Alyssa Hufana and Elizabeth McGarry, graduate students at the Gevirtz School at UC Santa Barbara, have been awarded 2016-17 Ray E. Hosford Awards for Excellence in Professional Behavior. These awards are for service they performed at the Hosford Counseling and Psychological Services Clinic at UC Santa Barbara.
The Hosford Counseling & Psychological Services Clinic is a university-based community clinic that is designed to provide developmentally appropriate and culturally sensitive, low-cost individual, couple, family, and group psychological treatment and testing/assessment services to people living within the central coast community. The Hosford Clinic serves as a training site for students in the Department of Counseling, Clinical, and School Psychology (CCSP) of UC Santa Barbara and as a clinical-research facility for the faculty and students of the CCSP Department. It also strives to provide educational, consultation, and training services to professional and paraprofessional clinicians and educators in the tri-counties.
