Campus counselling services today must face the challenges of greater diversity and complexity on campus while making do with fewer resources. In order to be maximally effective, they must be willing to engage with other services within and beyond the campus itself. This comprehensive manual for campus mental health and student affairs professionals is specifically designed to provide the most current information available regarding critical issues impacting the mental health and educational experiences of today's college students. It is unique in its focus on outreach beyond the walls of the counselling centre and how counselling services can coordinate their efforts with other on and off-campus institutions to expand their reach and provide optimal services.Written for both mental health counsellors and administrators, the text addresses ethical and legal issues, campus outreach, crisis and trauma services, substance abuse, sexual minorities, spiritual and religious issues, bullying and aggression, web-based counselling, and pychoeducational services. The authors of this text distill their expertise from more than 30 years of combined experience working and teaching in a variety of college and university counselling centres throughout the U.S. The book serves as both a comprehensive text for courses in college counselling and college student affairs and services, as well as an all-inclusive manual for all college and university mental health and student affairs professionals.
