A component of the Department of Psychology at Emory University, the Psychological Center was
established to provide psychological services for the Atlanta community. In addition, it serves as a
training facility for advanced doctoral candidates in clinical psychology.
Established in 1965 and accredited by the American Psychological Association, the Center is
staffed by 13 licensed Ph.D. clinical psychologists and a group of advanced level graduate student
trainees. A range of diagnostic and therapeutic services is provided for emotional and educational difficulties in children, adolescents and adults. Problems addressed include the range of concerns and disorders that bring people in for treatment. They range from psychological issues related to pregnancy and childbirth, anxiety, depression, relationship problems, family and marital conflict, and child behavior problems to school-related achievement concerns, learning disabilities and attention problems.
Individual, couples, family and group psychotherapy is available on a sliding fee sale ranging from $18
to $60 per session. IQ, learning disability, attention deficit disorder and neuropsychological assessment
services are available at a reduced fee. The charge for IQ testing is $150. The fee for all other
comprehensive testing services is $700.
Therapy and testing can also be provided by the licensed clinical psychologists on faculty. If this
service is requested, standard fees are charged.
