Providing Psychological Counseling in Community Colleges: Even Greater Challenges and Fewer Resources
Epstein, Bert
Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, v29 n4 p289-295 2015
Community college counseling is often not well understood in the "university-centric" higher education community. In fact, work at community college counseling centers typically involves an exaggerated version of the challenges found at university counseling centers. At a community college, there are usually vastly fewer resources from the college (number of staff, facilities, and overall financial support), and the student clients often face many more struggles (economic, academic, and psychological). Recently, various professional counseling organizations have begun including community college counselors, and expanded collaboration between those who work at community colleges and at universities benefits all.
