There are 3 types of labs in the faculty: laboratories for supporting practicum activities, labs for research and a lab for community services. Laboratories for supporting courses include the Psychodiagnostic lab, and the Physiological Lab. Laboratories for research include the Center for Indigenous and Cultural Psychology and the Center for Public Mental Health and the Inclusive Pre-School Child Education lab is for community service.
The psychodiagnostic lab accommodates practicum activities for the courses intelligence assessment, aptitude assessment, projective personality assessment and non-projective personality assessment. Although the lab has its collection of assessment tools however it has not been able to keep the tools updated. The faculty plans to revitalize the lab’s assessment tools to meet the most current demands of the society.
The faculty is currently preparing to revitalize its physiological lab. Previously this lab supported the course physiological psychology. Due to a change of the curriculum, the faculty planned to modify the structure and content of the course to be able to accommodate the contemporary demands of research in biopsychology. The course was then changed to biopsychology which required the procurement of more advanced practicum facilities. Currently the faculty is in the process of actualizing plans to create a lab for advanced research in biopsychology which will aid practicum activities for the biopsychology course.
