The Goodman Psychological Services Center is the on-campus training site for the clinical psychology doctoral programs at Albizu University, Miami campus. The clinic was established in the early 1980s and has provided mental health services to Miami’s multicultural community since then.
The Goodman Center offers the following services to children, adolescents, and adults:
- Initial assessment interview
- Individual, couple, family, and group psychotherapy, including parenting groups
- Psychological, psychoeducational, and neuropsychological testing for school placement, diagnosis, and/or treatment
The clinic also houses a doctoral internship program that holds membership in the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC).
As a doctoral student working at the Center under the supervision of licensed psychologists, you will provide mental health services in a broad range of clinical areas to low-income and minority clients from the South Florida community. You are required to complete a minimum of two semesters at the Goodman Center before being eligible to apply for external practicum.
During your practicum at the Goodman Center, you will engage in psychotherapy, psychodiagnostic evaluations, seminars, didactic training, and mentorship from interns. Your cases may include referrals from the courts, other universities, the Florida Department of Children and Families, foster care and adoption services, and other agencies. In keeping with the mission and philosophy of Albizu University, you will be trained to be sensitive and responsive to cultural and ethnic issues while providing quality service to the community.
