Program Description

Through culturally-responsive and trauma-informed counseling services and outreach, the mission of the Baruch College Counseling Center is to assist students in achieving their academic and personal goals. Our interns provide individual psychotherapy, diagnostic triage assessments, crisis interventions, risk assessments, group therapy, and psychological testing to undergradate and graduate students. Didactic training through seminars and case conferences are scheduled weekly in addition to weekly individual and group supervision sessions. We serve students from diverse social, economic, and ethnic backgrounds with a wide range and severity of psychological disorders. Over 79% of students who use the Center’s services are students of color, many of whom are 1st generation American or international students, and many of whom are the first in their families to attend college. Interns are also expected to conduct at least 2 college-wide outreach activities, such as workshops or presentations.
