Case Studies

We admire and appreciate the thoughtful, compassionate assistance which counselors in this program give to their clients, and we know that each of us can be a teacher to others.

Inspired by Susan Rutherford in the University's Development Office, we have begun collecting brief anecdotes about cases where counseling made a difference in a family's life. Read Counseling Works!, a collection of case stories written by USF Center counselors.
