Family Studies and Intervention Strategies - PhD in Human Services


Return to: PhD in Human Services  

The Family Studies and Intervention Strategies specialization provides students with an understanding of the utilization of advanced clinical theory and research methodology within a unique, client-centered ecological context. Students are exposed to a broad spectrum of theoretical and clinical approaches to intervention, which emphasize the special needs of ethnic and racial minority, gay and lesbian, single-parent, and low-income families. Graduates are particularly skilled at developing multi-modal therapeutic approaches and recognizing special treatment considerations within a diverse client delivery system.
