Faculty members in the Munroe-Meyer Institute’s Department of Psychology provide clinical services to children, adolescents and families throughout Nebraska for a wide range of behavioral, emotional and academic concerns. We are devoted to the assessment and effective treatment of behavioral and emotional disorders, and we use behavioral principles to help children and adolescents decrease problem behaviors and increase positive behaviors. The MMI psychology department is passionate about providing services to underserved areas through outreach programs in urban and rural areas and through technology-based service provision (telehealth). We are committed to helping children, adolescents and families succeed through individual and family therapy, parent training and interdisciplinary consultation.
Faculty members also train graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in behavioral pediatric psychology. Trainees in the psychology department gain experience in service provision in integrated primary care, research and didactic opportunities. Research is conducted across a wide range of specialty areas, including clinical treatment and integration of services in primary care.
The psychology department's commitment to education, training and research ensures that each child will receive the most effective, up-to-date care that pediatric psychology has to offer. Our faculty is committed to the success and well-being of Nebraska’s children and families.
