Resiliency Center for Assessment and Treatment at the Unified Clinics

The Western Michigan University Resiliency Center for Families and Children (RCFC) was established in 2020 to address the multifaceted needs of those in our community. Our clinicians are universally trained to be trauma responsive, however, patients do not have to have a history of trauma to be seen. RCFC has three components:

  • Service - Resiliency Center for Assessment and Treatment: Pediatric Occupational Therapy and outpatient youth and family counseling services
  • Research - Qualitative studies in the areas of trauma assessment, caregiver co-regulation and sensory processing
  • Training - Providing professional development and WMU student training
