Cultivating the whole person — mind, body, and spirit — is a mainstay of Jesuit ideals and central to a Fairfield education. 该 new Student Wellness Center aims to accomplish just that; it offers a central location for the Student Health Center, which moved in this 八月, and will soon become the new home to Counseling & Psychological Services.
“The newly constructed Wellness Center is testament of Fairfield University’s commitment to the well-being of its students. The state-of-the-art Student Health Center and the future home of Counseling & Psychological Services are conveniently located to allow easy access while maintaining student privacy,” said Associate Vice President of Health and Wellness Susan Birge. “该se health and mental health departments are staffed by licensed professionals with the knowledge, experience, and compassion to provide the gold standard of care to our students.”
Counseling & Psychological Services, slated to move to the new Center later this year, offers individual psychotherapy, group therapy, substance abuse treatment, psychiatric evaluation, and referral to local mental health providers. The members of the professional staff are licensed psychotherapists who provide confidential, short-term psychotherapy to undergraduate students. The psychotherapists are trained in many modalities of therapy including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Brief Interpersonal Therapy, Strength-Based Therapy, and Insight-Oriented 该rapy.
