Welcome! We're so glad you came by to visit our web site. The Center exists to make life better for children and families. Learn about our mission and scope, our history and our training objectives.

In our pages you will be able to read in detail about the model of School-Based Family Counseling as well as Counseling Works!, a collection of case stories written by USF Center counselors. And please take a moment to review the Disastershock Handbook which contains invaluable information for responding to crises of all kinds, from minor to immense.

In addition, you will find information on the international conferences sponsored by the Center: the annual Oxford Symposium in School-Based Family Counseling and the Council for Human Rights of Children, chaired by Cloe Madanes, H.D.L.
