The staff of Counseling and Psychological Services provides consultation services to faculty and staff to assist in their work with students. Counselors provide mental health education training and consultation to faculty on how to assist students with problems that affect the learning process and how to respond to crisis situations. Consultation on learning styles, adjustment to college, human relations issues, and other mental health topics is also available.
CAPS also provides educational programs to the university community on a variety of topics. Presentations to classes or groups on mental health, personal development, and academic skills topics are available. To ensure our availability, we suggest that requests for presentations should be made a minimum of three weeks in advance of the anticipated program date. Please note that during times of high demand, it may not be possible to fill all outreach requests.
To consult with a counselor, call the center at 703-993-2380.
Forms to request an outreach program can be completed on the WEB and emailed to the appropriate person.
