The Office of Counseling and Accessibility Services offers more than just counseling. We provide a number of helpful, consultative and educational programs.
A consultation can be very helpful for anyone worried about a particular student. Consultations are available for LIM College staff and faculty for a range of issues, including:
- How to recognize students who need help
- Strategies for helping connect a student with the Office of Counseling and Accessibility Services or other support services
- Crisis intervention and management
Counseling and Accessibility Services staff members are also available to consult with concerned family members and friends or roommates of students experiencing emotional distress.
All information about students is confidential and information regarding counseling sessions cannot be released without a student’s written permission, unless there is a threat of danger. However, we can provide general information about how to understand, provide assistance or get help for the person and situation you describe.
Confidentiality doesn’t limit what you can tell us. If a staff or faculty member would like to follow up on a referral to the Office Counseling and Accessibility Services, it’s best to speak directly with the student, who is not legally obligated by the same promise of confidentiality as the counselors.
Counseling and Accessibility Services also presents programs and workshops to campus groups. These are designed to enhance personal growth, skills development and a sense of community. Presentations include information and an opportunity for exploration and discussion.
We regularly conduct workshops on the following topics:
- Yoga Class
- Self-Defense Training
- Nutrition and Body Image
- Sexual Assault Awareness and Bystander Intervention Training
- Study Skills and Time Management
If there is a topic you are interested in which is not listed above, please contact us at (212) 752-1530 ext. 315. We will be happy to design a program to meet your needs.
