Additional Job Description
ABOUT THE WAKE FOREST UNIVERSITY COUNSELING CENTER
Comprised of 10 licensed mental health professionals, two doctoral psychology interns, two masters counseling interns, and two administrative staff, the WFU Counseling Center (UCC) is positioned to provide excellent mental health care to our university community. The UCC serves our campus in four primary ways: clinical services to undergraduate and graduate students; consultation to all members of the community; training of future mental health professionals; and prevention-based outreach services. The UCC is particularly excited to expand its training program by welcoming our first cohort of psychology interns in July 2018, with plans to add a third intern to the 2019-2020 cohort.
In addition to its oversight of campus psychiatry and the Safe Office, which provides sexual and relationship violence prevention and response, the UCC is known across the university for being highly collaborative with other areas and offices. UCC enjoys particularly close partnerships with the Student Health Service, Learning Assistance Center & Disability Services, Office of the Chaplain, Dean of Students, Residence Life & Housing, University Police, and the Office of Wellbeing.
Our clinicians are encouraged to seek opportunities to be creative as they develop partnerships to broaden the impact of our focus on wellbeing. This includes opportunities to serve on interdisciplinary teams including the Eating Assessment Team, Campus Assessment, Response, and Evaluation Team, Alcohol and Other Drug Coalition, and Crisis Management Team.
Professional staff are also supported as they seek out their own professional development and clinical trainings, most or all of which are often annually covered by the university. Service to the UCC via a role as an area coordinator (e.g., groups, eating disorders, marginalized populations, student athletes, outreach, etc.), as well as service to local and national organizations is encouraged.
