Child & Adolescent Track


The Child/Adolescent Track/Concentration within the School of Professional Psychology combines academic and clinical training experiences designed to prepare students for work with child and adolescent populations. The track provides students with a way to cluster their training through a defined curriculum programs of research, and clinical practica that solidify core knowledge in the diagnosis, treatment, and assessment of children and adolescents.

It is our goal to train outstanding practitioner-scholars who can deliver and/or develop cutting-edge empirically-driven and validated treatments for this unique population.
