Walsh University Graduate Catalog 2013-2014
Up one level
Like everyone, graduate students face difficult life transitions and circumstances, experience painful emotions, and need assistance in developing clear and meaningful goals. Counseling Services employs counselors who are professionally trained to help students cope with a wide variety of educational, adjustment, and mental health issues. Counselors also facilitate academic progress and help students successfully achieve their career goals. A counseling relationship allows students to confidentially discuss their personal thoughts and feelings. Some of the skills counselors employ include listening, informing, empathizing, collaborating, brainstorming, problem solving, co-constructing goals, and modeling appropriate behaviors.
Counselors are glad to talk with you about any issue causing you concern or distress. Depending on the nature of the concern, counseling may be one session, short-term, or long-term. In some cases, a referral to a specialist may be required. All counseling is discontinued at the end of each semester and students can return in the future if they choose.
Counseling Services is also the initial contact for students with learning and psychological disabilities who are requesting special services. Counseling Services provides verification of disability and processes appropriate accommodations. Students with physical disabilities contact the Director of University Wellness.
