New Chicago School of Professional Psychology Forensic Center Opens Doors to the Community
Date:1/30/2009

's initiatives including instruction of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). The facility is equipped with a one-way mirror and a separate observation room that will allow the use of a "bug-in-the-ear" communication system to facilitate observation and discreet coaching by therapists to parents as they interact with their children. Because PCIT is empirically based, it carries the endorsement of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services as a recognized model for helping families with a history of abuse. Although it is a therapy that has been shown to be effective with abusive families in several states, few Illinois practitioners have been trained in its use.

The Forensic Center is staffed by Chicago School Forensic Psychology Department faculty, who collectively bring years of experience and expertise to the initiative. Although launched with a single program, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, the center has since expanded to include a wide range of short-term services that address issues of delinquency, child maltreatment, pre- and post-transitional living for offenders, and victim-related trauma. In addition, the center offers professional development and continuing education workshops. The center was developed under the leadership of Dr. Mike Fogel, department chair; Dr. Darlene Perry, executive director; and Dr. Tiffany Masson, director of the center.

"With students working alongside faculty gaining hands-on experience and direct supervision, we have provided psychological services to ex-offenders to address factors that lead to increased rates of recidivism," said Dr. Fogel at the event. "We have provided parent training to individuals working toward reunification with their child or children after a finding of child abuse or neglect. And we have assessed the effectiveness of a high school to college program for youth in care and a life skills program for gang involved youth."
