Specialized Units


The Units program offers advanced therapists the opportunity to specialize in working with specific client populations.

Our Units Program is geared towards advanced mental health practitioners who are looking to expand their practice to include specialization. 

We provide a client caseload, ongoing group supervision, personal office space, didactic mini-courses, Professional Development Seminars and the use of The Family Institute facilities including the Dr. Avraham Schwartzbaum Memorial Library which has a rich and varied selection of professional books, CDs, and DVDs. Special observation rooms with one way mirrors, as well as video recordings, are used extensively and are available for Unit members.

Those who successfully complete the Specialized Units Program of didactic studies and supervised clinical training will receive a Certificate of Specialization, as evidence of having satisfied the requirements of The Family Institute for training, experience, and competence.
