CONTEXT OF THE JOB:

Psychologists I report to the Director of Counseling and Student Development and have responsibilities in the following: performing individual and group counseling and psychotherapy, crisis management, student development programming, outreach activities, and providing supervision of trainees at various levels. When functioning as psychologists, incumbents have frequent contacts with students, other faculty, professionals, and staff at the University. Expertise in providing a broad range of counseling services is essential, as are skills in providing consultation to others and problem solving. Such work is often highly sensitive and requires thorough knowledge of ethical and legal procedures. Psychologists and campus psychiatrists share the responsibilities for providing the campus with after-hours and weekend crisis management coverage. Independent action is required in all but unusual cases and advisement and counsel is often provided to other professionals and faculty members on campus.

MAJOR RESPONSIBILITIES:
  • Provide individual and group counseling and psychotherapy, including assessment, evaluation, and diagnosis, to undergraduate and graduate students for personal, educational, and career development problems.
  • Provide crisis management services, including periodic weekend duties as the designated University authority for the handling of crisis situations in the University community.
  • Provide services including programming, outreach, liaison, and consultation to campus partners.
  • Supervise the counseling and clinical work of graduate students-in-training at the master's, doctoral level, or postdoctoral level.
  • Initiate, develop, and provide student development programs designed to enhance the intellectual, social, and personal growth of University students.
  • Advise and counsel students, professionals, faculty, and administrators who seek consultation in regard to issues which have psychological dimensions to them.
  • Serve on committees and/or perform special projects, recommending courses of action to superiors.
  • Perform other clinical responsibilities required of the agency e.g., liaison to Student Services for Athletes.

QUALIFICATIONS:
  • Completed doctoral degree in counseling psychology or a closely related field with an internship in a college or university counseling center.
  • Doctorates from academic departments accredited by the American Psychological Association are preferred.
  • Completion of a postdoctoral fellowship or relevant post-degree experience in a college or university counseling center.
