Clinic Research

The Community Counseling and Assessment Clinic is affiliated with the Counseling Psychology program in the Department of Psychology at the University of Southern Mississippi. Because of this affiliation, graduate students and faculty occasionally run research through the clinic. Clients will be informed about any projects for which they may be appropriate and for which active participation is sought.

Below are some examples of research conducted at the Community Counseling and Assessment Clinic.
