Message from the Director Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) has had a productive, successful and innovative 2012 -2013 academic year. It has been full of positive and challenging events and changes, but overall we are proud of the work we accomplished this year. The reason we are introducing our own CAPS annual report is because of our commitment to be more accessible and transparent to our UCF community, and to reduce the stigma associated with using our services. We find that sharing our yearly story can help in achieving those goals. Some of our most impactful work happens behind closed doors with our client, but we also have a positive impact on campus through our Outreach/Prevention and Training arms of the Center. We would like to share this with you. We had several big events and changes this year. The first was our name change from “Counseling Center”, to “Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)”. The intention behind our name change was to be clearer with the services we provide for our campus. We also kicked off our “Be Well, Do Well”, campaign, slogan and logo. There were several new programs developed this year such as the Allies/ Safe Zone re-launch; Paws-a-tively Stress Free Events with our Therapy-Dog-in-Training, Bodhi; the Healing Arts contest and exhibition; and the addition of our creative therapies using art and yoga, just to name a few. The addition of all of these programs supports our CAPS values and strategic initiatives (see pages 4-5). Another new initiative was the start of our very first Student Advisory Committee. This committee is in line with our value of being student centered and valuing our student voice in decisions and changes we make at CAPS. Our data showed that anxiety has moved up as a primary presenting concern of both CAPS clients and non-clients. CAPS responded by offering a wide variety of anxiety reducing groups and workshops to meet this need. Through these workshops (see page 9), CAPS was able to serve students who might have not otherwise come to CAPS. We had two successful open houses’ in the fall, one for the UCF staff, faculty and students (132 attended), and the other for our providers in the community (25 attended). These events help us continue to foster positive collaborative relationships and to be more accessible to our campus. A big event on campus was the tragic Tower 1 incident, but CAPS responded to the need for supporting our students, and we reached over 1,000 students in our outreach efforts during those weeks. A big change for our Center was the change in leadership and staffing where we lost the former director Dr. Stacey Pearson-Wharton, our Associate Director of Clinical Services, Dr. Vivian Yamada, as well as several other staff members. The last big change for our Center was the modification of our clinical intake system to be more student centered. UCF is always changing and CAPS is no different. We hope that this annual report gives you a clearer picture of all the multitude of projects, programs and services we offer. We know that we are one service of many wonderful services in our division of SDES that engages students and helps them be successful at UCF. We hope to continue to collaborate with you to make sure that our students stay on their course to achieving their goals. Sincerely, Dr. Karen R. Hofmann Director & Licensed Psychologist

Care Management Team (CMT) The purpose of the Care Management Team (CMT) is to provide wrap-around services to students. This approach provides a valuable bridge between our internal departments on campus and other services in the community in an effort to provide UCF students with integrated mental health care. The CMT strives to serve the needs of our students and the University through efforts to coordinate case management, monitor referrals, promote coordination and monitoring of care through collaboration among departments or agencies, improve communication, and facilitate coordination and continuity of care in complex cases.

Care Management: During the 2012-2013 year, CMT clinicians had 617 unique appointments and saw 207 clients. clients

Additional Highlights of CAPS Services CAPS is committed to maintaining its values of accessibility, visibility, and student centered. As part of this goal, we continue to expand our presence on campus. The continued presence of CAPS services at satellite locations, active response to campus events and needs, and 24-hour crisis services represent this commitment. These include the Veterans Academic Resource Center, Rosen College of Hospitality and UCF College of Medicine.

This year, CAPS Care Managers presented at the First Annual Drive in Conference for Higher Education Case Managers on CMT utilization and effectiveness. The CMT team also manages a COMMUNITY PROVIDER DATABASE (CPD) of private practitioners in the community. The CPD is free and accessible via CAPS’ website as resource to clients, students, and parents. This list continues to expand and currently includes over 200 community providers. We also have a representative that serves as a consultant on the Student of Concern Committee (SOC).

Response to Campus Events and Needs CAPS responded to crisis events on campus and provided crisis intervention, de -briefing consultations, and counseling services to the UCF community. The Towers incident in March represents an example of these types of services. CAPS was active in providing support to university staff and students following this event. This event contributed to an increase in utilization of our emergency services and after hours crisis line.

Response to the Tower 1 Tragedy The following list various actions taken by CAPS to assist and support the UCF community in coping with this tragedy:  Set up easy access satellite office in VARC and stayed in Towers until 11:00pm the first day  Walked 3rd floor with therapy dog in training, Bodhi, to check on students as given access to their rooms.  Outreach and Debriefings were offered to the following groups: Athletics, Housing staff and students (& with specific communities), Towers’ students (and parents), Honors College, Faculty Teaching and Learning Center, Prayer breakfast for faculty, LGBTQ Center, ADPI sorority, LEAD Scholars and McNair and MSC students  Consultative Services offered on-site daily for the first week  Paws-a-tively Stress Free event provided with Bodhi and volunteer therapy dog teams & Expressive Arts Program offered at Tower 1 The demand for after-hours crisis service was up 650% compared to the week before the tragedy and our demand for walk-in crisis services during the day was up 44%. Although March is a month in which we expect lower numbers of emergency sessions due to low client turnout during spring break, this year emergency services in March were at a peak (partially due to the Towers I crisis).
