The Center for Counseling and Student Wellness at Hobart and William Smith Colleges has been re-accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services, Inc. The Center was evaluated by IACS against high standards of counseling practice and was found to offer competent and reliable professional services to its clientele. Approval by IACS is also dependent upon evidence of continuing professional development as well as demonstration of excellence of counseling performance.
“This is a significant accomplishment for the hard working and competent staff that I feel privileged to work with each day. The professionals at IACS maintain high standards for clinical practice. Their evaluation was comprehensive, and they provided us with excellent recommendations as we continue to work toward providing the best care for our students,” says Jeff VanLone, director of the Center for Counseling and Student Wellness at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.
The Center for Counseling and Student Wellness offers individual and group counseling, emergency psychological services, and psycho-educational outreach programming.
