About the Psychological Consultation Center

 The Psychological Consultation Center (PCC) is part of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Clinical Psychology Training Program, which was established in 1948. PCC clinicians and staff provide psychological services to individuals and families in Lincoln and surrounding communities. At the same time, the PCC is a teaching, training, and research center for the Clinical Psychology Training Program (CPTP). Services are provided by doctoral students in the CPTP. All services provided in the PCC are supervised by licensed clinical psychologists who hold faculty appointments in the Department of Psychology or who are contracted with the Department to provide supervision.

Any resident of Nebraska may seek services at the PCC, regardless of being a UNL faculty/staff/student member. We offer services to children (age limits may apply, please inquire for further information), adolescents, and adults. The PCC offers individual, couples, family, and group psychotherapy, as well as psychological evaluations and consultations.

The PCC does not take third party referrals due to our intake process; all individuals seeking services must contact us on their own (the exception being individuals with legal parents/guardianship).  Please do not have third parties submit medical/private records to our clinic unless you have confirmed with them you have started services with us and have submitted a release of information for us to receive them. For privacy and security of all parties, these records will be securely destroyed if received in error.

Our Mission and Goal

The mission of the PCC is threefold: 1) to provide state-of-the-art, evidence-based psychological assessment and intervention services for individuals and families in Lincoln and surrounding areas; 2) to provide excellent professional development and clinical practice training for CPTP doctoral students in a behavioral health outpatient clinic that serves the general population; and, 3) to conduct assessment- and treatment-relevant research that contributes to knowledge and practice regarding psychopathology, clinical assessment, and treatment across the lifespan. The goal of all PCC services is to integrate the clinical, training, and research aspects of the PCC mission into exceptional services that are grounded in and contribute to state-of-the-art research. Such integrated experience is the standard for graduate student clinical training in the scientist-practitioner tradition.

The PCC faculty, doctoral students, and staff are committed to providing services and conducting research in the scientist-practitioner tradition, with a particular emphasis on evidence-based practice and adherence to the ethical standards of psychology. Evidence-based practices are defined as “the integration of the best available research with clinical expertise in the context of patient characteristics, culture, and preferences,” (American Psychological Association, 2005).


All information related to therapy and assessments is held in strict confidence within the limits of state and federal laws.
