Psychological Services Unit

The Psychological Services Unit, established in 1988, stems from a tested model linking service with training and is the first of its kind in Hong Kong. The Unit provides an array of specialised services within the discipline of psychology, targeted towards Hong Kong’s population and organisations.

The Unit functions both as a training facility and a service organisation; as such, the services are mianly rendered by postgraduate trainees in clinical psychology and in educational psychology, under the direct supervision of teaching staff who are experienced practitioners.
