Laboratory in Clinical Psychology: Hampshire County Jail and House of Corrections

Students provide direct services in two settings in this laboratory-based class. In the first, after training to become Certified Decisional Trainers, students meet for weekly sessions to conduct a manual Cognitive Behavior Therapy problem-solving treatment with a person currently incarcerated in the Hampshire County Jail and House of Corrections. In the second, students assist staff in acute psychiatric wards at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Leeds, or assist staff working with children on anger-management skills at the People's Institute Day Care and After School Programs in Northampton.
