Families that qualify for the CCAP program can choose their own child care provider. The CCAP program will reimburse authorized child care providers up to a certain amount. Most eligible families share in the cost of care, called a co-payment, based on their income, family size and the number of children receiving child care subsidies. This fee is paid directly to the child care provider.

Parents can select the child care provider of their choice and, if necessary, may use more than one provider to meet their child care needs so long as the hours of care do not overlap. Options for child care include:

  • A DCYF licensed child care center or before/after-school program
  • A DCYF licensed family child care home
  • A license-exempt provider (such as a family member) that has received approval from DHS

Clinical Psychology #sas, #school #of #arts #and #sciences, #rutgers #university, #state


The clinical science program at Rutgers is designed for students with a primary interest in research and scholarship in addition to clinical practice. The majority of the faculty have a cognitive or behavioral approach to assessment and treatment, and the program is geared primarily to students who wish to receive this type of training. There are also more limited opportunities for students whose interests are eclectic and who may supplement training in cognitive behavior therapy with courses and supervised experiences in other approaches (e.g. family systems). For students whose primary interests are in the practice of clinical psychology, the University also offers graduate training in clinical psychology leading to the Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) degree through the separate Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology (GSAPP).

The Clinical Ph.D. program at Rutgers University has been an American Psychological Association accredited training program since 1965. Questions about APA accreditation status can be directed to the program or to the APA Office on Accreditation at (202) 336-5979, or by mail at 750 First St. NE, Washington, DC 20002-4242

We are a member of the Academy of Psychological Clinical Science, a coalition of doctoral and internship training programs that share a common goal of producing and applying scientific knowledge to the assessment, understanding, and amelioration of human problems. Membership in the Academy is granted only after a thorough peer review process. The Rutgers Clinical Ph.D. program was recently accredited by the Psychological Clinical Science Accreditation System, as well. Our membership in the Academy and accreditation by the Psychological Clinical Science Accreditation System indicates that we are committed to excellence in scientific training, and to using clinical science as the foundation for design, implementing, and evaluating assessment and intervention procedures. We view clinical psychology as a specialty area within the discipline of psychology, and believe that research, scholarship, and clinical application should be firmly grounded in the core knowledge base of psychology as a science.

The core clinical faculty are drawn from the Department of Psychology, the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology. the Center of Alcohol Studies. and the adjacent Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. The breadth of faculty interests and expertise in research permits students to create a program of study tailored to their particular scholarly interests. Clinical faculty conduct research on cognitive and behavior therapies, health psychology, psychophysiology, applied behavior analysis, prevention, substance abuse, emotional intelligence, cognitive functioning, eating disorders, anxiety disorders, and autism. Students have the opportunity to work with child, adolescent, adult, and older adult populations in multiple research labs at Rutgers and affiliated institutions.

The training approach relies heavily upon a mentorship model of training. Students are matched with a research mentor when they begin their graduate training program, and involve themselves in one or more research projects upon entering the program, initially as apprentices in ongoing projects, and subsequently as independent investigators. Students may study not only with clinical psychology faculty, but also with non-clinical researchers in the Psychology Department, and it is not uncommon for students to participate in more than one research group. Equally important is the goal of helping students to develop clinical skills. As in the research component of the program, our philosophy is that an apprenticeship model is most effective in teaching clinical skills. Students have available as role models a large number of faculty members who embody the clinical scientist concept. These faculty not only conduct research, but also are experienced clinical psychologists who are directly involved in clinical practice of various kinds. Students also have access to doctoral faculty in the Psy.D. program who focus primarily on clinical practice.

Our graduates consistently score well on the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP) exam and the vast majority go on to attain licensure to practice psychology. Despite this, our program is primarily a research-focused program and is not a good match for students interested in careers focused primarily on clinical service delivery. For additional information about Clinical Ph.D. program selection and admissions procedures, please see a website that provides information and resources that may be helpful in your graduate school selection process.

    Throughout the entire case, Mr. Churchill was highly professional and compassionate. The case was a very difficult one from a legal standpoint and through his knowledge of the law he was able to get an unexpectedly excellent result.

