About the Division

Members of the Clinical Division work in settings ranging from state psychiatric facilities to private, independent, or clinical practice. The division has several committees actively involved in various professional issues: insurance reimbursement for private practice, managed care, status and rights of psychologists in institutions, professional training and standards, and continuing education.

The Clinical Division is involved in many activities that support both providers and consumers of services:

  • The Clinical Division Practice Group has formed groups of clinical psychologists throughout the state that give private practitioners an opportunity to get support and feedback and register their concerns in this time of extreme stress for our profession.
  • The Division sponsors NYSPA's Annual Peter Lincoln Internship Fair to help graduate students through the difficult and trying process connecting with their best matching site.
  • A Public Education Library was created filled with valuable information for making public presentations and giving media interviews and is freely available to all members of NYSPA.

The division is open to psychologists and students who are interested in all facets of clinical psychology including theory, research and practice. Members work in settings ranging from state psychiatric facilities to private, independent, or clinical practice. The division has several committees actively involved in various professional issues: insurance reimbursement for private practice, managed care, status and rights of psychologists in institutions, professional training and standards, and continuing education.
