In addition to providing services to students who come to the Psychological Counseling Center, the PCC also reaches out to the campus community through programs and workshops which promote personal growth and provide education. Recently, campus programs and workshops have been offered on depression and suicide, sexual assault, time management, anxiety, social anxiety, and identity issues. These programs are open to the campus community and free of charge.
The PCC facilitates processing of the annual "Tunnel of Oppression," presented in the fall semester. The "Tunnel" seeks to increase awareness about a variety of socially discriminating behaviors and promotes discussion of stigmatization and oppression.
PCC staff provides semi-annual training to Residence Advisors to support their response to New Paltz students. PCC staff also provides informational and educational workshops and discussion sessions to Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) students and in Residence Halls, upon request.
Please contact PCC at 845-257-2920 if you would like to request a workshop for your campus group.