    I was very impressed with how Mr. Churchill handled my case. He obviously cared about getting a good result for me. When I heard him talk about my case, I got confident that he would get a good result, but never expected the case would get completely dismissed.

    Denver DUI Attorney

    The defense of a Denver DUI requires experience in a very specialized field. In addition to being well versed in evidentiary law. criminal law. and constitutional law. a good DUI attorney in Denver must understand the science behind your blood alcohol test. and have the experience to understand how the Denver police make DUI arrests. With 14 years of experience, Kevin Churchill has represented hundreds of clients in Colorado that have been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Experience in the field allows Mr. Churchill to uncover the weaknesses in the evidence against you. Every case is different, but the goal is always the same.

    To minimize the impact a DUI arrest has on your life by reducing the charges against you or having the charges dropped altogether.

    Kevin Churchill provides aggressive defense to all DUI charges in Denver and the surrounding Colorado counties. He is dedicated to protecting those accused of drunk driving in Colorado from unnecessary convictions and criminal penalties. Our clients do not plead guilty when a better outcome can be obtained. DUI and DWAI convictions can have life-changing consequences beyond the criminal court penalties involved. Those charged with DUI in Denver are typically everyday people such as commercial truck drivers or anyone else that must drive in order to make a living and support their family.

    Colorado DUI laws have recently changed to include more severe penalties for those convicted of driving under the influence. It is more important than ever to have an expert DUI attorney when you have been charged with a drunk driving offense. Any offense that occurred after July 1, 2010 has increased mandatory minimum jail sentences attached, as well as the possible revocation of your driver’s license. Mr. Churchill has represented those charged with DUI or DWAI in hundreds of cases. He handles cases throughout the Front Range and eastern Colorado. Please call our office immediately if you are facing charges, and by all means, do not plead guilty until an experienced attorney has thoroughly reviewed all aspects of your case.

    The consequences for a DUI conviction can include both lengthy jail sentences as well as the loss of your privilege to drive. Even first offenses carry a 9 month revocation of your driver’s license — and mandatory jail if your blood alcohol content is very high. Our first objective is to help you avoid a conviction altogether, and if that cannot be done, then to help you avoid unreasonably harsh penalties in Denver courts and at the Colorado DMV .

    The Cost of a DUI in Denver, Colorado
    There are hefty court costs, fines, probation costs, alcohol treatment costs, increased insurance premiums, lost job opportunities, and so on. The fee that you will pay to have expert legal representation can be small by comparison. Drunk driving is a criminal offense, but with the added complexity of having scientific evidence that is unique to these types of cases. This is why it is best to hire a lawyer that specializes in DUI defense cases. Many people incorrectly assume that there is no chance to beat the case against them. It requires someone well-versed in this specialized field of law to help you determine if a conviction can be avoided in your particular case. Rarely are those breaks in the prosecutor’s case apparent to someone who does not regularly practice law in this field. When a conviction cannot be avoided, it will help a great deal to have an attorney work to minimize the penalties that you will face in court – especially on second or subsequent offenses.

    The defense of your case will involve many layers of analysis, beginning with the constitutionality, or legality, of your traffic stop (or contact from the police for whatever reason). If the police did not have reasonable suspicion or probable cause to stop you to begin with, then all of the evidence against you must be thrown out. If the evidence is legally admissible against you – then the analysis turns to the reliability and credibility of the evidence itself. With field sobriety tests being given incorrectly, breath machines committing testing errors, police failing to follow procedures, and evidence being improperly collected – many of those charged with DUI simply accept a conviction when there are DUI defense arguments .

    Your guilt or innocence under Colorado DUI law rests on evidence that must be closely examined before you plead guilty to any drug or alcohol driving offense. The penalties for a DUI conviction are too great to ignore the possibility that the evidence against you is wrong. Experienced drunk driving defense involves never accepting the evidence on its face. We will scrutinize the evidence that other lawyers may assume can’t be defeated, because we understand that DUI evidence is much more complicated than meets the eye. Please give our office a call. Mr. Churchill will directly answer any questions you may have regarding your case, and give you advice about what you should do to protect your criminal record and your driver’s license.

