A major focus of the clinical child concentration is to teach students how to conduct research examining the effectiveness of interventions and assessment instruments in clinical populations. This concentration emphasizes an understanding of developmental psychopathology and its role in child and adolescent intervention, assessment, and research. In addition to working with the core faculty, students will also be trained by practicing clinical child psychologists and pediatricians working as adjunct faculty members in our training concentration. There are diverse assessment and treatment practicum training opportunities for students enrolled in the clinical child psychology concentration.
