Our purpose is to provide professional counseling services to currently enrolled DU students as well as DU faculty and staff members. We see individuals with a wide range of problems from stress, homesickness, career decision-making, relationship problems and GLBTIQ related issues, to more serious concerns such as eating disorders, trauma, or depression and anxiety disorders. We have found that most clients can be helped in 1-6 sessions, although longer-term counseling may be available if necessary. When an individual's needs are beyond the scope of our services, we will help with referral options.
Consultation services provide planning, problem solving, and support for the University Community. Consultation is confidential and involves such issues as: departmental organization teambuilding, third party mediation, and supervisor consultation training. Whenever people are faced with a problem that involves complications due to human behavior patterns, the Center is available to assist.
Medication evaluations (when referred for such by the counseling or medical staff) are available from our psychiatrist, as is psychiatric hospitalization, if necessary.
Empolyee Assistance Program
The Employee Assistance Program is a confidential resource for faculty, administrators and staff. The University recognizes that personal stress affects not only an individual's life, but also the quality of an individual's work. The goal of the Employee Assistance Program is to minimize the effects of personal stress on both a person's life and his/her work.
Psychological assessment is available to assist in the diagnosis and the treatment of particular problems. Psychological testing can address drug/alcohol problems, personality issues, career decisions, learning disabilities, and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorders.
