We learned today that the Counseling Psychology doctoral program received reaccreditation from the Commission on Accreditation and the American Psychological Association for the maximum period of seven years.

We would like to thank all the graduate students, faculty, and administrators whose contributions made this possible. But most of all, thanks go to Dr. Bonnie Nicholson for her work throughout the process, during which she served as both the program's Director of Training and our department's Assistant Chair.

Congratulations to everyone involved in the program!

Our program's in-house training clinic, the Community Counseling and Assessment Clinic, has played a central role in our training ever since our doctoral program was first accredited by the American Psychological Association. This is where our students obtain their first counseling experience, working with a variety of college students and community adults under the supervision of program faculty. In addition to our training mission, the Clinic provides service to the university and Hattiesburg communities in the form of quality, affordable psychological services. And in this context, the Clinic facilitates research by graduate students and program faculty.

The Community Counseling and Assessment Clinic has launched a new blog to share information about our services and upcoming events, mental health news, and tips for promoting health and wellness. We hope that this blog will make it easier for us to spread the word about our clinic and offer clients and community partners with another way to connect with us. You can find more about why we started a blog and what we hope it will allow us to do in the first post.

Dr. Mike Madson is scheduled to be interviewed on Southern Miss Radio (WUSM 88.5 FM) about the Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS) program on Tuesday, January 28 at Noon.

The BASICS program is available free of charge to Southern Miss students of traditional college age (18-25) who drink alcohol and are interested in preventing the consequences often associated with alcohol use. Students who participate in research associated with the program can earn up to $30 in gift certificates at Barnes and Noble or Starbucks.

BASICS has been well-received at the university, and Dr. Madson has done a great job in spreading the word about the program on campus.

For those of you who would like to listen to the interview but are not in the Hattiesburg area, you can find some information here about how to listen online.
