SUBJ: Interested in Becoming a Peer Counselor?
Thank you for your interest in Crisis Intervention!
Crisis Intervention is a unique course that is designed to provide students with training that prepares them to respond to crises in effective, responsible, and ethical ways. Emphasis will be placed upon learning basic crisis intervention skills, understanding when to use these skills, and understanding topics relevant to college students. There are two primary parts of the course. First, the class meets weekly to address theory, introduce basic crisis counseling skills, and discuss issues relevant to college students. Second, students will continue their training at Oasis, the student-staffed crisis intervention center on campus, where they will spend one night per week and 3 weekend nights during the semester practicing basic crisis intervention skills via role-plays. Students also attend a weekend retreat that includes a variety of intensive training opportunities.
If you are interested in applying to take Crisis Intervention (PSY330), you will need to call the Psychological Counseling Center (257-2920) ASAP (before Friday, November 2nd) to schedule an interview. All students must be interviewed. Interviews will take place during October and November.
