For Families and IndividualsThe UCF Counselor Education program offers free counseling services and relationship education workshops to the Central Florida community.
Over 1,200 individuals receive free services annually.
The Community Counseling and Research Center (CCRC), housed in the Education Complex, offers free, individual, couple and family counseling sessions, and on occasion, group-counseling programs. With the exception of short semester breaks, the CCRC operates weekdays and evenings throughout the year. Counseling sessions are usually 45 - 50 minutes in length. Clients are accepted on a first come, first served basis.
The primary purpose of the Seminole County Public Schools (SPCS) & UCF College of Education and Human Performance (UCF-CEDHP) Partnership is to provide counseling services at no cost to students and their families within their own community (elementary schools), promoting their academic and personal-social development. The counseling services are provided at Hamilton and Midway Elementary Schools. The counseling sessions last approximately 50 minutes and include weekly meetings. The counseling sessions are facilitated by Master’s and doctoral level counselors-in-training that are under the direct supervision of an appropriately credentialed clinical supervisor.
If you are interested in having your child participate in this research and receive counseling services at no cost at Hamilton Elementary School of Engineering and Technology or Midway Elementary School of the Arts, contact Coralis Solomon.
