About the Psychology Doctoral Program:
The Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program (Psy.D.) at LIU Post is a fully APA Accredited Doctoral Program that follows the practitioner-scholar model. The program is a dual theoretical orientation program that trains students who want to practice as clinical psychologists with a focus in working with traditionally underserved populations. In addition to mastering a rigorous core curriculum, Psy.D. students choose two courses from our four concentration areas: Serious Mental Illnesses, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Interventions with High-Risk Families. Our highly experienced faculty provides clinical and theoretical training in the two major orientations in the field today: cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic. As a result, our graduates are prepared to practice with one or both models, affording considerable flexibility in a professional world of constantly changing demands and opportunities.
