Critical issues in counseling centers: Perspectives on mandatory psychological evaluation of first year college students

Co-Presenter. Counseling center directors are influenced by philosophical viewpoints, research information, treatment insights, and the personal/professional sensibilities of their profession when consulting and discussing center and university policies and treatments.  Administrative and contextual factors of institutional environments also inform practice and consultation choices.  A diverse panel of highly experienced counseling center directors will interact with attendees in an open discussion of the following pre-selected critical issue currently being discussed by counseling center professionals.    Critical Issue:  In 2013, the Sport Science Institute of the NCAA convened a task force to address mental health issues of student-athletes, and after consultation with campus officials and counseling center directors, drafted a "best practice" document.  Among its recommendations was the suggestion to conduct pre-participation mental health screening of all student-athletes. Similar to recent conversations about mandatory testing for plane pilots after Andreas Lubitz crashed his plane into the French Alps, these NCAA practice guidelines have prompted renewed discussion regarding the idea of mental health screening of students to assure campus safety.  In addition to questions about practicality, privacy and confidentiality, concern about psychology becoming a "big brother" presence in educational communities has been raised.
