Counseling and Psychological Services
Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is located in the recently renovated Washington Building, which also houses Health and Wellness Services, the Access Center, and Behavioral Health. CAPS is within walking distance of the residence halls, campus libraries, and the Compton Union Building, where many student services offices, the university book store, and a food court are located.

Each intern at CAPS has a private office with an ergonomic and electric sit-stand desk, a desk chair, a small locked filing cabinet, book shelves, therapy furniture, and a portable table for conducting LD, ADHD and psychological assessments. Each office also has adjustable lighting, a telephone, a computer with biofeedback capacity, regularly updated software programs and applications, and a printer. SPSS has been installed on interns’ computers for use to complete dissertations or other research. Each computer also has a digital recording option, allowing for recording and viewing of clinical and supervision sessions to be used for training purposes. Interns’ computers provide access to internet and email, the CAPS scheduling system, policies and procedures, clinical paperwork templates, outreach materials, and the intern handbook and training materials.

CAPS has three group rooms with computer, internet, and projection capacity that are used for faculty meetings, outreaches and workshops, and training seminars. The Center also has a large testing room with individual testing desks and monitoring capacity, and a resource room with biofeedback equipment and a projective sand tray. CAPS has gender neutral restrooms and a kitchen with refrigerator, microwave, and dining access.

Testing Services is located within CAPS and keeps up-to-date, standardized psychological and learning disability testing and assessment instruments. The Testing Coordinator maintains a library of assessment texts that interns may borrow.

CAPS employs several administrative personnel who provide a wide range of clerical and technical support for the interns. These positions include a Program Manager, three Program Coordinators, two Office Assistants, and an Information Technology professional.
