Pressures We Face in Running Counseling Centers on College and University Campuses
Meilman, Philip W.
Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, v30 n1 p7-11 2016
In this article, Georgetown University Counseling and Psychiatric Service director Philip Meilman discusses two distinct emerging pressures faced by directors of college and university counseling centers. The first of these is the pressure to provide more of, and an increasing range of, counseling and psychiatric services. The second is related: an inability to offer explanations of what they do when they are criticized in the public forum for not meeting these pressures.
