About Our CFC Program
Clinical Family Coaching has been innovating clinical services in the behavioral health system since 2011. It is a whole family treatment and support model based on the science of applied behavior analysis (ABA). CFC is a graduation-based program that families participate in for 6 to 12 months. 75% of families who have participated in CFC have successfully graduated with behavioral and quality of life gains that maintain long after graduation.
The role of Clinical Technician is to collaborate with their clinical teams led by Board Certified Behavior Analysts providing direct support to children, teens, and adults participating in the program.
Clinical Technicians receive extensive training, frequent and thorough supervision, professional development twice per month, and the opportunity learn from and collaborate with behavioral health experts.
If you are interested in a career in the field of ABA therapy long-term, we offer a career path to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).
If you plan to explore other behavioral health fields in the future, this experience will serve you well in many roles including counselor, psychologist, special education teacher, etc. We have many other clinical services and professionals at AZA United that collaborate with our ABA team to provide interdisciplinary care for families, so everyone is always learning and improving quality of life for families.
