STATESBORO — Georgia Southern University’s Psychology Clinic is expanding its services to include caring for children.
The clinic is now making appointments for children ages 12 months to 18 years old. The clinic offers counseling and therapy for anger management, ADHD, anxiety, depression, grief, sexual abuse and trauma.
"These services offer children who haven’t come from the best situations a place to get everything out in the open. It’s important to make sure these children are counseled so they can build resilience and see that other people have experienced what they’re going through," said clinic coordinator Marsha Warren.
Once a family calls to make an appointment, the child’s case is reviewed by professionals to see if the child meets all the clinic requirements. After the case has been reviewed, the child will be assigned to a therapist who is qualified to handle the particular elements of the case.
The psychology clinic serves as a training facility for graduate students enrolled in the clinical psychology program at Georgia Southern, and they provide high quality, low-cost psychological services to students and individuals in the community.
The psychology clinic is on Georgia Southern University’s campus on Forest Drive and is open from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Call (912) 478-1685 to make an appointment. For more information, go to http://class.georgiasouthern.edu/psychology/psyclinic/index.php.
