 Personal Counseling

The Counseling Center Staff is available to discuss any personal or emotional difficulties in complete confidentiality. Services include individual and group counseling and range from counseling for personal and professional problems to crisis intervention. The concerns that students discuss with us include relationship and family issues, roommate problems, drug or alcohol use, self-esteem, and problems with eating, to name a few.


Educational Counseling

Educational counseling helps people strengthen skills needed to succeed in the classroom. Counseling Center staff offer expertise in the areas of study skills, time-management, test-taking strategies and stress-management techniques.


Vocational Counseling

Vocational Counseling can help people appraise their interests, attitudes, and personality traits. The Counseling Center staff frequently use tests to reveal these characteristics. By gaining self awareness, people become better equipped to make decisions vital to their educational and professional future. This may include decisions about what major or future career to choose.

Consultation to Staff and Faculty

The staff at the Counseling Center is available to help University staff and faculty in the following ways:

  • Consultation regarding how to best help students presenting with psychological concerns in the classroom and office setting (also please refer to Faculty and Staff Referral Guide )
  • Participation in Counseling Center workshops offered to the University community
  • Assistance with personal issues and concerns through a brief evaluation followed by referral to community resources for ongoing support and help

 


Workshops and Other Programs

The Counseling Center is happy to assist the individuals and groups within the University community who are working to promote the personal, social, and intellectual development of students. In the past, interested student groups, personnel, sororities and fraternities, academic departments and instructors, and other groups have requested that we conduct programs, workshops, and presentations related to career and educational decision-making, improving academic effectiveness, and personal and social issues. Some example of these topics are:

  • Understanding stress and its management
  • Eating disorders
  • Testing tips
  • How to get accomodations for disabilities
  • Suicide: facts and fables
  • Adult children of alcoholic parents
  • Protecting yourself: date rape and safety issues
  • Alcohol/drug awareness
  • What is your personality type
  • Assertiveness training
  • Study skills
  • Self hypnosis for stress management
  • Test anxiety management
  • Career interest testing
  • Building self esteem
  • Time management

Our workshops and presentations typically require a one to two-hour time slot, though some topics require more time than this. The topics above may need to be modified or narrowed to fit certain time frames and special situations or interests.

Your Own Ideas. The programs and workshops listed here are intended to give you an idea of the types of services we have provided in the past. Our staff is available to design programs on other topics to meet your specific needs and concerns. We will also help individuals and groups in the development and implementation of their own programs.

Bringing Our Programs To You. Requests for programs, special topic presentations, workshops, and consultations can be made to any Counseling Services staff member. If you are interested in a program, please stop in or call us:

914-773-3639 (fax)

New York City 212-346-1526

Our presentations and workshops can be provided throughout the year. However, the earlier you contact us, the more likely it is that we can meet your specific needs.

Psychological Assessment

Psychological assessment can help provide insight about an individual’s personality characteristics and can help clarify therapeutic goals.  Counseling center staff provide psychological assessment to help determine appropriate counseling treatment and/or as an adjunct to ongoing counseling.

If you are concerned that ADHD or a learning disability may be interfering with your academic success, we can provide you with a referral to an outside practitioner or agency for evaluation. Pace University does not offer ADHD or learning disability assessments. If you have further questions about disability issues, go to Resources and Support Services for Students with Disabilities.


Referrals to Community and Other Programs

When students are evaluated at the Counseling Services, it is sometimes felt that they would benefit most from referral to resources in the community. This referral may be to a more specialized program at a hospital or clinic or to a therapist in private practice. Our referral list is extensive and offers students a wide range of services which are of high quality and affordable.

Once a student has been referred to an outside resource, we suggest that they reconnect with the Counseling Services once they have contacted the referral. At that time, we encourage students to provide us with feedback about their experience. If the referral does not seem to be a good fit, then we will be more than happy to meet with the student again to provide them with more resources.
