The counselors at Rose-Hulman's Student Counseling Center use
brief, goal-focused counseling methods for Rose-Hulman students.
The staff finds many personal concerns can be addressed effectively
in a brief period. Students can talk with a counselor about the
issues they are facing, explore related thoughts and feelings,
identify personal strengths, and learn new skills. Some students
may only meet once or twice, others for a longer period. All
sessions are confidential and at NO cost to the student. If further
assessment and medications are needed, a referral to a medical
professional can be made.
Students may also choose to invite romantic partners to see a
counselor with them to improve their relationships. This is a
common experience and RHIT counselors can work with couples issues
when they arise, provided that at least one of the clients is a
Groups pull together a number of students sharing a common
concern to provide an opportunity for support, building skills, and
personal growth. Groups usually meet 30-60 minutes each week, and
may run from 5 to 9 weeks each semester. Groups include issues
relating to relationships, depression, anxiety, and shyness. Types
of groups offered include stress management, assertiveness, and
procrastination workshops. Group schedules are typically posted in
advance and registration/consultation with a counselor prior to
entrance is preferred.
Educational presentations, outreach and workshops
Rose-Hulman counselors can also provide guest lectures or lead
workshops for campus organizations. Topics can include depression,
test anxiety, stress management, relationships, or any other topic
related to mental health. If needed, please contact the counseling
office as far in advance as possible to allow the counselor to
prepare materials. Also, indicate what topic you would like the
counselor to address and to whom she or he is presenting.
Counselors can also be on hand at presentations as liaisons and
crisis management resources if potential distress or need for
mental health services is suspected.
Rose-Hulman counselors also provide consultation to faculty and
staff, including administration, professors, sophomore advisors,
and resident assistants. Students may reach out to many different
individuals when in need, some of which may feel confused or
uncomfortable dealing with mental health issues. Counselors are
available to consult with any Rose-Hulman faculty or staff who may
be concerned about a student.
