Frequently Asked Questions

Information current students wish they had known before joining the lab

How soon will I start working with clients?

Within the first few weeks (based on your comfort level) you will be placed on cases with upper year students, and as you continue gaining exposure to cases by co-treating, you will gradually build up your own individual case load. Students typically end up with roughly 8 cases by the end of their first year.

What kind of supervision do we receive and how hands on is it?

We receive weekly two-hour group supervision which is lead by Dr. Phyllis Ohr as well as upper year students in the lab. Here students have a chance to bring up cases to discuss with the group and receive input from multiple perspectives. Additionally, each student receives individual one hour supervision with Dr. Ohr each week as well.

How much research am I expected to do?

All students in the Clinical PhD program are required to do a Master’s Thesis and Dissertation towards meeting research requirements in the program. Students interested in additional research can partake in additional research activities if they choose to do so and there are a lot of opportunities through the clients in the clinic.

What types of clients do you treat?

We treat children and adolescents presenting with a myriad of disorders, included but not limited to, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, selective mutism, separation anxiety disorder, specific phobia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, depression, and dysregulated mood dysregulation disorder, ARFID and others.
