These policies have not been put into place to discourage anyone from obtaining therapy that they need. The Center values the contribution therapy can make to the development and growth of graduate students in training. The Center will provide a list of practitioners and will try to work with community agencies and individual therapists to provide no-cost or low cost therapy for graduate students, though we cannot promise this will occur.
Our policy arises from an aggregate of situations over many years that have caused us to be concerned about potential issues emerging out of dual roles. The way our particular center operates, trainees have contact with numerous staff and it may be impossible to prevent difficulties that can arise from dual roles. Therefore we found it necessary to establish these guidelines and policies.
