Psychological Services Center
The Notre Dame Psychological Services Center is a new non-profit mental health service, training, and research center operated by the Department of Psychology at the University of Notre Dame. Services are provided by doctoral student therapists from Notre Dame’s Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program. As our student therapists are not yet licensed, all of the services they provide are supervised closely by licensed Notre Dame faculty members. Sessions are recorded, and the supervisor reviews the recordings to ensure that the students are providing the best care possible. The recordings are confidential and are used only to provide feedback to the students. The Clinical Psychology program at Notre Dame is accredited by the American Psychological Association.
