Other Relevant Information and Comments: The University of Indianapolis offers a PsyD degree with a concentration in "Adult Development and Geropsychology." This concentration area provides students with advanced skills in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of problems found in later adulthood. Both normal and dysfunctional patterns of coping are examined within the broader domains of marriage, social relationships and work. Areas such as neuropsychological assessment, health related influences on psychological adaptation, the impact and influence of drugs on psychosocial functioning and working with adult families are also addressed. In addition, students are given opportunities to work with interdisciplinary teams and provide community based services for older adults.  Clinical skills in this area are further enhanced through doctoral-level practicum and intership experiences in mental health centers, outpatient clinics, residential treatment facilities and group practice settings.
