Purdue University Department of Psychological Sciences: A Brief History

Written By: Rebecca Hoffa, [email protected]

The Department of Psychological Sciences got its start in 1908 when the first psychology courses were taught in Purdue University’s Department of Education, which served the general education requirements for students who did not belong to a specific school. Lucas George Roberts, the department’s only faculty member, taught both of the psychology courses the department offered at the time: general psychology and educational psychology.

In 1916, George Clinton Brandenburg, Purdue’s first psychologist, arrived from the University of Wisconsin. This allowed a third psychology course, “General and Applied Psychology for Seniors in Engineering,” to be added, which was the University’s first industrial psychology course. In his role, Brandenburg became the first official psychology professor at Purdue.

Years later, Hermann Henry Remmers brought national prominence with him to Purdue’s psychology program in 1923. Remmers developed the first national rating scale for students to evaluate their professors. It was known universally as the “Purdue Rating Scale for Instructors,” and the pioneering work earned Remmers the title of “Father of Student Evaluation Research.”

In 1937, Frederic Butterfield Knight arrived at Purdue, tasked with conceptualizing and directing the newly created Division of Education and Applied Psychology, which did not belong to a school. One year later, Knight invited Joseph Tiffin to the University as an associate professor of industrial psychology, where he made Purdue “the hub of industrial psychology” and developed one of the most renowned PhD programs in industrial psychology in the world.

The Division of Education and Applied Psychology was eliminated in 1954, and the Department of Psychology was developed within the School of Science, Education and Humanities. It was renamed as the Department of Psychological Sciences to better encapsulate its breadth of specialties in 1972. In 2010, the Department of Psychological Sciences joined the newly created College of Health and Human Sciences.

Having grown tremendously from its small start, the Department of Psychological Sciences today is known throughout the world, consistently ranking among the top psychology programs.

About the Program

The Psychological Sciences major provides a broad foundation in psychology, but also provides maximum flexibility in psychology course selection. Students learn about applied and basic aspects of psychology as well as have a chance to take advanced courses that give an authentic experience in diverse areas of psychology. This major leaves plenty of space for additional courses in other areas of interest and provides excellent preparation for graduate and professional programs. This program is often chosen by students interested in careers as therapists or in other human services areas, or by students who plan careers in other areas of psychology, business, or health.

Critical Course

The ♦ course is considered critical. In alignment with the Degree Map Guidance for Indiana’s Public Colleges and Universities, published by the Commission for Higher Education (pursuant to HEA 1348-2013), a Critical Course is identified as “one that a student must be able to pass to persist and succeed in a particular major.  Students who want to be nurses, for example, should know that they are expected to be proficient in courses like biology in order to be successful.  These would be identified by the institutions for each degree program”. 
The student is ultimately responsible for knowing and completing all degree requirements. Consultation with an advisor may result in an altered plan customized for an individual student. The myPurduePlan powered by DegreeWorks is the knowledge source for specific requirements and completion.

HHS Life 360: David Rollock

portrait of David Rollock

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York,  David Rollock  says he was always the kid that other kids told their problems. That sympathetic ear, academic curiosity, and infectious personality served him well through high school and Ivy League educations at Princeton and Yale, where he earned his undergraduate degree and Ph.D., respectively.

Rollock, former department head and professor of psychological sciences, recalls reading a high school textbook that suggested the IQ performance of African-Americans and other underrepresented minorities was lower than the average American score. ...

“That did not square at all with my personal experience, so I figured there was something not quite right about how they were collecting or sharing their data,” he says. “I decided I wanted to be part of the enterprise that dealt with generating new information and framing it in ways to both inform the profession and help make lives better.”

As part of that research and teaching enterprise at Purdue since 1988, Rollock has earned numerous teaching awards. He was among 10 faculty members across campus awarded 150th Anniversary Professorships. The named professorship recognizes teaching excellence, as well as a history of outstanding mentoring.

In characterizing his own teaching philosophy, Rollock believes it’s his job to help people connect with the material. “That means deploying multiple techniques to meet multiple learners where their preferred styles of learning might be,” he says. “Sometimes I lecture because, similar to many faculty colleagues, I like to be a ‘sage on a stage.’ But we also need interactive demonstrations, places where students actively see the processes they’re learning about.”

Rollock also has transitioned happily into a mentorship role, having served as chair of the University’s Teaching Academy and becoming a tireless advocate of instructional excellence. Still, it’s hard to beat that exchange with students. “Teaching keeps one on one’s toes,” he says. “It forces us to be clear, as well as thoughtful.

Purdue Psychology Treatment and Research Clinics

Clinics | About HHS

The Purdue Psychology Treatment and Research Clinics (PPTRC) serve the needs of Greater Lafayette and surrounding areas by providing high-quality assessment, therapy and psycho-educational services at affordable prices. The PPTRC is a training clinic for graduate students in the Clinical Psychological Sciences Program of the Department of Psychological Sciences . All services are provided by qualified graduate-level clinicians (“psychologists in training”) who are supervised by licensed faculty from the clinical psychology graduate program.

Commitment to Diversity

We strive to create a safe, inclusive and affirming environment for all clients and staff. We hold a deliberately broad conceptualization of multiculturalism and diversity, with an effort to honor all the identities a person may hold, including racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious and spiritual beliefs, immigration and acculturation status, ability status, socioeconomic status and more. Multicultural care is a cornerstone of our practice and of the clinicians’ training. All clinicians complete a separate course in multicultural education and diversity topics, and many of them are also actively engaged in Purdue’s Clinical Psychology Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee as well as other committees and research projects focused on anti-racism, inclusive practices and prejudice reduction.

