WSU psychology department offers free family checkup

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

Faculty and graduate students with the Wichita State University psychology department are offering Wichita-area residents the opportunity for a free family checkup for families with children ages 2-18.

The family checkup is an opportunity to explore questions, goals or concerns about your child, teen or family.

By teaming up with each family and using a variety of assessments, the family checkup strives to increase parenting knowledge and confidence, skills and effectiveness; enhance child and adolescent social and emotional development; improve behavior at home and school; handle developmental transitions (for younger children this includes potty training and/or sleep problems, school transitions such as starting school, going from elementary to middle school, or middle school to high school, and family changes); and enhance parent and/or adolescent self care.

This service can be provided in home or in WSU's clinic. Child care is available.

For more information or to schedule a visit, call (316) 978-6180 or e-mail famcheck@wichita.edu.
