The Psychological Services Center offers specialty clinics in the following areas: Anxiety Research & Treatment Team, Mindfulness in Health Team, Integrative Intervention Team, Child with ADHD and Related Difficulties (CARDS) Team, and Geropsychological Assessment & Intervention Team. Treatment in these specialty clinics is offered on an individual, couple, family, or group basis, as appropriate.
Anxiety Research & Treatment Team
The Anxiety Research and Treatment Center is a specialty clinic offering state-of-the-art assessment and treatment of anxiety disorders throughout the life span. Services are provided for children, adolescents, and adults experiencing difficulties with anxiety such as panic attacks, obsessions, compulsions, social anxiety, fears (such as public speaking, going to school, separation anxiety, etc.) and worries.
Mindfulness in Health Team
This program integrates clinical practice and research based on mindfulness, an acceptance-based intervention model. We utilize Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness-based psychotherapy in working both individually and in groups with clients facing a wide range of challenging life circumstances, including medical conditions, depression, anxiety, and stress.
Eating Disorder Specialty Team
This program uses empirically based treatments to address eating disorders, disordered eating, weight and appearance based concerns, body dissatisfaction, and appearance/weight related anxiety. We specialize in family-based therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy. We use a team approach where clients are matched with a therapist, as well as a dietician and psychiatrist. Meal support groups are also available for anyone needing extra support around mealtimes.
Integrative Intervention Team
Integrative intervention draws on a broad range of evidence-based and evidence-supported strategies to address cognitive, emotional, and interpersonal difficulties encountered in a variety of life settings. Integrative intervention is integrative in three ways: 1) across disordered and normal functioning, 2) across types of intervention (CBT, cognitive remediation therapy, mindfulness, narrative, etc), and 3) across clinical theories and practice. The over-arching conceptual framework is that clinical issues are best addressed in the simultaneous consideration of cognitive, affective, and behavioral interactions with the therapist.
Geropsychological Assessment and Intervention Team
This team provides a variety of clinical services to older adults and their families including assessment of late life cognitive problems including Alzheimer's disease (AD), Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and other mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, and grief. This can include a full neuropsychological evaluation or a brief screening for cognitive problems. We also provide psychological services to older adults including individuals recently diagnosed with dementia (such as AD). This includes psychotherapy for depression, anxiety, and other psychological concerns associated with receiving a dementia diagnosis. We also offer psychotherapy for caregivers of people with dementia.
