The School-Clinical Child Psychology Program’s mission is to provide doctoral-level training that integrates school and clinical psychology. While this training focuses primarily on children, adolescents and families, students also work with adults in individual, parenting or couples treatments. Graduates are competent to deliver psychological and psychoeducational services in schools, medical centers, mental health settings, early childhood centers and other related environments. The Program requires students to understand and adhere to ethical and professional standards while applying their knowledge of developmental psychology, psychotherapy, education, assessment, developmental disabilities, family and systems theory, psychopathology, measurement, individual differences, neuropsychology, and school psychology. Required practica experiences include: year-long psychodynamic psychotherapy treatment, year-long CBT treatment through our clinic and conducting psychological, psychoeducational and neuropsychological evaluations. 

In addition, students complete 3500 hours of externship and internship experiences in educational and mental health settings across the New York-New Jersey-Connecticut area. Program alumni work across the lifespan in schools, medical centers, mental health facilities, related agencies and in private practice.
