Generally speaking, psychotherapy is aimed at helping clients develop more awareness of their interpersonal style and behavioral patterns, and then develop strategies for making changes. The goal of psychotherapy is to help the client resolve those issues that might interfere with the client's functioning and/or life satisfaction.
Personal problems individuals deal with relate to both past and current relationships, and feelings associated with those relationships. The quality of relationships often directly affects life satisfaction and adjustment. Group therapy gives individuals an opportunity to deal with questions and concerns about their relationships in a supportive and interactive setting. Most groups are generally offered during the Spring semester.

Family therapy is offered for such issues as ongoing family conflict, communication difficulties and change in family structure (e.g., divorce, death, etc.). Couples therapy is available for relational partners working on communication issues, conflict resolution and sexual/intimacy concerns.
This service is available for short and long term. Various modalities of treatment are offered, from cognitive behavior therapy to psychodynamic.
Intellectual testing involves a comprehensive assessment of cognitive strengths and weaknesses. This would include evaluating academic achievement and learning difficulties.
Vocational interest testing is offered for adults with career or job related issues.
Personality testing is used to identify cognitive, behavior and emotional needs or difficulties.
Neuropsychological testing is used to evaluate behavioral correlates of brain functioning to determine current cognitive abilities or difficulties. Results are commonly used to develop strategies for compensating for any cognitive limitations.
At times, faculty and graduate students will offer workshops to the community or agree to be a guest speaker on areas where they possess particular expertise.

The UNT Psychology Clinic is not able to provide emergency services or psychiatric medications. Individuals who because of psychiatric difficulties need substantial case management, on-going medication adjustments, and/or emergency clinician access, are generally not appropriate for a training clinic. Such clients may be seen at the clinic when their situation is more stable.
