The mission of the Vincennes University Counseling Center is to facilitate the academic and personal success of Vincennes campus students by providing emotional counseling and psychotherapeutic services to VU students who are experiencing a personal problem that interferes with their ability to function in a college environment.
The Counseling Center provides confidential emotional counseling and consultation to all VU students. A variety of situations can arise that require assistance beyond the help friends and relatives can give. While some individuals seek assistance when they are in a state of crisis, it is certainly not necessary to have a serious problem in order to seek the assistance of a professional counselor.
Counseling is a process which allows a person to:
- openly explore his or her concerns,
- deal with personal feelings,
- consider alternatives, and
- clarify goals in a supportive atmosphere.
Concerns addressed in the counseling setting cover a wide variety of issues and often include relationship difficulties, major life transitions, academic difficulties, stress management, sexuality, alcohol or drug abuse, eating disorders, or depression.
Most clients are seen on a weekly basis for approximately one hour. The number of visits varies with each individual. Some individuals just need someone to talk things over with, whereas others require more extensive contact. In addition to direct therapeutic services, referrals to local social service agencies and medical resources are facilitated when appropriate.
