Mission: The office of the Student Counseling and Resource Center (SCRC) is committed to helping students reach their highest academic and personal potential. Combining academic, personal and group counseling, the SCRC offers a holistic approach to counseling students in a host of interrelated fields. Our goal is to help students fulfill their educational goals with minimal distractions. We realize that students might encounter difficult situations that could impede their academic, personal, and social progress. Our services are designed to help students address their concerns and increase their self-awareness, while empowering them to manage challenging areas in their lives.
Confidentiality: Professional standards of confidentiality are followed by all counseling staff. Information discussed within a counseling relationship will not be disclosed without written permission of the individual. Rare exceptions to this policy exist when confidential information is needed to protect someone’s health or safety, or is mandated by law.
The SCRC is unable to provide court mandated treatment of any kind. Students in need of these services will be provided with community referrals.
Free Services: The SCRC offers free academic, personal and group counseling sessions to all currently enrolled students at Lindenwood University-Belleville. All services are conducted on the Belleville campus during scheduled day, evening and weekend sessions.
Academic Counseling: The SCRC provides a holistic approach to academic student development through a network of comprehensive resources and services. To remain in good academic standing, undergraduate students enrolled in six or more credit hours in a given term must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0. To help students achieve and maintain satisfactory GPAs, counselors can assist with the following:
- Educational goal setting
- Stress management
- Time management
- Accessing campus resources
- Reducing test anxieties
- Adjusting to college
- Study skills
Personal Counseling: Licensed counselors and master-level counseling interns are available to assist currently enrolled students with personal issues that may be impeding their college success. An open and honest discussion of feelings, behaviors, relationships and life experiences with trained counseling individuals in a safe, confidential environment enables individuals to grow, make healthy choices and achieve both personal and educational goals. Counselors can assist with the following:
- Short-term individual counseling
- Crisis intervention
- Short-term group counseling
- Educational workshops and presentations, which includes education and training with residence hall staff and other campus groups
- Referrals to off-campus providers for more intensive, longer term, or more specialized treatment
Group Counseling: Group counseling is an excellent way for students to get support, learn about themselves and their relationships with others, and to develop new skills. Students can also receive support from peers and learn how to relate to them in different ways; gain knowledge about yourself and your relationships with others, as well as develop new skills for coping with difficult situations, thoughts and feelings - including social and general anxiety. Types of group counseling can include:
- Mindfulness skills to help cope with academic and personal stress
- Anxiety management skills
- Grad student support
- Coping with College support group
