The Weibling Project for the Psychological Treatment and Study of Discrimination addresses the reciprocal links between mental illness and discrimination at work, school, and in the community. The students and faculty engage in direct intervention, education, and research to try and break the discrimination -- mental illness -- dysfunction cycle.
Our Center is unique because we treat discrimination and mental illness as a compounded and complex psychological problem, rather than as two separate issues, one that falls in the domain of law and another that falls in the domain of psychology.
The Civil Clinical Law Program at the University of Nebraska College of Law (the CCLP) is often the initial contact at the Weibling Project for individuals who believe they could be victims of discrimination at work, at school, or in the general community. Read more about legal analysis
