THECOUNSELINGCENTER AT LOYOLAUNIVERSITYMARYLAND IS RECRUITINGFORTWO, 12-MONTHPOSTDOCTORALFELLOWSHIPPOSITIONSTHATWILLBEGIN ON AUGUST 12, 2019. The Fellowship Program offers specialized experience with mental health and developmental issues of the contemporary college student. Our staff provides an integrated service delivery model of student-centered clinical approaches, multicultural competencies and social justice advocacy, creative preventive public health programming and applied research. Our Program is designed to enhance one's skills in providing this kind of integrated university counseling center service. One unique aspect of the Fellowship is the opportunity for Fellows to develop an administrative specialization within a major service area in the Counseling Center with guidance, supervision, and mentoring from a primary staff member who specializes within that scope of service (e.g., social justice, public health/outreach, and research). Additional responsibilities and services include initial assessment interviews, brief culturally-responsive individual and group psychotherapy, daytime and after-hours crisis intervention, outreach programming, public health campaigning, social justice work, campus trainings, and consultation. Fellows receive professional training and development. Supervision consists of one hour of weekly, individual supervision by Maryland licensed psychologists and supervision of group therapy work. Fellows participate in a regular seminar that focuses on clinical topics, professional development, and culturally informed issues and trends in higher education inclusive of meetings with the Assistant Director for Training. Fellows join with senior staff in weekly staff meetings, case conferences, clinical team meetings, monthly Cultural Reflection Seminars, and Student Development Divisional Professional Development Seminars as well as support bi-weekly public health team and social justice committee meetings. Culturally-responsive approaches are infused throughout the training experiences for Fellows. The Counseling Center serves the campus community in a variety of roles resulting in our integration into the entire University. Our goal is that this postdoctoral training experience would mirror that level of integration and involvement, while providing a continual experience of being a valued colleague within our Center.
