WELCOME

Welcome to the Family and Community Intervention Lab (FCI)! This lab is under the direction of Dr. Lauren Quetsch, a faculty member in the Department of Psychological Science in the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville. The FCI Lab is located in Memorial Hall on the University of Arkansas campus, but efforts related to the lab are conducted inside the Department’s Psychological Clinic, in the greater Fayetteville area, and beyond.

Dr. Quetsch attained her BA from Georgetown University in Washington, DC and then went on to gain her MS and PhD at West Virginia University in Morgantown. Her research and clinical interests are in the area of Dissemination and Implementation Science with a focus on providing treatments for underserved families and children with disruptive behavior disorders. More recently, Dr. Quetsch’s work has explored adapting evidence-based treatments (e.g., Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, Multisystemic Therapy) for children on the autism spectrum.

CORONAVIRUS / COVID-19

We are still accepting clients in our clinic, but in-person services are currently suspended and all therapeutic treatments are provided via telehealth (a video-conferencing system). The clinic has been closely monitoring the spread of the novel COVID-19 and governmental recommendations regarding how best to respond to this evolving public health concern.

If you would like to schedule an appointment, join a study, or would just like more information, please contact us at the following email: fcilab@uark.edu.

The FCI lab team is focused on promoting equality. We celebrate multiple approaches and points of view and are committed to having a team that reflects the communities we serve.