    We offer some advice about what to do when you have been pulled over on our page entitled DUI Arrest Advice. However, most people come to our website after they have already been arrested, and are now looking for advice on what steps to take to protect themselves:

    The Steps You Should Take After You Have Been Arrested:

    1. Do not make any statements to the police. In fact, it is better to hand them your driver’s license and other identification than it is to speak when they ask who you are. Certainly, the officer is going to note in his report that you had slurred speech – even in cases where you did not.
    2. Request a Colorado DMV hearing within seven days of taking a breath test or within seven days of refusing to take the test. In blood test cases, request a DMV hearing as soon as you are notified by the DMV of a pending license revocation. Always ask for the officer to be present.
    3. Retain an experienced Denver DUI lawyer to evaluate your case before the first court date, or the DMV hearing date. The sooner you hire a lawyer, the better, since it may take some time to answer the necessary questions of your particular case.
    4. Do not plead guilty, or assume that you are guilty. Contrary to what most people think, there are DUI defense arguments that can be used in most cases. DUI and DUID cases involve very complex evidence that must be collected by the police in a lawful manner, as well as a scientifically valid manner. Experienced representation is the only way to discover if the police, and the prosecution, have what they need to convict you.

    Kevin Churchill has 14 years of experience providing DUI and DMV hearing defense representation in all Denver metro area courts. Kevin Churchill offers experienced defense for all DUI related charges, as well as all criminal charges related to the DUI case, including felony drug possession, domestic violence, and assault.

    New to Maryland Titling and Registering Your Vehicle Information #mva, #motor


    As a new resident of Maryland you must register your vehicle within 60 days of moving to Maryland. If you delay beyond 60 days, you will not be eligible for a tax credit for any titling tax paid in another state, and you may be subject to a citation for an out of state registration.

    Please Note: If an owner of a vehicle originally titled in Maryland obtains a title for the vehicle in another state in the same name, and returns to Maryland, it may be registered by surrendering the foreign title and securing a Duplicate Maryland Title. There is a fee for a duplicate title.

    Titling Your Vehicle

    You can apply for a Maryland title, and registration, in person at any of the MVA’s full service branch offices. You also can mail the documents to the MVA’s Out-of-State Title Unit, 6601 Ritchie Highway, Glen Burnie, MD 21062, or go to an MVA licensed tag and title service where they will assist you in applying.

    Typically, you will need to submit the following forms to obtain a title for your vehicle:

    • Proof of ownership – This is the vehicle’s existing title that identifies you as the owner. If there is a lien against your out-of-state title:
      • First, contact the MVA at the Customer Service Center at 1-410-768-7000.
      • If you do not have the title document or certificate, the MVA will provide you with a letter (form #VR-056) to send to your lien holder requesting the title(s) be sent to the MVA. Note: Please have the following information for the letter: Name of vehicle owner, MD address, phone number, VIN number, year, make of vehicle,lien holder’s name, lien holder’s address,lien holder’s fax number, state where currently registered/titled and lien account number.
      • Upon receipt of the title documents(s), the MVA will write or call you to inform you that we have received the title(s). We will inform you of the excise tax due and ask you to send your completed Application for Certificate of Title (form #VR-005), the MD Safety Inspection Certificate, and payment (check or money order made payable to the MVA) to the MVA. The check should include payment for the following:
        • Title fee
        • Fee to record the lien
        • Excise tax and tag fees
    • Application form – The Application for Certificate of Title (form #VR-005) can be used to apply for both the vehicle’s title and registration. Be sure to include your insurance information. Your policy must conform to Maryland’s minimum liability insurance requirements .
    • Maryland Safety Inspection Certificate – This Maryland State Police form certifies that your vehicle meets Maryland safety standards. It is valid for up to 90 days from the date issued.
      • Certificate of Inspection
        A Safety Inspection is required for all used cars, trucks, tractors, trailers, motorcycles, special equipment, and class “B” for hire vehicles being titled and registered in Maryland. They must be inspected by a licensed Maryland inspection station, such as automobile dealers, service stations and specialized automobile service centers. A certificate of inspection issued by the inspection station within the previous 90 days of the vehicle titling must accompany the Application for Title. To avoid delay, compare the vehicle identification number (VIN) entered on the inspection certificate with the VIN on the vehicle plus the vehicle ownership documents to make certain they agree. Altered inspection certificates will not be accepted.

