UCA Psychology Partners With Middle School

UCA

The University of Central Arkansas has begun a partnership with a central Arkansas middle school.

UCA’s Department of Psychology and Counseling is collaborating with North Little Rock Middle School’s sixth-grade campus to allow second- and third-year school psychology students to assist with school psychology services at the school. The partnership’s two-fold goal includes: providing a prevention/intervention-focused training experience to the UCA students and improving academic, social-emotional and behavioral outcomes for the North Little Rock students.

UCA students will work in the middle school one day each week to help with evaluations, short-term counseling, prevention programs and other efforts. Through the partnership, graduate students at both the doctoral and specialist levels earn experience that counts toward their program’s required practicum hours.    MORE
