Consultation & Outreach

The Old Westbury Counseling & Career Center offers more than just counseling. We provide a number of consultative and educational programs for the Old Westbury community.

Consultation can be very helpful to individuals who are worried about a particular student. Consultations are available for staff, faculty, or administrators to address a range of issues including services available; how to recognize students who need help; strategies for helping connect a student with the counseling center or other support services, crisis intervention and management, as well as other related matters. Counseling Center Staff are also available to consult with concerned family members, friends, or roommates of students experiencing emotional distress.

Please understand that all information about our students is confidential and that information regarding counseling sessions cannot be released without a student’s written permission, unless there is a threat of danger. However, we can still provide general information about how to understand, provide assistance, or get help for the person or situation you describe. And confidentiality does not limit what you can tell us. If an administrator, staff or faculty member would like to follow-up a referral to the counseling center, it is best to speak directly with the student, who is not legally obligated by the same promise of confidentiality as the counselors.

The Counseling & Career Center also presents programs and workshops to any campus group. These programs are designed to increase personal growth and skill development. Presentations include information and an opportunity for exploration and discussion. The staff regularly conducts workshops on the following topics:

  • Relationships
  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Anger Management
  • Sexual Assault and Date Rape
  • Stress Management
  • Resume and Cover Letter Writing
  • Interviewing Skills

If there is any program you may want that is not listed, please contact us at (516) 876-3053. We will be happy to design a program to meet your needs.
