At Purdue Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), our mission is to help Purdue University students maximize the value of their life experiences. As we develop collaborative relationships in a safe and respectful environment, the unique value and dignity of each individual and group are held paramount. Values around social justice, advocacy, and diversity are foundational to our work. We accomplish our mission through a variety of clinical services, including individual, group, and couples psychotherapy; crisis intervention; drug and alcohol programs; and psychopharmacology. Prevention services through outreach and consultation, and the training of helping professionals complete our mission as the multidimensional counseling center for the campus.
Persons in this Staff Therapist role will need to bring progressive and robust generalist clinical skills/experience, as well as experience and knowledge, specifically in serving our African-American and Black student community. They will participate in providing therapy services via a variety of modalities to Purdue students. Staff contributes to clinical service delivery through the provision of individual, couples, and group therapy; on-call services; triage; and substance use, abuse, and dependence services. Staff also provide outreach and consultation. Licensed staff provides supervision to therapists in training, as needed.
