Types of Appointments
This option provides students with the opportunity to meet with a registered psychologist or doctoral resident to assess their psychological functioning and develop a plan specific to the student's needs. Psychotherapy is an option under this pathway.
Appointments are a maximum of 50 minutes in duration, with a maximum of 32 student sessions available at the Centre each week.
A solution-focused session incorporates positive psychology principles and practices. These sessions provide an opportunity for students to work toward a solution to their presenting problem. This is done in collaboration with a Wellness Navigator (Registered Clinical Counsellor), psychologist or an advanced trainee (supervised by a licensed professional). One session is typical; however, additional follow-up may be considered.
This option allows a Wellness Navigator to assist students with a variety of needs through the coordination of appropriate internal (MUN or SWCC professional services) and external (community, professional or electronic) services and the provision of support. Group therapy is an option under this pathway.
Appointments are a maximum of 50 minutes in duration, with a maximum of 40 student sessions available at the Centre each week.
This option allows students to meet with a clinician and collaborate and communicate with them within a safe and supportive environment. It is intended to help the client address ways of thinking, feeling or behaving that are problematic in their lives; process concerns related to relationships with others or difficult life experiences; improve skills; and find relief from emotional or psychological distress.
There are two types of group therapy: process and psychoeducational. Process groups are closed so that difficult and often deeply personal issues can be disclosed, whereas psychoeducational groups may be in the form of an open, drop-in or closed group.
