LOGAN – Within the Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services at Utah State University is a clinical services center ready to provide services for students and also those living in the Cache Valley and Northern Utah Community.

The Sorenson Legacy Foundation Center’s mission statement says it all: “…to foster interdisciplinary collaboration that results in an improved quality of life for Utah residents.”

To that end, the Sorenson Center is about to host three new groups this spring: managing chronic pain, managing chronic tinnitus and supporting caregivers who suffer from burnout.

The groups offered vary in duration and subject matter and are designed to help people interact. Clinicians are experts in various services provided and are actively involved in each of the center’s group and workshop offerings.

Maria Kleinstaeuber, a clinical psychologist at the center, will supervise the chronic tinnitus group and monitor its progress. The group will meet weekly in 90-minute sessions for 12 weeks.

The chronic pain management group will meet in person for 90-minute sessions for eight weeks. Presenters will provide strategies where participants will work on pain-related thoughts and avoidance behavior.

The Caregiver Burnout workshop is designed to help full-time and long-term caregivers who are helping people with limitations. It is a Zoom webinar lasting for about two hours.
