About the Clearinghouse

Clearinghouse authors represent practitioners in hospitals, colleges, universities, public agencies, and private practice, as well as graduate-level students studying group counseling. Approximately 80 of these programs are distributed through the central office of The Clearinghouse located at the University of Texas at Austin Counseling & Mental Health Center (CMHC).

We review the programs for completeness and for goals and objectives, but we do not require effectiveness or outcome data. The sole purpose of the Clearinghouse is to serve as an idea and information exchange to help mental health professionals develop programming by taking advantage of the ideas of others.

The Clearinghouse was established by David J. Drum, Ph.D. and others in the 1980s at the University of Rhode Island and it has been headquartered at CMHC since 1990. Currently it is directed by Chris Brownson, Ph.D., Associate Vice President and Director at CMHC, The University of Texas at Austin. Janet Bensman serves as Clearinghouse Coordinator. Dr. Drum continues as a consultant on the project. The address for the central office is:
