CAPS is looking for two responsible and well organized students to join our student outreach team. The student coordinators main responsibility is to oversee the daily operation of the Mind Spas (at Waldo and Snell Halls) and oversee other satellite biofeedback programs including those at DAS, ISS, ASC, and the Vet Med Library. Other program responsibilities include providing outreach at tabling events, community events (START, Connect Week, Stress Free Zones, etc) and open house programs to promote wellness through the Mind Spa program. The student coordinators will also offer ½ hour biofeedback orientations to new Mind Spa users on a weekly basis. Other expectations are to keep the room clean and neat, and to work with the CAPS’ technical support in keeping all software and equipment in working condition. Other responsibilities may include researching information about promoting positive mental health and presenting results to their supervisor.
The Student Coordinators need to show responsibility, work independently, meet deadlines, and use their time effectively to complete tasks for the Mind Spa program. Each coordinator will need to be able to work approx. 15 hours a week with preference for students available to work some over breaks and summer.
Key Responsibilities and Skills:
When hiring student employees, CAPS does its best to balance state laws and the American psychological Association and National Association of Social Work ethical principles. For this reason, CAPS will not hire any current or former clients, thus avoiding potential harm. CAPS workers also cannot engage in counseling at CAPS during their time of employment; however, CAPS will assist the student workers find counseling if needed and requested.
