This major area of study within the APA-accredited Clinical Program is designed to provide systematic training in research and clinical skills as they apply to problems of children, adolescents, couples, and families.  It trains research-oriented clinical psychologists having a specialty interest in children, adolescents, couples, and families.  The program builds on a foundation of coursework and applied experiences in normal and atypical development, child/adolescent/family assessment, and child/adolescent/family intervention.  Opportunities are available to develop "special concentrations" in selected areas of expertise, such as advanced statistics and methodology, developmental psychology, pediatric health, and special education, among others; compatible training in pediatric health issues is also available.  South Florida's diverse ethnic communities provide unique opportunities for multicultural research and clinical training.  The graduate programs place an emphasis on integrating a multicultural perspective in the evaluation, treatment, and prevention of child and family psychopathology.
