Center for Psychological Services

Mission

The Center for Psychological Services at St. John’s University has a tripartite mission. The Center serves the Psychology Department as a training site for all of its graduate students in Clinical and School Psychology programs. The Center strives to provide the highest quality psychological care to the ethnically, racially, religiously, and economically diverse Queens community by delivering evidence-based psychological services at a modest cost. Services include psychological and psycho-educational testing and therapy services for children, adolescents, and adults. In addition, the Center carries out a number of research projects and facilitates research opportunities for students and faculty.

Description

The St. John’s University Center for Psychological Services was established in 1986 with the dual mission of providing psychological services to community residents and training opportunities to graduate psychology students in the University’s Clinical and School Psychology programs. All services are offered at low to moderate costs on a sliding scale basis and are provided by the psychology graduate students under the close supervision of licensed psychology faculty.

In 2006, the Center moved from the Queens campus to its current location in the community, about one mile west of the campus on Union Turnpike. It is a state-of-the-art facility with eleven private, comfortable treatment rooms, a spacious, attractive reception area, classroom areas, a research wing, and administrative offices. The Center offers a full range of psychological services for children, adolescents, adults and families, including individual consultation and psychotherapy, psychoeducational and personality assessments, family therapy, group therapy, and school-based services.

Currently, there are almost one hundred graduate students in training at the Center, representing diverse cultural backgrounds. They are supervised by about 20 full-time and adjunct faculty members of the University’s Department of Psychology.The pursuit of knowledge through research is also a goal at the Center. In order to serve the training needs of the doctoral programs, the Center provides psychology students and faculty members with opportunities to conduct research in order to contribute to the advancement of knowledge in the field.
