Mission Statement

The Wisconsin School of Professional Psychology (WSPP) has as its goal the provision of a doctoral-level education which emphasizes the acquisition of the traditional skills which defined the professional in the past while staying open to emerging developments, cultural diversity and change. Our program balances scientific knowledge and practical instruction, taking its impetus from the recommendations of the American Psychological Association's (APA) Vail conference. The School's curriculum was developed in accord with APA standards and is continually evaluated to assure compliance with those requirements. WSPP is committed to training professional clinical psychologists who are sensitive to cultural differences and skilled in service provision to diverse populations. The richly diversified community which surrounds us enhances our training.

Description

WSPP is an accredited graduate school offering Master's and Doctorate degrees in clinical psychology. The program from the bachelor's level includes three years of coursework, a dissertation and a traditional doctoral internship. The curriculum combines classroom and practicum training. We are a small school (class size maximum = 15 students) with a family atmosphere that has been called "a well-kept secret". The physical plant, which has ample parking and is handicapped accessible, is housed in an office building, consisting of classrooms, business offices, library, computer center, student lounge and a conference area. The WSPP Training Institute / Psychology Center is a state-mandated clinic and occupies a suite of offices at the same location. This actively maintained Training Institute provides a rich vareity of practicum experiences (e.g. clinical, research and administrative) by directly servicing Milwaukee's multicultural community. Faculty, all of whom are state-licensed psychologists, supervise students at the WSPP Center and in the community on a volunteer basis. Ongoing workshops and seminars stress training in professional issues and affairs, practice and program development and ethics. The richly diversified community which surrounds us enhances our training, and the Center donates over $300,000 owrth of clinical services within the Milwaukee area annually.
