The Center for Collegiate Mental Health: An Example of a Practice-Research Network in University Counseling Centers
Castonguay, Louis G.; Locke, Benjamin D.; Hayes, Jeffrey A.
Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, v25 n2 p105-119 2011
This article presents a model of a practice-research network that offers benefits for clinicians working at college and university counseling centers. We briefly describe the basic components of this practice-research network, challenges in developing it, and some of the empirical studies that have resulted from this initiative. We also describe possibilities for future research that not only will foster further collaborations between clinicians and researchers, but also will enhance our ability to understand and improve mental health services for college students.
