Programs

Family Resiliency Project

The Family Resiliency Project (FRP) is an exciting program sponsored by the JFK University Community Center in Concord. The FRP provides case management and family therapy services to at-risk, low-income families whose children attend schools in the surrounding communities. These services aim to support families in building skills that will enable them to work together as a family unit more effectively to increase their children’s academic and personal success and help the family become more resilient in the face of societal pressures and struggles. The FRP will soon be implementing Functional Family Therapy (FFT), an evidence-based practice for addressing a range of emotional and behavioral issues of youth and their families.

School-Based Programs

Graduate-level psychology students and post-master’s interns provide on-site counseling services at elementary, middle, and high schools, and community college campuses. John F. Kennedy University counselors are supervised by experienced clinicians licensed in psychology, social work, and marriage and family therapy. Services to schools include individual and group counseling with youth and adult students, as well as collaterals with parents. JFK University students may also provide psycho-education, parent workshops, and teacher and administrative consultation. Types of issues addressed include: behavioral problems, abuse, academic difficulties, peer relationship conflicts, self-esteem, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, family changes, and other developmental and adjustment challenges. Counseling utilizes a variety of treatment approaches, such as expressive arts, play therapy, cognitive behavioral techniques, talk therapy, and group work. Services are tailored to the needs of the clients and interests of the schools being served.

The Counseling Centers serve schools in the following districts:

  • Cupertino Unified School District
  • Diablo Unified School District
  • Antioch School District
  • Pittsburg Unified School District
  • Martinez Unified School District
  • Contra Costa Community College District
