The goal of the PsyD Program at Roosevelt University is to train skilled practitioners who are able to diagnose and treat psychological problems. Our practitioner-scholar program seeks to produce clinical psychologists who demonstrate several essential core competencies, including the ability to
- accurately assess client problems by combining knowledge of psychopathology with the ability to establish rapport and work with clients of diverse backgrounds;
- conceptualize ways in which developmental processes, personality, and environment contribute to clients’ psychological health and distress;
- select, implement, and evaluate appropriate psychological interventions using a variety of theoretical perspectives and therapeutic modalities;
- recognize the influences of individual and cultural differences in assessment, case conceptualization, treatment planning and implementation;
- base their knowledge and practice on the historical and scientific traditions of psychology;
- work productively and professionally with others;
- conduct their clinical and academic work in a manner consistent with rules of ethics, standards of practice, and legal requirements.
Graduates will also have the capability to critique, design, and execute research focused on clinical problems and services and to articulately present the results of their scholarship to others. Interested and qualified students, after completing a master’s degree, may teach undergraduate psychology courses with the guidance of the Instructor Development course. Our university home also allows students to enhance their psychological training with relevant experiences from other disciplines. Discover more about the program at www.roosevelt.edu/psychology.
