The Center for Counseling and Community Wellbeing is a training clinic that provides practical experiences for graduate students. Doctoral students in Counseling Psychology are required to follow the ethical principles and code of conduct developed by the American Psychological Association. Confidentiality is central to our mission of providing services to the community. All contact with the Center staff and all records and information maintained by the Center are kept confidential. All student-trainees are supervised, and supervisors require the sessions to be both audio and video recorded in order to ensure high-quality services. Written consent from the client, or their guardian if they are younger than 18 years of age, is required. Sessions will be reviewed only by student-trainees and supervisor(s) for the purpose of feedback and improvement. Release of information to other parties requires a signed consent by the client or his/her guardian.
