The Psychology Clinic provides a professional clinical space for Flinders' postgraduate (Masters and Clinical PhD) provisional psychologists to carry out assessments and therapy under the supervision of a registered clinical psychologist. It also serves as a research facility.
The Flinders University Psychology Clinic accepts self-referrals for:
- assessment and treatment of anxiety and stress problems in children and adolescents
- assessment and treatment of behaviour problems in children
- assessment and treatment of anxiety disorders in adults
- psycho-educational assessments of children and adolescents (testing of intelligence and academic achievement).
We work with children and adolescents with a range of issues including school avoidance, selective mutism, generalised anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, adjustment to challenging events (eg, parental separation), perfectionism and managing stress (such as Year 12). We also work with children (and their families) where behavioural difficulties in the home or school environments are a concern.
For adults, referrals for a range of anxiety disorders including generalised anxiety disorder, social phobia and specific phobias are welcome.
Who provides the services?
Psychology clinic services are provided by our postgraduate clinical psychology trainees and supervised by senior psychologist Dr Levina Clark. The clinic coordinator is Dr Oren Griffiths.
