If you find that your problem is affecting your daily functioning, it may be beneficial to consult with a therapist. When you become preoccupied with the issue, have difficulty concentrating on other areas of your life, or have notable mood shifts, you are restricted from living a full life. Consulting with a therapist is a resourceful exchange that can help to gain perspective and identify alternative ways to handle the situation. People also meet with a therapist to optimize their life.
Clinical records are kept confidential based on legal and ethical standards. In addition to Virginia laws which govern the quality handling of clinical records, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) mandates storing, transfer, and copy practices of all medical records. The Psychological Services Center adheres to the high standards of HIPAA practice and all state laws governing clinical records.

The Psychological Services Center features the Cultural Diversity Lunch Series each fall and spring. This is an initiative designed to promote cultural awareness, student professional development, and spiritual integration. It also facilitates community partnerships with Regent University. As of spring 2005, the program provides Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) for selected presentations. Mental health professionals will have the opportunity to get licensure credit for participating in the series, depending on state laws regulating their license status.
Students enrolled in the clinical psychology doctoral program (Psy.D.) are encouraged to submit presentation proposals that can be facilitated alone, with a fellow student, with a Regent faculty member, or a representative from the Hampton Roads community. After a review process (faculty and student representative), selected presentations are featured in the fall and spring series. The presentations are 1-1.5 hours in length and address the various dimensions of diversity (e.g., race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, physical ability, marital status, sexual orientation, and spiritual/religious orientation).
Please use the “Submit Proposal” tab below to submit your proposal.
The Paradigm Shift Initiative is a dialogue-based forum to explore Christian perspectives that address life’s difficult questions and challenges from an integrative psychological framework.
Books are selected prior to each meeting to guide topical discussions along the various dimensions of spirituality, moral development, ethical practices, and psychological well-being. The mode of discussion is geared to address compelling integration challenges from a Socratic framework (questioning areas without clear answers). Meetings are scheduled for one-hour blocks and are open to all Regent students, staff, and faculty, as well as representatives from the Hampton Roads community.
