About the Clinic

A division of the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of Iowa, the Seashore Psychology Clinic offers a wide range of psychological services for individuals in the community.  The clinic is a training center for graduate students working toward their doctoral degrees in clinical science and is a setting for clinical research.  Graduate students conduct their assessments and therapy under the close supervision of the clinical science faculty and clinic staff psychologists.  Please note that all sessions are video-recorded. This is for supervision and training purposes and to ensure that all clients receive the highest-quality services.

Eligibility

The clinic accepts applications from individuals and referrals from various agencies and professionals.  Because cases are selected to meet the training needs of the clinic and the expertise of our faculty supervisors, it is sometimes necessary to refer clients to other agencies.

Nondiscrimination

This clinic does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, ethnic background, sex, or sexual orientation.

Services

The Seashore Psychology Clinic offers psychological assessments, individual psychotherapy, marital/couples therapy, stress and pain management, parent training, and assistance in dealing with various medical problems. The clinic also offers consultation to schools, courts, and other agencies.

Confidentiality

All information collected in the course of evaluations or therapy is confidential.  We are mandatory reporters of child and elder abuse, and are required to report suspected abuse or neglect to the Iowa Department of Human Services.  Threats of violence to self or others may require reporting, and if a court orders that records be released, we must abide by that order.

Procedures

When an individual calls the clinic to seek services or make a referral, a brief application is taken over the telephone. The clinic director determines whether the case is appropriate for the clinic and assigns the case to a specific graduate student and supervisor. The assigned student then contacts the client and makes an appointment for the initial interview.

All clients, including those seeking psychotherapy, undergo a psychological evaluation that includes interviews and a series of psychological tests. Clients receiving therapy are asked to participate in post-therapy and follow-up assessments to evaluate the effectiveness of treatment.
