The UQ Psychology Clinic has been providing high-quality mental health services to the community for over twenty-five years. We provide psychological assistance that is both caring and supportive.
The Clinic offers psychological assessment and therapy services to people of all ages, including children, adolescents, adults and older adults.
Treatment at the UQ Psychology Clinic is provided by intern psychologists who are currently undertaking advanced postgraduate study in Clinical Psychology (including Masters, Professional Doctorate, and Doctor of Philosophy degrees). All intern psychologists are provisionally registered with the Queensland Registration Board, and receive regular professional supervision from fully qualified, senior Clinical Psychologists.
Intern psychologists at the UQ Psychology Clinic specialise in the treatment of child, adolescent and adult psychological difficulties and disorders. Intern psychologists at the Clinic are trained to provide a variety of ‘evidence-based’ therapies, meaning that research has demonstrated that the therapy effectively reduces psychological difficulties or distress in most clients.
The UQ Psychology Clinic also conducts research aimed at improving our understanding of psychological difficulties and how best to treat them. Occasionally a referred client may be offered the opportunity to participate in research projects. At no time are treatment services contingent on clients agreeing to participate in research, and all information gathered for research purposes remains confidential.
The Centre for Health Outcomes, Innovation and Clinical Education (CHOICE) provides support for research projects and dissemination of outcomes in the School of Psychology’s clinical training program, for postgraduate students as well as academic staff.
