Message from the Interim Dean
thank you for your interest in the educational programs offered by the Center for
Psychological studies of nova southeastern university (nsu).
Maintaining a tripartite mission—education and training, service to the communi-
ty, and clinical research—a dynamic interaction between our academic programs
and our clinical facilities ensures that learning stays rooted in the primary issues
facing our communities. research focuses on the current relevant psychological
issues of our times. over the coming years, a particular focus will be on student
academic engagement, with increased opportunities for students to enrich their
academic experience, both inside and outside the classroom.
the center enjoys national recognition for its faculty members and programs.
Programs offered include master’s degree programs in mental health counseling, school guidance and
counseling, and clinical psychopharmacology; a specialist degree in school psychology; and two american
Psychological association (aPa)-accredited doctoral programs in clinical psychology. other educational pro-
grams include a behavioral sciences track in the interdisciplinary master’s degree program in criminal justice,
a continuing education program, the institute on trauma and Victimization, and the southeast institute for
Cross-Cultural Counseling and Psychotherapy. also, a part of the center is a Psychological services Center,
an aPa-accredited predoctoral internship program, and the Consortium internship Program (aPPiC member)
that provides service to a vast array of clinically and culturally diverse populations.
the Center for Psychological studies, the fischler school of education and human services, and the
Mailman segal institute for early Childhood studies formed a dynamic partnership to create the Counseling
studies institute. students can complete an online master’s degree in counseling with concentrations in
mental health counseling, substance abuse counseling, substance abuse counseling and education, and/or
applied behavioral analysis.
as you learn about our programs, i think you will find that we have an outstanding set of diverse resources
that enable us to provide truly exceptional education.
■   We have distinguished faculty members, many of whom are nationally and internationally renowned as
    leaders in the field of psychology. the faculty is also large and diverse, resulting in a variety of representa-
    tive specializations not often available in other programs.
■   faculty-directed clinical programs offered through the Psychology services Center provide training oppor-
    tunities in the areas of neuropsychological, psychological, and school consultation and assessment; cross-
    cultural counseling and assessment; the treatment of alcohol and substance abuse; co-occurring disorders;
    child and adult trauma; family violence; clinical health psychology and biofeedback; adhd; psychodynamic
    psychotherapy; and counseling for older adults.
■   nsu is located in a metropolitan area that provides many practicum and internship sites, as well as other
    educational institutions. this allows for a wide range of research opportunities and populations, as well as
    many job opportunities.
■   our center offers one or more if its master’s and specialist degree programs at the university’s student
    educational centers located in Jacksonville, Miami, orlando, tampa, and West Palm Beach, florida, and in
    las Vegas, nevada. the format of these programs is designed for access by working professionals.
the center has become a national leader in providing education and cutting-edge services to the public. We
are committed to continuing to make significant contributions to our community and to society well into the
future, while providing the most advanced training opportunities to our students.
