About the Clinic

The Psychology Clinic in the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences at the University of Iowa offers a range of psychological services for individuals in the community.

The clinic is a training center for graduate students who are working toward their doctoral degrees in clinical psychology, and it is a setting for clinical research. Graduate students conduct most of the clinical work under the close supervision of the clinical psychology faculty and clinic staff psychologists.

Eligibility

The clinic accepts applications from individuals seeking services or who are referred from various agencies and professionals. Cases are selected to meet the training needs of the clinic and the expertise of the faculty supervisors, so it is sometimes necessary to refer individuals 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 Psychology Clinic offers the following psychological services: psychological assessments, individual psychotherapy, marital/couples therapy, stress and pain management, 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, so in some cases we may be 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 will determine the appropriateness of the case for this clinic and assign the case to a specific graduate student and supervisor. The assigned student will then contact the client and make 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 effects of treatment.
