During your initial meeting, you and the therapist will work together to determine what treatment is the best fit for you. Often, this will include individual therapy.
CAPS offers brief individual therapy to students seeking support for issues that are relatively well defined and which can be adequately addressed or resolved in a brief time frame. CAPS does not maintain a specific session limit, nor are brief individual therapy sessions guaranteed to students. An assignment to brief individual therapy is made through clinical judgment of students’ needs during the initial assessment.
Referrals for open-ended therapy can offer longer term and more specialized services. Referrals may be provided after the initial session, or as it is indicated after that. Referral Coordination Services are available to students who would like support connecting with community providers. If you already know you would like a community referral, or have been provided with referrals and have some questions, please see Referrals FAQ’s.
