Boston University - Clinical Psychology

Streamlining the Patient Experience Through Design

The Graduate Program in Clinical Psychology is one of three graduate programs in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Boston University’s College of Arts and Sciences. The Clinical Psychology Program includes the child group, adult bio-psychology group, adult emotion group, adult addiction group, and adult narrative group. The department also houses the Boston University Center for Anxiety Related Disorders (“CARD”), a mental health counseling clinic, training site, and clinical research facility specializing in helping adults and children address a range of anxiety disorders and related challenges, such as difficulties with mood, sleep, concentration, and pain.

The relocation project moves Clinical Psychology from 648 Beacon Street in Boston, to 900 Commonwealth Avenue in Brookline, consolidating four floors of existing research and clinical activity onto a single floor. The new space streamlines the patient experience and improves research collaboration. The design features nature-inspired materials and colors for a calming, private, and reassuring experience.
