An important part of our mission is to conduct research that will aid our clinicians and other practitioners across the country in deepening our understanding and effectiveness. The research is conducted and supervised by the clinical psychology faculty. There are a range of topics and areas that the staff pursue, such as the treatment of headaches, anxiety, smoking cessation, cultural awareness, early childhood and school-based intervention.
University of Mississippi faculty are internationally known for the quality of research conducted through the department, and are regularly published in journals, presented in conferences, and sought out by other practitioners and clinics to inform and improve thier own services.
All research is done with the knowledge and consent of the people who participate. Privacy is always more important than research, and no observation or measurements are ever conducted without somone’s full knowledge and permission.
