{message from the director}

H

ello UCF Knights! Thank you for taking the time to view our report. 2013-2014 brought another great year of accomplishments and changes to Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) that we wanted to share with our campus community partners and students. Please see our website for additional details on the types of services we provide WWW.CAPS.SDES.UCF.EDU CAPS utilization continues to increase every year. This past academic year, CAPS served 3,318 students, for a total of 17,491 appointments. 99% of our students continue to be very satisfied with our services; seeing us as a necessary resource on campus; and being a place they would return and refer a friend. This year CAPS implemented assessing our client’s psychological symptoms before each session. Results showed that our student’s psychological symptoms reduced even after one therapy session, and continued to reduce the more sessions they attended. Although our students are satisfied and improving, we stay committed to continually assessing the effectiveness of our services by focusing on program evaluation and student learning. We are always working on ways to improve accessibility to better serve our students. CAPS now has satellite office locations in Knights Plaza (near Towers) and Neptune Residence Hall. Our data continues to show that anxiety is the number one presenting issues for students. This coming year we anticipate the launch of our Therapist-assisted Online (TAO) web based program that is effective in reducing anxiety.

Karen R. Hofmann, PH.D. Director Counseling & Psychological Services

There is so much more I could share, but I will let the report speak for itself. I feel grateful to work at a dynamic University such as UCF, with great partners such as you, and a dedicated, caring, and skillful staff at CAPS. Counseling and Psychological Services looks forward to continued collaboration, so that our students are successful in their academic and co-curricular endeavors. Have a great year! Karen R. Hofmann, PH.D.

SUMMARY

CLINICAL SERVICES

We are happy to announce that CAPS hired a new Associate Director, Dr. Chris Hanes. Clinical Services at CAPS provides comprehensive psychological services to the UCF community. We provide services that are studentcentered and are an essential resource to the UCF community. In this effort, we offer a range of clinical services that promote best practice and embraces innovation. We understand the importance of accessibility for students when they need them. In support of this value, we offer services in five locations across UCF and provide 24 hours per day 7 days a week access to services. Students that seek our services have reported significant benefits. Our clients indicated a high client satisfaction rate and significant decreases in psychological symptoms and distress after receiving services at CAPS, even after just one session. Looking at our outcomes allows us to continue to refine our services and promote treatments that have the biggest impact and value with our students. CAPS experienced a higher demand for services during the 2013-2014 Academic Year, as compared to previous academic years.