    Under certain circumstances, additional information and/or forms may be required:

    • Proof of vehicle’s value – If the vehicle’s value cannot be identified by the MVA, you may need to submit a bill of sale. For leased vehicles, a lease agreement may also be acceptable.
    • Lease agreement and proof of monthly lease payments (leased vehicles only) – If you have paid or are paying excise tax to another state through your lease payments, the documents may be needed to determine the amount of excise tax credit you may receive.
    • Lien information – If you borrowed money to buy the vehicle, lien information may need to be recorded on the application. The MVA form entitled Security Interest Filing (form #VR-217) must be used if a second lien is placed against the title.
    • Lien release – If your title indicates that a lien exists, you must make arrangements with the lien holder to pay off the loan (lien) or the MVA will file the lien against your new title (i.e. transfer the lien).
    • Power of attorney – If someone other than you, the new owner, is signing the titling forms for you, this document is required.

    Note that if you also intend to register the vehicle, additional forms are usually needed

    Registration requirements vary greatly by the type and intended use of the vehicle. The requirements for most vehicles can be found in Registration – Common Vehicles.

    Your title will be mailed to you regardless of how you apply. If you also register the vehicle, your registration card, license plates and expiration stickers can be provided immediately when you apply in person to the MVA; otherwise, these items also will be mailed to you.

    Maryland Excise Titling Tax

    If the vehicle has been recently purchased, the 6% excise tax is based on the greater of the total purchase price verified by a notarized MVA Bill of Sale (form VR-181). signed by both the buyer(s) and the seller(s) in which the actual price paid for the vehicle is stated or $640. In other cases, the total purchase price or the valuation shown in a national publication of used car values adopted for use by the Administration will be used to establish the tax. There is an addition or subtraction for high or low mileage. On vehicles seven years old and older, the tax is based on the greater of the purchase price or the minimum book value of $640.

    Note: As a new resident, to comply with Maryland law and take advantage of a lower excise tax, you must title and register your vehicle within 60 days of declaring residency in Maryland.

    For vehicles less than 7 years old (Non-Residents):

    • Vehicle(s) titled in a state with a tax rate equal to or higher than Maryland’s 6% tax rate will cost $100.
    • If the vehicle is registered in a state that imposes no tax, the tax will be assessed at 6% of the value of the vehicle.
    • Vehicles from a state with a lower tax rate than Maryland’s 6% will be taxed at the rate of the difference between the two states. Example: MD 6%, VA 4%, the difference is a 2% tax rate. Minimum tax – $100. When the value of the vehicle is less than $2,000, the 6% rate will apply. Click here for the State Tax Rate Chart .

    For a vehicle over 7 years old:

    • Tax is based on the greater of the purchase price or the minimum of $640. The MVA may require you to submit additional documentation to substantiate the purchase price.

    For a leased vehicle:

    • Lease agreement and proof of monthly lease payments (leased vehicles only) – If you have paid or are paying excise tax to another state through your lease payments, documentation is needed to determine the amount of excise tax credit you may receive.

    Driver Licensing Informationis also available for new Maryland residents.

In addition, if you are pulled over and the officer asks you to take a blood, urine or breath test you are required to comply. Florida has the “Implied Consent Law”. When you sign your drivers license you have agreed to take these tests upon request. Refusal to take any of the tests will result in an immediate suspension for one year. A second refusal will result in an 18 month suspension.

    2011 DUI Statistics

    According to Florida DMV records there were 33,625 DUI convictions in Florida in 2011. Of the 55,722 DUI tickets issued in Florida in 2011 – 9,328 were issued by the FHP, 23,649 were issued by police departments in Florida, and 21,868 were issued by Florida Sheriffs departments.

The .02 limit really means that you cannot have a single drink and drive. And that’s the idea.

    For drivers over 21 the legal limit in Florida is .08. Regardless of your age be aware that drinking and driving is considered a serious offense. Below we have summarized the penalties in the state of Florida for a first offense DUI, but the average cost including legal defense, fines, and auto insurance increases is $8000.
