The Chicago School’s Communications Department can connect print, broadcast and online media to experts—including researchers and practitioners—in a wide range of areas within psychology, counseling and community mental health, on topics such as trauma (PTSD), veterans, autism, depression and anxiety, addiction, bullying, immigration, school and workplace violence, and social media, among other relevant issues. We welcome your inquiries and can help meet your deadline.

As a nonprofit graduate psychology school with locations in downtown Los Angeles, Irvine, Chicago and Washington, D.C., campus security procedures are in place. Members of the media should contact a member of the Communications Department before arriving on campus for a story. This is to ensure arrangements with security and to accommodate for media needs as much as possible, as well as to respect the privacy of our students, faculty and staff.
