Bonding/Sibling Studies


CPI is contracted with Fresno County’s Department of Social Services to conduct court ordered bonding or sibling studies. Through several appointments, the qualified clinician will complete a full evaluation, investigation and assessment, intended to provide the court with a comprehensive examination of the health, safety, welfare and best interests of the child(ren).

Issues the clinician addresses in the evaluation will include the evaluator’s recommendations based on what he/she perceives to be in the best interest of the client and what is necessary to promote the development, emotional health and psychological well-being of the client.

Our clinicians are qualified licensed mental health clinicians that have completed all requirements to conduct such studies.

Our agency is currently conducting all court ordered studies in the Fresno County area.

If you have received a referral for a court ordered study, please contact the front office at (559) 256-2000
