Staff meetings are held several times during the semester. Interns are expected to attend all of these staff meetings. As stated in the training philosophy, interns are expected to engage in all aspects of typical counseling center duties. Staff meetings can be helpful in staying informed about center updates, participating in policy decision making, and connecting with other staff.
Meeting with the Training Director and Interns
The Training Director meets with interns on a weekly basis throughout the year. This is a time to clarify questions, connect, address issues, engage in case consultation, and discuss professional development issues. It provides an important opportunity to keep lines of communication open between interns and the Training Director.
The Center has a number of committees that meet to discuss issues and recommend policy, including, but not limited to: the Training Committee, Intern Selection Committee, Crisis Response Team, Wellness Committee, Digital Committee, ASPIRE. Interns can choose to be on at least one committee per semester. Interns can rotate to a different committee each semester.
