Behavioral Medicine Clinic

The Behavioral Medicine Clinic at the Psychological Services Center is affiliated with the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center (OSUWMC). This clinic provides services at the PSC in the Psychology Building as well as at OSU Carepoint East.

Treatment is provided to individuals from the community as well as medical patients from outpatient clinics at OSUWMC. We especially welcome patients from Cardiac Rehabilitation, Pulmonary Rehabilitation, and Weight Management, but individual treatment is available for any patient with behavioral or psychological symptoms associated with other physical health problems (e.g., chronic pain, cancer, kidney disease). Common treatments include stress management, smoking cessation, coping skills training, and behavioral interventions to enhance adherence to lifestyle changes that promote healthy living and management of a chronic health condition.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) Clinic

The CBT Clinic at the Psychological Services Center is our general adult treatment clinic. Our focus is on developing, training, and delivering state-of-the-art cognitive-behavioral therapy.

All clients will complete standardized diagnostic questionnaires to aid us in developing a treatment plan. Additionally, all therapy will begin with an initial clinical interview that will include a discussion of treatment goals and will include a thorough screen for psychological symptoms and current problems. We employ Cognitive-behavioral treatment methods that are designed to address a variety of mental health concerns, ranging from stress management to major depression, including anxiety attacks, and personality disorders. As a component of our treatment, we provide education about mental health issues and when appropriate make referrals for other mental health services.
