Understanding Children and Families

 


The Understanding Children and Families Laboratory in the Department of Psychology at the University of Central Florida is dedicated to bettering the lives of children and their families.  Currently, we are conducting a variety of applied research studies that examine relationships among parenting and child characteristics, the effectiveness of different parenting interventions, and the effectiveness of interventions meant to address psychological symptoms in young children.  We also provide a variety of psychological assessment and intervention services, some of which are linked to our research,  through the Psychology Clinic in the Department of Psychology at the University of Central Florida and through community outreach.
