The Couples and Family Therapy (CFT) Program at the University of Oregon College of Education (COE) will host a “Relationship Check-In” from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9 at the HEDCO Clinic on the UO campus. Any and all couples are welcome to attend this event, at which master’s-level therapists conduct free one-time sessions to celebrate and recognize strengths in relationships.
The event is modeled after similar programs the COE has conducted in the past, as recently as 2009. CFT Clinical Director Dr. Tiffany Brown says the combination of a service to the community and a learning opportunity is a win-win.
"This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone wanting to check in about their relationship,” Brown says. “During each session, therapists will spend time with each couple or family and discuss how things are going in their relationship(s) and talk about strategies to work toward their goals. Individuals, couples and families are welcome, and we look forward to helping everyone get more out of their relationships. You may learn new things about yourself, your loved one, and/or your relationship. It is also a chance to check out our new clinic space and meet with couples and family therapists who are working toward their degree."
Sessions will last approximately 50 minutes. Interested couples are encouraged to call the clinic at 541-346-0923 to make an appointment, though walk-ins on the day of the event are also welcome. Referrals can be offered, and participants will receive a participatory gift.
