About Us

ISU's Psychology Clinic provides psychological testing for DSM-5 diagnoses and evidence-based treatments for children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. 

The Psychology Clinic is a training and behavioral health care center connected with the ISU Psychology Department. This treatment facility, which was established in 1978, provides training for doctoral students in the clinical psychology program as well as a low cost treatment option for children and adults living in Southeastern Idaho.

Services are not restricted to the university and in fact most clients are community members. Clients work collaboratively with psychology trainees and the supervising clinical faculty to resolve mental health difficulties and reach personal goals.

All assistance and records are confidential, except as excluded by law.

Clinical services provided primarily reflect the specialty areas of the faculty members of the Psychology Department at ISU. Providers may offer psychological testing for DSM-5 diagnoses and evidence-based treatments for children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families, including but not limited to the following specialty services:

  • Evidence-based treatment for Depressive, Anxiety, and other DSM-5 Disorders
  • Treatment for sleep and impulse control difficulties
  • Treatment for interpersonal/relationship issues
  • Assessment and treatment for externalizing and internalizing problems in children and adolescents, including specializations in feeding difficulties, selective mutism, developmental disabilities, and Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Child and adult evaluations for ADHD, Specific Learning Disorders, and Intellectual Disabilities

Billing

  • Our clinic does not accept or bill insurance and is a cash pay clinic.  Since we are a training facility with student therapist involvement, insurance companies are often not obligated to cover our services. Upon request, we will assist clients who wish to file insurance claims, but we are unable to file a claim for you.

Payment

  • Payment is expected at the time of service.  We accept cash and/or checks.

Fees

  • There is no charge for an initial, individual adult-consultation. ISU students, faculty and staff receive a fee reduction, however, students should always contact the ISU Counseling and Testing Center (208-282-2130) where services are provided to students at no cost.
  • Fees at the ISU Psychology Clinic are based on a sliding fee scale similar to that used by public sector agencies such as the Department of Health and Welfare. Separate fees have been established for special services (e.g. assessments, forensic work).
  • All clients sign an informed consent and fee agreement. Clients are expected to pay at least half of their assessment fee when services commence.
  • Some faculty may see patients themselves through the Faculty Practice Plan (FPP); patients participating in the FPP are billed at the lower limit of prevailing community rates.

Clinic Training Admission and Facilities

The Psychology Clinic is a training facility. Special conditions surrounding the training function of the clinic (e.g., role of students, research options, protocol limitations) are explained at the time of initial consultation if applicable.

The physical structure includes six standard treatment/consultation rooms, two testing areas, a child playroom, and several group/conference rooms, all equipped with standard observational facilities. Our facility includes a computer lab and library for graduate student use, as well as video conferencing capabilities.

Computerized administration and/or scoring is available for frequently used psychological tests (e.g., WAIS-IV/WMS-IV, MMPI-2, PAI).

Library searches using Psych INFO and medical databases can also be conducted on site.

The clinic exposes psychology students to a variety of different training experiences, providing both individual and group supervision in practicum. Specialty workshops by external faculty (e.g., crisis management, Pediatric Health Psychology) are provided annually.
