Policy: 

Outreach services to the UCSC community include workshops, seminars, trainings, debriefings, mediations, presentations, organizational development and consultations. 

  • Staff, faculty and students may make direct requests for these services either to the Director, an Associate Director, Counseling Psychologist or Psychology Intern. 
  • Whenever possible a request should be submitted at least three weeks in advance.  This does not include consultations, crisis debriefings and mediations.
  • For workshops, trainings and presentations CAPS asks that there is a minimum of ten participants. 
  • Outreach and consultation services are offered on a recharge basis when requested by units or individuals who do not provide direct services to UCSC students.  Staff includes interns. 

Consultations are provided to members of the university community at their request.  These might include requesting input on individual or groups of students, advice on program development, or input on a developing campus issue.

As neither outreach or consultations concern identified CAPS clients, these services are not documented in the medical record.  Requests for consultation on identified clients are considered collateral contacts and should be documented as such.

In the event that a student is identified during an outreach service who requires immediate services, the situation should be triaged by the CAPS staff person on site, and responded to as indicated.  This might include calling campus police, directing the student to our crisis service, or instructing the student how to schedule a phone triage appointment.
