Charles Golden, Ph.D., meets for supervision with his students in the neuropsychology concentration. The clinical neuropsychology concentration in the doctoral program encompasses the approaches, perspectives, and practice settings of neuropsychology, and extends to the related disciplines of neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neuropathology, neurorehabilitation, and child neuropsychological assessment. Additionally, students are afforded opportunities to begin their own research or work with other students on ongoing projects. The concentration accepts students who have their own ideas and research ambitions, as well as those whose primary goals are more clinically oriented.
Dr. Golden is professor of psychology and director of the Neuropsychological and Psychological Assessment Programs that offer services to the community through NSU's Psychology Services Center. He holds board certification in clinical neuropsychology, clinical psychology, and psychological assessment. He has more than 30 years of clinical experience, over 300 books, chapters, and articles to his credit, and is co-author of the Luria-Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery.

These clinics provide both assessment and diagnostic services for the community, as well as a supervised training environment for students. The clinic works with a broad range of clients, including children with learning disabilities or developmental disorders, adults with disorders ranging from severe psychopathology to traumatic brain injury, and the elderly.
