Psychoeducational/Psychodiagnostic Assessment: We offer a low-fee psychological assessment service for New School students or community clients involved in our therapy services.
Training and Research: The American Psychological Association requires live or recorded supervision of students. To meet this requirement, each Safran Center session is video-recorded with consent from both the student and the client, allowing close supervision of students’ work and likely improving outcomes for clients. The Center’s therapy training model also includes systematic collection of self-report measures from clients to be used for routine monitoring and quality assurance.
The Safran Center has approval from the Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) to establish a data repository, which can be utilized for research purposes by Psychology faculty and students at The New School for Social Research. A conversation and informed consent about the program and your options is provided before beginning in our program. Contribution to the research repository is voluntary.
