Counseling Services

Adult Services

Individual counseling is provided for clients who are experiencing interpersonal difficulties at home or at work. Problems such as depression, anxiety, phobias, sleep disturbances, adjustment problems, and stress-related difficulties are commonly treated. The center also has a state-of-the-art program on the treatment of problem gambling. Additionally, marital/couples' therapy is provided for couples who are experiencing difficulties related to conflict resolution, spouse abuse, sexual dysfunctions, or other problems requiring joint intervention.

Child Services

Services are provided for children experiencing difficulties at school or at home. Services include individual counseling, consultation, and other interventions for use in the school and/or home. Center staff who specialize in dealing with childhood problems work closely with children, their parents or guardians, and school personnel in the management of the child's difficulties.

Family Services

Counseling is provided for problems requiring family interventions. Therapists trained in family therapy provide counseling for problems resulting from interpersonal conflicts, blended families' issues, and adjustment to divorce.

Health Psychology

Individual and group counseling is provided to aid clients in such activities as smoking cessation, weight loss, pain and headache management, adjustment to chronic illness and traumatic loss, and stress reduction. Therapists trained in medical psychology and cognitive-behavioral interventions work with individuals experiencing problems in such areas to promote a more healthy lifestyle.

Specialty Services

Psychoeducational Evaluation

Services include the evaluation of intelligence, achievement, personality, psychomotor, and other skills and abilities in children, adolescents, and adults. The staff work closely with school personnel in the evaluation of children suspected of being eligible for special education (e.g. children with learning disabilities, mental retardation, giftedness, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, behavioral disorders). In conjunction with The University of Memphis Office for Students with Disabilities, the Center provides evaluation and consultation for students experiencing academic problems in college.

Elimination Disorders

Screening and treatment are provided for children with problems of enuresis or encopresis. The emphasis of the program is on training parents to deal with the frustrations of soiling or bedwetting, and to implement behavioral treatment procedures for the child in the home.
