CFC Practicum

The Child and Family Center houses a community clinic that serves children and families with mental health needs. The University of Oregon Counseling Psychology, Clinical Psychology, and School Psychology programs’ clinical practicum connects students with training at the CFC clinic, where their work focuses on providing interventions to children and families. Students enroll in the practicum for one year and have four or five families in their caseloads. They must successfully complete this part of their practicum sequence before they proceed to an internship. The university’s doctoral programs in psychology emphasize an ecological model of training, research, and practice, with a particular focus on prevention and treatment relevant to work with children, adolescents, families, and adults within their environments. As such, students combine theory and research with clinical practice.

Fifty to seventy-five families participate in the CFC clinic each year, and they pay for services on a sliding fee scale. Using the Family Check-Up model, doctoral students learn to deliver effective interventions to families in the community.

Dr. Jennifer Mauro’s clinical supervision ensures that the doctoral students receive adequate support for developing professional expertise, and that families and children benefit from these services. The participation of graduate students and undergraduate students in research and clinical service is integral to the success of CFC’s mission and to the success of families on the receiving end of that participation.

Dr. Elizabeth Stormshak, CFC director, teaches the CFC practicum program. Dr. Stormshak is a professor in the University of Oregon Counseling Psychology program.
