Dr. Susan F. Branco
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Clinical Assistant Professor with the Family Institute at Northwestern University in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling masters program. I enjoy teaching and supervising emergent professional counselors. If you are interested in working with me for supervision purposes please visit here.
MY LATEST RESEARCH
I was recently awarded a Seed Grant from the Family Institute at Northwestern University to pursue research on the experiences of adult internationally adopted Colombian adults who are in reunion with their first families. I look forward to collaborating with my research team on this exciting project in 2021! I continue working with a team of researchers using directive content analysis to examine reality TV counselor and client sessions. Individually, I am researching reparative models to address illicit adoption practices in order to draft a proposed model for Colombian international adoption practices.
