Individual Therapy and Review Process


What happens:

Although there is no formal session limit for individual therapy, the Counseling Center generally works within a time-limited framework.  It is expected that a majority of the Center’s clients can be seen within 10-12 individual sessions.  Longer-term clients are considered to be an exception and these cases should be reviewed with the Director before deciding to offer further services (see Appendix C for referral criteria).  The goal is to reduce the amount of time clients must wait to see a counselor, to facilitate the client’s timely return to adequate functioning, and to refer most long-term issues to other outside resources when possible.
