Research, Teaching, and Training Facility
The Center is a research, teaching and training facility for the doctoral students in the Marriage and Family Therapy program. One or more clinical faculty individually supervises each student. All clinic supervisors have American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) Approved Supervisor status. The clinical faculty conducts supervision, in accordance with COAMFTE guidelines, using a balanced mix of traditional live, videotaped, and case presentation supervision strategies with both individual therapists and with groups of therapists.
The audio-visual resources of the Center are state-of-the-art for both clinical supervision and process research. Each treatment room is equipped with cameras that remotely zoom and pan. These feed into a standard and digital storage bank -- which includes the Landros Play Analyzer System. (We can store, code, and immediately recall for supervision/research 23,000 hours of therapeutic interaction.) In addition, there are three computer stations available for the students therapists.
