The Family Assessment Clinic (FAC) was developed in 1985 in response to a request for proposals from the Michigan Department of Social Services for multidisciplinary teams that would provide assessments and consultation on cases of families and children involved in the public child welfare system in the state of Michigan. FAC now accepts referrals from a variety of agencies and institutions, including public child welfare agencies in Michigan and other states. Cases are referred by the Michigan Department of Human Services, courts, other social agencies and families and individuals.
The FAC is a multidisciplinary program, comprised of staff, faculty, and graduate students in the University of Michigan Schools of Psychology, Social Work, Law and Medicine; as well as graduate students from other universities in Southeast Michigan. The Clinic is child-centered, family-focused, culturally responsive and dedicated to the assessment and treatment of children and families who may have experienced trauma and maltreatment through physical abuse, sexual abuse and/or neglect. FAC works to prevent child maltreatment and endangerment, through education of the community and the training of students and professionals.
