Historical Overview

Beginning in 1996, counseling services were offered to Regent University students by lay counselors affiliated with the Division of Student Services. With the university's growth came the need for expanded services. The Regent University Psychological Services Center was established as a service of the School of Psychology & Counseling in 1999. The Psychological Services Center underwent significant periods of redefinition in 1998 by expanding its facility. In 2002, the center relocated to a larger, remodeled space to accommodate the clinical service and training mission of the site. The Psychological Services Center is a unit in the School of Psychology & Counseling. The School of Psychology & Counseling supports the Christian academic mission of Regent University by preparing students to be competent, ethical clinicians, leaders, and educators from a spiritually-integrated perspective.

The Psychological Services Center advances the university's mission through integrating the educational process of 2nd year Psy.D. students within a spiritual and professional development framework. The 2nd year doctoral students have a full year clinical placement and receive on-going training through supervision, clinical team meetings, and practica classes. This mission is accomplished through clinical experiences, outreach, consultation, mentorship, and scholarly activities. Each of these domains is addressed within a multicultural context that demonstrates respect for human differences.

Services take the form of individual, couples, group, and family therapy, as well as, assessment, outreach, and consultation. Faculty affiliated with the center may also be called upon for crisis intervention services. The Psychological Services Center is accredited by the American Psychological Association through the Doctor of Psychology Clinical Program within the School of Psychology & Counseling. The center espouses a practitioner-scholar model of training which allows for skillful applications of lessons learned in the classroom.
