Arkansas State University

A new public outreach initiative at Arkansas State University is open.  The center derives its name from the theme, Helping Our Wolves Learn.  The College of Education and Behavioral Science is home of the center, which involves the school psychology program, in partnership with the mental health counseling and special education programs.

The center is being established to provide quality services to the community while providing training opportunities to A-State students in mental health counseling, school psychology and special education.  Telling us more about this center is Dr. Lacy Overley.  Overley is assistant professor of counseling at Arkansas State and is coordinator of Play Therapy Certificate Program.  She tells about the center.
