Antioch University New England’s practitioner-scholar program prepares reflective clinicians who undertake multiple roles in their professional careers. Our graduates approach their practices with disciplined inquiry, taking on the role of “local clinical scientists” who view their work as a socially responsible action. Accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA)*, Antioch University New England’s Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology (PsyD) offers rigorous academic challenge and thorough clinical training.
Prepare for multiple roles.
The program prepares graduates for multiple roles in the expanding world of clinical psychology that includes not only therapy and assessment, but also supervision, management, applied research, administration, consultation, and public policy.
Commit to social responsibility.
Antioch University New England is renowned for its community of active, engaged, and socially conscious faculty and students. Our academic community emphasizes a social vision of clinical psychology committed to diversity and social justice, and responsive to the needs of the region and larger society.
Deepen clinical and research skills at three on-campus centers.
The Department of Clinical Psychology operates unique centers that benefit our students in a variety of ways.
The Psychological Services Center (PSC) is a community psychological clinic staffed by doctoral students. With excellent faculty supervision, students offer individual, couple, family, and group counseling, testing and assessment, and other services to serve area residents.
The Multicultural Center for Research and Practice focuses on issues of minority or marginalized individuals and groups in the context of social justice and multiculturalism. The Center provides consultation, outreach, and research, as well as other resources.
The Center for Research on Psychological Practice (CROPP) is a collaborative research group, bringing together doctoral students and faculty to look at emerging professional psychology issues. Applied clinical research skills and associated administrative and consultative roles of doctoral level psychologists are some of the areas explored.
In 25 years, our program has emerged as one of the leaders in PsyD education and training. My own scholarly and organizational work has emphasized an innovative vision of clinical education and training (Peterson, Peterson, Sticker, & Abrams, 1997), quality (six years of service on the APA Committee on Accreditation), the development of a superb, gifted faculty, and a social critique of much of conventional psychological and social theory. We are proud to provide a top-flight doctoral education and a profound life-changing experience. Roger L. Peterson, PhD, ABPP, Professor and Distinguished Senior Scholar, Department of Clinical Psychology
