Our psychologists, social workers, and other providers and other mental health providers at the U-M Psychological Clinic are expertly trained in a number of treatment models that are shown by research to be effective for treating mental health issues, and work together to create a useful, practical combination of treatment plans for every client. Our mental health services are informed by many different theoretical perspectives.
Designing Treatment Plans based on Psychological Assessment Tools
To ensure that our clients are getting the right treatment for their mental health issues, our clinicians use a battery of psychological assessment tools administered orally or as questionnaires to measure their clients’ psychological functioning. Their treatment plans are then developed in conjunction with a comprehensive analysis of those evaluative tests.
Our clinicians work with their clients and a team of fellow clinicians to design tailored, individualized treatment plans based on their clients’ needs and concerns. They use an integrative approach to treatment, often using a combination of various psychotherapies to help clients tackle their psychological issues fully.
