The Child and Family Studies area (CFS) includes faculty and students from several
department programs including child-clinical, developmental, and school psychology
and represents all three of the department's PhD concentrations (Clinical, Experimental,
and School). The common core of faculty research interests is a commitment to examining
age-related changes in cognitive, emotional, and social functioning. Basic and applied
research projects are conducted in a variety of settings including day care programs,
homes, schools, and local community agencies. From this diversity, graduate students
can construct individualized programs of study and be involved with a wide variety
of research topics and populations.
The faculty and students have teaching assignments to courses related to the CFS area
and many provide supervised services through the department's Psychological Services
Center. Weekly meetings are held on Friday afternoons during which faculty, students,
and community service workers make presentations. Faculty and students from related
areas in and outside of the Psychology Department are invited to participate. For
