Family Learning Program (FLP)

Teams & Therapists

Our therapists have come from all over the U.S. and even from other countries to study in this unique training program. They often have had experience with the issues of child abuse and neglect even before coming to Florida Tech.

Providing therapy and evaluation for these families requires specialized training. Our therapists are all working toward a doctoral degree in the Clinical Psy.D. program at Florida Tech, and most have master's degrees. They have had special training in dealing with issues of sexual abuse and/or dependency evaluations. They are sensitive to the needs of each child victim and family members impacted by child abuse and neglect.

Safety Planning

Safety planning is such an important part of the Family Learning Program that we have one clinician dedicated entirely to ensuring each family has a thorough and updated safety plan to implement in their home. Safety plans include ways of behaving at home which can help to prevent revictimization.
