In the Counseling and Clinical Psychology Department
The Clinical Psychology Program provides rigorous training in both contemporary clinical science and clinical assessment and intervention and fosters the integration of these two objectives. The research programs of our faculty span a wide range, including studies of risk and resilience; clinical intervention in diverse sociocultural and geographic contexts; religious and spiritual development; altruism and caregiving; emotion and coping with trauma; suicidality; and psychotherapy process and outcome (see individual faculty web pages). Our on-site clinic, The Dean Hope Center, now functions as both a research and clinical training center. The Center is currently participating in a nationwide study of client demographics, risk factors, and mental and physical health status; it is also establishing a program to treat military veterans.
The Psychology in Education M.A. Program is ideal for students who wish to strengthen their applications to Ph.D. programs, complement their expertise in other fields with clinical principals, or to learn how to best employ their education in psychology locally and globally. Graduates of this program have gone on to effectively ameliorate mental suffering in their communities through research or practice.
The doctoral program in clinical psychology at Teachers College prepares students to become knowledgeable researchers and effective practitioners. Our graduates tend to seek positions in academia, research institutes, hospitals, and community agencies. Many perform multiple professional roles upon graduating, including working in hospitals, teaching or consulting part-time, continuing their research and writing, and/or beginning a private practice.
