The Clinical Psychology program from The New School is one of the few clinical programs that combine a psychoanalytic emphasis with adherence to the scientist-practitioner model.
It also recognizes the importance of understanding the roles of culture and context in mediating healthy psychological development, psychopathology, and psychotherapeutic change.
The mission of the Clinical Psychology doctoral program at The New School for Social Research is to train scientist-practitioners who:
- Are competent at clinical practice, including diagnostic assessment, case formulation, and intervention, and case formulation;
- Are engaged in contributing to scholarship in all its forms;
- Are grounded in the broader field of scientific psychology and can integrate scientific knowledge, clinical research and practice;
- Students are expected to take courses in clinical theory and technique, diagnostic testing, evidence-based practice, culture and ethnicity, ethics, and statistics, among others
- Students must also complete a practicum at the program's training site, the Safran Center for Psychological Services, in their first year, followed by two full years of externship and externship seminars
- The clinical component of training culminates in a paid, full-time, APA-accredited internship, procured through a national match process.
