Campus-wide Collaborative Care to Ease the Burden for Counseling Professionals
Develop a model of care based on partnerships for appropriate intervention, programs and support so that the counseling center staff does not need to address every situation.
Counseling centers are overwhelmed with demand for mental health service, in addition to conducting outreach, consultation, prevention and postvention work. Behavioral intervention teams and CARE Teams, designed to address concerning behavioral issues across campus, address safety issues and increase retention, have essentially become “refer to counseling teams.” As stigma around mental health has decreased, and more students are arriving on campus with pre-existing mental health conditions, counseling centers cannot handle these issues alone. Additionally, sometimes the counseling center is not the right referral, as higher education has started to pathologize normal emotions.
Join us on August 17, 2022 when our expert presenter – Dr. Marcus Hotaling, Director of the Counseling Center at Union College and the President of the Association for University and College Counseling Center Directors – will discuss creative steps to foster relationships with faculty, staff and administrators in providing them training on how to be empathetic to students and best provide them support, as well as how to identify emotions, behaviors, and actions that require more immediate concern and referral.
After attending this online training, you will be able to:
- Utilize “outside the box” program ideas to help foster partnerships and relationships within your institution — identify offices and partners that can assist in addressing mental health on campus, so your counseling center staff doesn’t have to handle every situation.
- Explore gatekeeper training as model of care – draw from proven training models to ensure your faculty, staff and administrators are able to provide empathy and support, as well as to refer when necessary.
- Recognize the importance of apprising higher education leadership of the national mental health trends, as well as campus-specific data – get buy-in from key stakeholders to generate fiscal and human resources and support.
- Identify potential partners outside of higher educational institutions – explore the pros and cons of doing partnering with local and national agencies so you can determine what will provide the best support for your staff and students.
Dr. Marcus Hotaling currently serves as the Director for the Eppler-Wolff Counseling Center at Union College. Dr. Marcus Hotaling received his doctorate in counseling psychology in 2001 from the University at Albany and has worked in a variety of higher educational settings since that time. Dr. Hotaling worked at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as a psychologist and Outreach Coordinator from 2003-2007, where the school was a recipient of the first Garrett Lee Smith Memorial Grant.
