Who We Are Now

Welcome to the UTRGV Psychology Clinic!  The Psychology training clinic offers both in-house clinical practicum training and investigative clinical research experiences for our PhD Clinical Psychology graduate students. Our training clinic emphasizes working with disadvantaged and culturally diverse individuals and families from our community.  The faculty conducts clinical research to contribute to the behavioral science research literature on Hispanic populations in the areas of intimate partner violence, childhood trauma, stress and well being, neurodevelopmental disorders (autism), neuropsychology of neurological disorders, and psychological treatment with immigrants.  Multicultural diversity and bilingualism are a major emphasis across both the clinical work and research.  In addition, the Psychology clinic provides evidence based clinical services including psychotherapy, family therapy, and comprehensive evaluations for a broad range of mental conditions at a very low cost.  Our staff, faculty, and students are bilingual Spanish speaking and work with local community agency to serve those most in need of accessing mental health services.  It is our goal to serve our community and prepare the next generation of bilingual psychologists and behavioral scientists.
