Other Uni­ver­sity of Wash­ing­ton Services

 

The UW Clin­i­cal Psy­chol­ogy pro­gram is con­sis­tently ranked among the top five in the US and Canada, while the UW School of Nurs­ing is ranked 1st in the nation, and the UW Med­ical School is ranked 9th in the nation. The Uni­ver­sity is com­mit­ted to inter­dis­ci­pli­nary pro­grams and to reduc­ing the insti­tu­tional bar­ri­ers between investigators.

The Uni­ver­sity of Washington’s Psy­cho­log­i­cal Ser­vices and Train­ing Cen­ter (The Clinic) pro­vides psy­chother­apy and psy­cho­log­i­cal assess­ment to res­i­dents of the Seat­tle met­ro­pol­i­tan area, includ­ing Uni­ver­sity of Wash­ing­ton stu­dents and their fam­i­lies. The UW Depart­ment of Psy­chol­ogy par­tially sub­si­dizes the train­ing func­tion of the Clinic, which allows it to offer psy­cho­log­i­cal ser­vices at sub­stan­tially reduced fees. This fee pol­icy enables them to reach many typ­i­cally under­served pop­u­la­tions such as low-income, eth­nic and sex­ual minori­ties, as well as chil­dren and families.

The Behav­ioral Research and Ther­apy Clin­ics (BRTC) which Dr. Line­han directs is asso­ci­ated with a national and inter­na­tional con­sor­tium of clin­i­cal, neu­ro­bi­o­log­i­cal, and inter­ven­tion researchers.
