The position is full time (40 hours/week) for one calendar year at the downtown Chicago campus. The start date is in early August 2014. The clinical duties include: providing individual (both short-term and long-term), couples and group counseling; initial intake interviews; crisis intervention; case management; consultation and outreach with students, faculty, staff and parents; possible supervision of practicum students; and other duties as assigned. The Fellow will spend at least 60% of her or his time providing clinical services.

In addition, the Fellow will be providing other non-clinical services such as outreach programming and consultation to the Roosevelt University student, staff, and faculty community on a regular basis. Outreach and consultation are a critical educational and networking component of The Counseling Center program and postdoctoral experience. The responsibilities vary widely throughout the year, but may include presentations to the Roosevelt community, writing articles for the Illuminations Newsletter, and assisting with overall outreach program planning and implementation. Fellows are encouraged to bring in material they are interested in developing, as well as areas of expertise in regards to providing outreach to the university community.

The Fellowship is designed to provide both generalist training and specialized experience working with a diverse population of university students regarding a range of mental health and developmental concerns. The Fellow will participate in a clinical training seminar, staff meetings, and intake disposition team meetings. In addition, the Fellow will have the opportunity to take an active role in one or more areas of service, specifically outreach, training, and/or general Center administration.
The Fellow will receive two hours of individual supervision from a primary supervisor. S/he may also receive additional supervision on special projects, outreach or group therapy as needed. All supervisors are licensed clinical psychologists in the state of Illinois.
