The CEW-RC seeks to promote the emotional, educational, and physical well-being of all children and families.
We strive to work with diverse and underserved populations, to support individuals who dedicate their lives to helping others, and to ensure that our work is always culturally informed and evidence based.
CIFFTA Prevention and Treatment Research
Our program of treatment and research has focused on the development and testing of more engaging, efficacious, and cost-effective interventions for disadvantaged and underserved youth and families. Our innovative adaptive intervention (CIFFTA) that can be tailored to the unique adolescent and family cultural and clinical needs has been accepted into the National Registry of Evidence Based Programs and Practices.
The Dunspaugh Dalton Foundation has generously supported the Community and Educational Well-Being Research Center since 2009.
NIDA has supported the development and testing of family-based interventions for Latino and Hispanic youth and families including CIFFTA.
NIMHD has funded the development and testing of the CIFFTA and the innovative integration of technology (Computer Assisted CIFFTA) into the counseling process.
