The SHP Department of Health Psychology (MU DHP) is dedicated to meeting the needs of Missourians with disabilities by means of service, research and training.
MU DHP is composed of neuropsychologists, rehabilitation psychologists and health psychologists who provide a wide variety of clinical services across the state of Missouri. MU DHP is the sole provider of neuropsychological and rehabilitation psychology services for the MU Health Sciences Center and the primary provider of these services for central Missouri. The MU DHP faculty includes eight psychologists board certified in rehabilitation psychology or clinical neuropsychology.
Our goals are focused on helping individuals and their families adjust to disabilities by assisting with the clarification of impairments, the development of compensatory strategies, the process of coping with residual difficulties, and the identification of appropriate community resources.
