At the Psychological Services Center, general outpatient psychotherapeutic and psychological assessment services are provided to the individuals and families of the greater Memphis metropolitan area. The Center’s mission is threefold:

  1) train future psychologists,

  2) provide affordable help to those in need of psychological service, and

  3) promote research to support the empirical bases of psychology practice.

Students in the Clinical and School Psychology Doctoral programs, as well as those in the specialist program in School Psychology are the professional staff of the Center.  Our training faculty, which includes our Psychology faculty and Adjunct faculty chosen for their professional expertise, closely supervise the services provided by these advanced graduate students.

The direct result of this training is affordable psychological services for the citizens of Memphis and the surrounding communities. The Center is one of the only low-cost psychology clinics in the city. Every year hundreds of individuals and families who could not otherwise afford psychological assistance receive quality services at reduced fee.

Finally, the Center is dedicated to applied research. All clinical grants and research projects where clinical services are delivered use the Center as the service delivery setting. Thus, the center’s efforts are closely associated with the Psychology Department’s focus on applied psychological research and the empirical-basis of psychology practice.
