We are proud to be a member of our North Central Florida and Florida communities and to have the opportunities to be involved in state and local organizations and efforts.

Clinical Psychology Associates of North Central Florida (CPANCF) was awarded a Saphire Award from the City of Gainesville during it's 2004 Small Business Development Week for provision of EAP services to City of Gainesville employees.


CPANCF donated to the Children’s Miracle Network Dance Marathon.  One of our office interns, Brianna Parlette participated in the Dance Marathon where she danced for 26.2 hours to raise money and awareness for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. We also sponsored a Christmas Event with Santa and Toys for Wounded Warrior children in the Ocala Ballroom. 

 We greatly appreciate the awards and recognition that have been bestowed on our practice and providers and will strive to continue to be worthy of the respect and honor of those we serve and the community in general.

Ernest Bordini, Ph.D.

After serving on a discussion panel for the Gainesville Fire & Rescue in 2013, Dr. Ernest Bordini published two original articles in the Carolina Fire Rescue EMS Journal. He discusses alcohol and prescription drug problems in firefighters and first responders; suicide and contributors of stress and PTSD, as well as indicators and behavioral signs of alcohol or drug intoxication, impairment and after-effects. More information and the articles can be found here. Since that time Dr. Bordini has also presented on violence risk assessment at the American Psychological Association Annual Convention in Washington, D.C. and on the topic of school shooting risk assessments at a conference held at Santa Fe College,

The Florida Psychological Association North Central Florida Chapter awarded Dr. Bordini with a Distinguished Service Award in December 2003 "In Recognition of His Work and Contributions to Psychology". Dr. Bordini and his co-author's review concerning issues in the assessment of malingering versus brain injury, which appeared in the journal Neurorehabilitation, is available for download on our website. This continues to be our most requested download. Dr. Bordini has also co-authored articles in the areas of alcohol research, neuropsychological assessment of formaldehyde exposure, use of the Mini-Mental Status Examination (MMSE) for dementia and pharmacological treatments in brain injury.

Dr. Bordini has presented professional and community talks on the topics of Suicide Risk management, ADHD, Private Practice, Managed Care, Psychology Supervision, and has contributed articles to Gainesville Parents Magazine on preventing childhood head injuries. Dr. Bordini gave a talk on private practice aspects of psychology at the University of Florida in September, 2004. In January, 2005 he presented a talk on “Taming the ADHD Child”, teaching social and coping skills at the local CHADD Chapter.  

Dr. Bordini participated in a panel discussion for Human Resource Professionals on April 14, 2005 in Gainesville Florida. For the topic titled “Lessons Learned from the Hurricanes”, he discussed his experience during the hurricanes that involved administering the City of Gainesville Employee Assistance Program. Additional panel members included officials from Gainesville Regional Utilities, the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office; the North Central Florida American Red Cross; and Mr. Storm Roberts, Morning Show Host, WKTK FM 98.5.  

He co-presented two workshops at the Florida Psychological Association summer convention in Sarasota, FL.  These involved psychological aspects of weapons safety and dealing with potentially violent clients.  Dr. Bordini became an NRA Certified Pistol Instructor in April 2006 and along with instructors from the Defensive Training Group has conducted NRA Basic Pistol training for psychologists and other health professionals. 

Dr. Bordini, during his service as a Courtesy Clinical Assistant Professor in Psychiatry at the University of Florida, provided a series of quarterly lectures on forensic aspects of psychological testing to the Forensic Psychiatry Fellows.



Did you know that all of our licensed psychologists are certified to provide services for State of Florida Workers Compensation? We welcome referrals for plaintiff or defense IMEs as well as for psychotherapy.

Dr. Bordini served as an Florida Psychological Association (FPA) point-person in the 2003 Workers Compensation legislative changes. Unfortunately the changes were felt to be a major defeat for mental health services to Florida workers. His comments were published in an issue of the National Psychologist.

Dr. Bordini served as a past Florida Psychological Association Insurance and Practice Chairperson and recently completed a tenure as FPA Insurance co-chair from 2006-2008.  He had urged FPA to support efforts to pass the Florida Worker's Compensation First Responder Bill.  This passed into legislation in June 2007.  For firefighters, law enforcement and other first-responders, this restores some of the benefits lost in the 2003 law changes.


Drs. Bordini has participated in the City of Gainesville Violence Avoidance Committee since 2005 as part of our services to the City through our Employee Assistance Program. We appreciated the opportunity to contribute to the City's efforts to provide a safe workplace for its employees.  In 2006-2009 Our staff has provided on-site services in terms of dealing with serious medical issues, and provided a series of presentations on depression, resilience and medical illness.  We are proud to announce that we have been serving the City of Gainesville by providing EAP services for more than 20 years.



Visit our ADHDASSESSMENT.COM website which now features a selection of books on ADHD and Learning Disabilities as well as articles about ADHD ASSESSMENT and Alachua County School System ADHD Accommodations. Our new website ADHD-THERAPY.COM has more articles about dealing with ADHD. Watch for future development of our PEDIATRIC NEUROPSYCHOLOGY website. We are accepting referrals of parents of ADHD or Oppositional children for parent groups starting in Fall 2005. These groups focus on developing social skills, anger management skills and dealing with teasing. They are most appropriate for children with Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, social anxiety disorder, or nonverbal learning disabilities.

In late 2007 we assumed ownership of NeuropsychologyCentral.Com, a collaborative website with national and international prominence.  It hosts forums, links to resources, as well as educational content concerning neuropsychology.
