Chestnut Hill College Opens Psychological Services Clinic in Flourtown
Release Date: Monday, January 9, 2012
PHILADELPHIA, PA –The Department of Professional Psychology at Chestnut Hill College has opened a clinic for psychological services in Flourtown, Pa. to serve the local community.
Currently, the Psychological Services Clinic of Chestnut Hill College (PSC-CHC) provides affordable psychoeducational, psychosocial, and diagnostic assessment services to children, adolescents, college students and older adults living in the greater Philadelphia area. All testing and assessments will be conducted by practicum students and pre-doctoral interns enrolled in the College’s Doctor of Psychology program. Licensed clinical psychologists on the faculty of the College’s Department of Professional Psychology will directly supervise all of the assessments. Fees for services can be negotiated based on a client’s ability to pay.
The new clinic provides a wide range of assessment services, ranging from brief diagnostic tests to comprehensive batteries. These include assessment for:
- Learning Disabilities
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- Behavior Disorders
- Intellectual Abilities
- Academic Achievement
Beginning in the fall of 2012, the clinic will also offer psychotherapy services for children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. They will be performed by pre-doctoral students and interns, and will be supervised by licensed psychologists on the faculty.
“We are thrilled to be able to provide low cost, high quality psychological services to individuals in the Philadelphia area while supporting Chestnut Hill College’s mission of service to the community, says Jeanne DiVincenzo, Psy.D., assistant professor of psychology and director of the Psychological Services Clinic of Chestnut Hill College. The College and the Department of Professional Psychology have been working on this project for a long time, and it is exciting to see it is come to fruition. The need for these services in the community is great, as evidenced by the growing number of referrals from schools, colleges, and therapists who are grateful to have our services to offer their students and clients. We will be able to provide a high quality of care for those who would otherwise be unable to afford these services, with licensed faculty members supervising our students and interns. I am very happy to be a part of the development of this project. Not only does the clinic help those in the community, but it provides our pre-doctoral students with great opportunities for supervised clinical training.”
