverse backgrounds (e.g., ethnic/racial/economic/religious/sexual) across the lifespan (child/adult). Clinicians treat and assess clients with a range of specific disorders and problems. Individual, family, and group interventions are taught. Students also receive exposure to different theoretical orientations and multiple therapeutic techniques. 

All trainees are supervised by licensed psychologists who are also faculty at Michigan State University.
