Service Program

Telephone Intakes

Interns will be trained in our telephone triage system. Interns will learn how to quickly assess cases and make an appropriate disposition, as well as discern the need for immediate services.

Individual Counseling

Interns will provide individual psychotherapy for a broad range of concerns, ranging from developmental issues to serious mental health problems. Interns will be trained in both short-term and longer-term therapy models. The average number of sessions for clients at CHC is 5.6; however, Counseling Services does not currently have a session limit.

Group Counseling

Interns are encouraged to either co-lead an existing group or to develop a group based on their interests and studentsí needs.

Assessment

Interns will conduct clinical interviews, administer various testing batteries, and write psychological reports. They will coordinate with our Office of Disability Accommodation to assist students with accommodations.

Crisis Intervention

In the spring semester, interns will provide walk-in crisis services for students in immediate need.

Outreach

Interns will have the opportunity to be involved in a variety of outreach programming with the university community. If this is a primary area of interest for interns, they can tailor this experience to fit their goals.

Consultation

Interns will consult regularly with the psychiatrist and the staff in Student Health. They will also have the opportunity to participate in the Eating Disorders Treatment Team if interested. Interns may also participate in university committees and will be involved in regular programming within the Division of Student Life.
