Counseling Services professional retreat

Columbus State Counseling Services recently collaborated with Sinclair Community College and Otterbein University in the first annual Collaborative College/University Counseling Center Professionals Retreat. Participants networked with colleagues, received continuing education training, and enjoyed a team building activity. In an ongoing effort to provide high quality, inclusive counseling services for our students, everyone participated in training led by presenters from The Nationwide Center for Family Safety and Healing on the role of technology in dating violence and The Equitas Health Institute on mental health and substance abuse concerns in the LGBTQ community.
