Our Program

The aim of the Clinical Psychology doctoral program at City College is to train clinical psychologists who are competent to work with mental health problems on all levels, from the individual to the community. This aim is implemented through training in theory, research and practice, which includes assessment, diagnosis, individual and group psychotherapy. Students are trained to work with children, adolescents, and adults, as well as with community groups and agencies. 

The Clinical Psychology doctoral program is based on a scholar practitioner model. This model emphasizes the mutual and reciprocal influence of scholarship and practice and aims to generate new theories, new research, and new modes of clinical work. Our program has a strong commitment to psychodynamic thinking and social justice, although many other theoretical points of view are represented and studied carefully. We are a diverse community that fosters a high standard of open-mindedness. Interdisciplinary thinking is valued in our program, and the faculty have notably broad and wide-ranging itnerests. An important emphasis for us is the integration of a psychodynamic perspective with other theoretical approaches and modalities and with research in areas such as developmental psychology, personality, cognition, neuropsychology and neuroscience. 

Our program's clinic, which is called "The Psychological Center," our classrooms, and faculty offices are located on the 8th floor of the North Academic Center at City College, where most program activities take place. The Program is part of the Department of Psychology at the College, as well as part of the Colin Powell School for global leadership.
