Individual counseling is offered to help students gain a deeper understanding of the sources of their difficulties. These insights are then translated into plans for action that the student can carry out in his or her daily life. For issues requiring psychiatric services (medication evaluation and management) an appropriate referral to a community provider will be recommended.
At times, problems in relationships lead to stress and disruption in students’ lives. Couples counseling is an option when at least one partner is a full-time student. 已婚、未婚和LGBTQ+情侣都可以参加.
Both 宾西法尼亚 law and professional codes of ethics emphasize the importance of confidentiality in a counseling relationship. However, law and ethics also emphasize the sanctity of life and the protection of individuals. 保密 may be breached if the counselor has reason to believe that the client may pose a threat to him/herself or to others. 保密 must also be breached if the counselor has reason to believe that a child is the victim of sexual or other forms of abuse, or if the counselor is required to testify in a court of law.
Professional ethics concerning confidentiality prevent us from even acknowledging that we work with a particular individual. 因此, if you wish f或者是 counseling staff to confer with your family members, 教练, 或其他有关人士, 你必须签署一份“信息发布表”.” A signed “发布信息 Form” will offer guidelines concerning with whom we may discuss your situation and will outline any limits on such discussions. Of course, a release is not mandatory if confidentiality must be breached (as described in 保密 上图).
