Dean E. Barley was appointed director of the Brigham Young University Comprehensive Clinic during winter semester, taking over from Russell Crane, who completed four years of service as director.
“Each of us knows someone who struggles with mental or emotional health problems,” Barley said. “The clinical research we perform is making significant contributions that impact the way clinic services are delivered. Our goal at the clinic is to work together to ensure those struggling with mental and emotional health issues discover a pathway to recovery.”
Adam Moore, a recent graduate of the marriage and family therapy doctoral training program at BYU, was also named assistant director and will work with Barley to increase the clinic’s capacity to serve the Utah County and BYU communities.
“The Comprehensive Clinic is such a unique asset to our community,” Moore said. “It provides high-quality, low-cost services to individuals, couples and families from all walks of life while simultaneously training new generations of clinicians. I’m thrilled to be a part of the work that goes on here and to continue to improve the delivery of much-needed services to community members.”
For more than 30 years, the BYU Comprehensive Clinic has offered a wide range of assessment and counseling services for individuals, couples and families in the Utah County community.
Counseling services are provided by graduate interns from the psychology, marriage and family therapy and social work programs at BYU. In addition to counseling services, the clinic continuously conducts research to discover more effective ways to help individuals and families become mentally and emotionally healthy.
