The UWM Psychology Clinic is a facility for training, service, and research at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. The clinic is operated by the UWM Clinical Psychology training program.
Staff: The Psychology Clinic staff is comprised of doctoral students in the clinical psychology PhD training program. All graduate students receive their first three years of supervised experience in the Clinic, and more advanced graduate students may elect to continue to see clients in the Clinic as well. Student therapists are closely supervised by the Clinical Psychology faculty and staff. All therapy rooms have adjoining observation rooms for live observation and recording of therapy and assessment sessions, to enable this supervision.
The Clinic provides students with a number of valuable state of the art resources to assist them in their clinical training. These include reference books; training audio and videotapes; camcorders, monitors and VCRs; computers with assessment scoring programs and access to the Internet; and a number of psychological and neuropsychological assessment instruments.
Services: The Psychology Clinic provides psychotherapy as well as psychological and neuropsychological assessments with adolescents and adults who are residents of Milwaukee and the surrounding community, as well as to UWM students, faculty, and staff. Individuals who are appropriate to the training level and needs of student therapists are accepted as clients. Transfers from practitioners outside of the UWM Psychology Clinic should be discussed directly with the Psychology Clinic Director prior to referral.
In addition, the Psychology Clinic houses several specialty therapy clinics for specific populations, which include:
- Traumatic Stress and Anxiety Disorder
- Eating Disorders Clinic
- Cognitive Behavioral Psychotherapy Clinic
- Adult Psychological Assessment
- Psychoeducational Evaluation Clinic
- Child Neuropsychology Specialty Clinic
- Learning Disability Clinic
The Clinic also functions as a research clinic. Current research includes the development of assessment and treatment protocols that can be empirically tested, and the evaluation of therapy outcomes. The clinic also participates in efforts to raise mental health awareness such as hosting a National Eating Disorder Awareness Week event.
Please note, as a training clinic, some clients will be better served by being referred to agencies that can provide the type of help needed. Therefore, on some occasions, clients are referred to other community agencies.
In addition, we do not provide walk-in, court-mandated, psychiatric consultation/medication, or emergency/crisis services after regular clinic hours. In case of emergency, call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room. Please see our Community and Crisis Resources Page for additional options.
Hours: Clients are seen by appointment only.
The clinic is closed on weekends and holidays and has a more limited schedule during the summer months.
Fees: All clinic fees are based a sliding scale and fees for services provided by graduate students range from $10 – $50 depending on client income and need. There is a $10 flat fee rate for all screenings. We do not accept insurance or Medicaid/Medicare.
