The University Center for the Child and Family (UCCF) is strongly committed to helping children and families enjoy a happier life, more satisfying relationships, and increased success at school or work.
In addition to clinical assessment and treatment, we also offer free and low-cost workshops throughout the year. Our workshops typically address topics such as parenting through separation and divorce, ADHD and learning disabilities, and developing coping skills.