Confidentiality

Information you share with staff members is held in the strictest confidence. Purdue Psychology Treatment and Research Clinics follow confidentiality guidelines consistent with professional and ethical standards as well as state and federal law. These will be explained in your first sessions with your clinician.

Our Clinics

Adult services clinic.

The Adult Services Clinic aims to help adults of all backgrounds cope with stress, low mood, anxiety, trauma, managing relationships and more through evidence-based psychotherapy. The clinic offers individual therapy for adult clients.

Services Offered

Clinicians will collaborate with you using a careful assessment process to determine treatment goals and approaches, track progress and ensure effective treatment. Clinicians are trained in a variety of cognitive behavior therapies, including motivational interviewing, acceptance and commitment therapy, behavioral activation, dialectical behavior therapy, the Unified Protocol, exposure therapy, cognitive processing therapy and more.

Getting Started

Prior to beginning treatment, you will receive a screening call from one of the clinic coordinators to help determine your best fit for services. In your first one or two sessions, you will complete assessments to help you and your clinician establish achievable goals and a treatment plan for achieving them. This may involve a discussion of your life and relationships, tracking behaviors, and/or learning specific skills.

Therapy may be as brief as six to eight sessions or longer term (three to six months or more).

Supervising Psychologist

Graduate student clinicians are supervised by James Noll, PhD, HSPP, a licensed psychologist in Indiana limited time lecturer in the Purdue University Department of Psychological Sciences. , Director of Training at 4C Health, and Regional Training Director of the National Psychology Training Consortium’s Great Lakes Region.

Child and Family Treatment Clinic

The Child and Family Treatment Clinic helps the families of children who experience difficulties with attention, hyperactivity, following directions, managing emotions, and/or homework or schoolwork.

The Child and Family Treatment Clinic offers treatment that has been demonstrated through research to be effective in helping children who frequently display disruptive and/or oppositional behavior as well as children who have difficulty managing their emotions. We focus on helping adults learn new skills to guide their child to better functioning. We offer services in a group telehealth format or through individual in-person sessions with families. Because every family is different, you and your clinician will work together to set goals and create a treatment plan for your child.

Prior to beginning treatment, you will receive a screening call from one of the clinic coordinators to help determine your best fit for services. In the first session, caregivers will answer a series of questions to allow the clinician to understand current concerns and create an effective treatment plan. This will also include the completion of some parent and teacher assessment forms about your child that will aid you and your clinician in setting achievable goals. For families with behavioral concerns, we strongly recommend beginning treatment with the Behavioral Parent/Caregiver Training group program, a nine-session program designed to teach parents/caregivers strategies to manage behavioral challenges in children

The nine session Behavioral Parent/Caregiver Training group program is offered each semester and meets via telehealth from 5:30-7 p.m. on Wednesdays. Individual family treatment typically lasts eight to 10 sessions. For in-person, parents-only sessions, child care may be provided upon request.

Graduate student clinicians are supervised by Heather Ciesielski, PhD, HSPP, ABPP, a psychologist board certified in clinical child and adolescent psychology and a Clinical Associate Professor in the Purdue University Department of Psychological Sciences. Dr. Ciesielski is licensed for independent practice in Indiana and Kentucky and licensed for telepsychology in states participating in PSYPACT.

Testing and Assessment Clinic

The Testing and Assessment Clinic provides psychological evaluations for children and adults from the Greater Lafayette community. Depending on the presenting concerns and needs of the client, we provide both brief and comprehensive assessments to obtain diagnostic information and treatment recommendations.

Areas assessed may include cognitive functioning, adaptive behavior, personality and social-emotional functioning. Results of the assessments may be used to determine or document the presence of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), learning disorders, problems with memory, autism spectrum disorders, and other situations or conditions. When an evaluation is complete, we discuss the findings with the person or family, and we provide a report explaining the tests, findings and recommendations.

Each assessment begins with a discussion between the clinician and the client or client’s parents/caregivers about the questions they would like answered and the way they plan to use the information. There may be specific purposes for the evaluation, such as determining whether you or your child qualify for accommodations under the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act (IDEA) — typically for special education accommodations — or the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), or you may be seeking greater personal understanding about your emotional or cognitive functioning. After this discussion, the clinician and client will agree on the content, scope and charges for the assessment.

Assessments include a detailed interview about current concerns, life experiences, and previous diagnoses or treatment. Assessments will also include administration of one or more objective tests that offer rating scales related to current concerns, consideration of strengths and difficulties, and an explanation of findings with recommendations. With permission from the client, information from teachers, parents or other family members is often included in the evaluation.

Prior to beginning treatment, you will receive a screening call from one of the clinic coordinators to help determine your best fit for services. Depending on the reasons for seeking services, the assessment may range from two to five sessions and include evaluation of one or more of these areas:

  • Intellectual functioning
  • Memory and executive functions
  • Academic achievement and learning processes
  • Attention processes
  • Social-emotional functioning
  • Behavior problems

For all three clinics, there is a standard fee of $25 for the first session. Fees for any additional assessment and treatment are determined on a sliding scale that is based upon your ability to pay. We ask that you please bring documentation of income to your first appointment (1040 Form). Although we do not accept insurance, we work with you to ensure our services are accessible to everyone.
