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.
The Family and Community Intervention Lab conducts research related to the dissemination and implementation (D&I) of evidence-based treatments for underserved children and families. Efforts in the lab are focused on creating new knowledge and lasting improvements in community-based mental health services by (a) promoting access to evidence-based mental health care for all families, (b) reducing barriers to treatment, and (c) evaluating methods to improve clinician/provider training and treatment sustainability.
