The Carruth Center is open, but most of our clinicians are working remotely. We are only seeing psychological and psychiatric emergencies in person at this time. For information about counseling options available to students located in West Virginia as well as students currently outside of the state, please see our COVID-19 updates page.

Master's Training

A week before classes start, a mandatory orientation is scheduled to train practicum counselors in crisis management, triage assessment, and other training-related topics including policies and procedures of the center.

Training in various clinical issues will be ongoing throughout the placement. These may include, but not limited to, brief therapy models, motivational interviewing, ethics, assessing and treating clinical presentations of college students, alcohol and drug assessments, making appropriate referrals, treatment plans, termination, consultation, and psychiatric referrals. Training in diversity/multicultural issues will be integrated in all parts of the training.
