Family Interaction Skills Clinic

Dr. David J.

FISC consultants designed and implemented a grant-funded project examining the impact of a manualized teacher-training program, Teacher Child Interaction Training (NU-TCIT), at Head Start and developed a behavior observation tool, Campbell-Martin Behavior Observation of Preschoolers System (CAMBOPS-40), for use in early childhood settings. Project SAFE research examined the heterogeneity of sexual abuse sequelae and family dimensions of assessment and treatment for children and adolescents who have been abused.
