MSU Psychology Clinic holds open house Sept. 10

Contact: Allison Matthews

STARKVILLE, Miss.—It’s available, affordable and effective, and the staff touting it are ready for Starkville, the Golden Triangle and Northeast Mississippi to take advantage of it.

The Mississippi State University Psychology Clinic offers services not widely available within two hours travel time from Starkville, according to licensed psychologist Arazais Oliveros, an MSU assistant professor who directs the clinic.

The clinic will host an open house Sept. 10 from 4-7 p.m. to showcase its new location on campus at 70 Morgan Ave. The event also will observe National Recovery Month and World Suicide Prevention Day. For more, see http://www.recoverymonth.gov/about and https://www.iasp.info/wspd/.

“We aim to make connections with MSU students, faculty, staff, as well as members of the surrounding community,” Oliveros said, adding that she would like to increase visibility of the clinic services.

Payments are charged on a sliding scale based on income. Although the clinic does not accept insurance, the staff is willing to work with clients to ensure they are able to receive the care they need.

“We’re local, and we’re affordable,” said Michael R. Nadorff, an assistant psychology professor who also provides services at the clinic.

Services are provided by licensed clinical psychology faculty at MSU, as well as graduate students who are closely supervised by the faculty. All staff are bound by confidentiality in protecting healthcare information.

MSU psychologists on staff at the clinic focus on a variety of specialty treatments for all age groups, including: parent training and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, sleep disorders, suicidal behavior and geropsychology; aggressive behavior, self-injury and substance abuse; panic and anxiety disorders; behavioral and motivational issues with children and adults. Additionally, there is a trained expert in psychological diagnoses on staff.

“Our clinic is unique in that it provides empirical services in a rural area,” said assistant psychology professor Sam Winer. “Empirical treatments are those that have research showing that they work. We’ve received national recognition for doing treatments that work, and we will continuously evaluate those treatments.”

Because the clinic is staffed with psychologists, not psychiatrists, staff cannot prescribe medications. However, MSU Psychology Clinic experts can work with doctors or other medical professionals if prescription treatments are determined to be an effective course of action in addition to therapy, Oliveros said.

The clinic is open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Clinic holidays coincide with those of the university calendar, to which the general public can link at www.msstate.edu.

For more information about the clinic, visit http://clinic.psychology.msstate.edu or call 662-325-0270.

MSU is Mississippi’s flagship research university, available online at www.msstate.edu.

MSU student fashion designer receives national recognition

STARKVILLE, Miss.—An Alabama senior at Mississippi State is beginning the 2015-16 school year with a major fashion design award.

Taylor M. Howell of Fayette is a fashion design and merchandising major in the School of Human Sciences of the university’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.

Her entry took Best of Show honors in the undergraduate division of the recent 2015 Apparel, Textiles and Design Community Juried Showcase and Exhibition.

The competition was part of the Virginia-based American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences’ 106th annual conference. Some 700 professionals, educators, students and others took part in the Jacksonville, Florida, gathering. 

“The AAFCS is the organization that accredits clothing, fashion, apparel, design, textile and merchandising curricula throughout the U.S.,” said MSU professor Phyllis Bell Miller.

Miller, a veteran faculty member in the School of Human Sciences, said Taylor’s entry was a two-piece set with a cropped top and a circular skirt made from upcycled coffee filters, dryer sheets and teabags. The unconventional creation debuted during last year’s MSU Trashion Show that featured clothes constructed from recycled material, she explained.

An MSU President’s List Scholar, Howell said, “This was the first project I saw through from design to completion. The concept was very different, so I wasn’t expecting to win.

“Placing first encouraged me in my work,” she continued. “It was a big honor to see my ideas recognized as good for the future.”

Miller commended Howell’s dedication to the creative process. “Taylor is a wonderful example of a student who really pushed herself and embraced the process instead of cutting corners,” she said.

Miller also said Howell clearly has taken to heart advice she continually emphasizes in her classes. “I stress doing the best that you can, learning the most that you can and, as a result, producing the best product that you can,” Miller said.

Miller said Howell’s most recent accolade “further demonstrates the integrity and excellence of our program.” Additionally, she noted that another Howell creation had won first-place honors in the garment manufacturing category of the 2014 Cotton Incorporated Fashion Show held on campus. 

Senior Brittany L. Dowell of Vicksburg also was entered in the 2015 AAFCS competition. She and Howell became the first duo from Mississippi State ever to compete at the same event, Miller said.

During last year’s Cotton Incorporated Fashion Show, Dowell, also a President’s List Scholar, won first place in the fabric-design category. Like Howell, her design entry was completed in Miller’s class.
