Child Guidance Clinic
Los Angeles, California

Child Guidance



This 40,000 square foot school and counseling center for abused children provides a variety of services, including child abuse and neglect prevention, a therapeutic pre-school, adolescent and after-school day treatment centers, a job training and placement center, and outpatient services. The contemporary design provides a positive community identity and welcoming atmosphere to children. Functional separation of mental health treatment areas from family counseling services and separation of pre-schoolers from older children was achieved by close attention to entrances and internal circulation throughout the building.  In addition to academic classrooms and basic job skills, the clinic teaches adult living skills using a mock apartment.
