The most frequent of these interactions involve three areas: behavioral pharmacology and substance abuse, research applying operant behavioral procedures to managing autistic and mentally retarded individuals, and the Industrial and Organizational Psychology doctoral program.

Clinical graduate students are encouraged to take courses and work with faculty in other departments at Auburn. Many students take courses and collaborate with faculty and students in Counseling Psychology, Human Development and Family Studies, Pharmacology, and the School of Business.
