The Center for Clinical Psychology was opened in April 2004 as a university-affiliated facility. The center serves as a psychological consultation institution with three counseling rooms and two playrooms on the seventh floor of the Academy Common. The Center for Clinical Psychology has two major missions. One is to provide various kinds of psychological support such as counseling and play therapy for persons troubled by psychological issues. Consultation for teaching staff having trouble with their children or students is also a part of the center's important activities. The other mission of the center is to provide a place for practical training of graduate school students of the Special Course in Clinical Psychology for Clinical Anthropology in the Graduate School of Arts and Letters offered in April 2005. The center already has six full-time teachers, all certified clinical psychologists, who will be in charge of the graduate school and who are actively engaged in consultation activities. To deal with the various broad-ranging and complex psychological issues in today's society, more than anything, future clinical psychologists need to be developed alongside initiatives with practical activities like those at the center for Clinical Psychology. One of the roles the center's activities fill is opening up Meiji University to society. While the center has just opened, the University has high hopes that its presence will come to be known by many people to smoothly guide the specialized strengths of clinical psychology inherent in the center, and that it will be widely used .
