How Does it work?

  1. Intake Call
    Initial phone call to SAP
  2. Needs Assessment
    Meet with counselor for assessment session/s (typically, 1-2 sessions)
  3. Develop Problem Resolution Plan

A. Short-Term Solution-Focused Counseling
Based on detailed assessment for which short-term therapy recommended, go forward with additional sessions under SAP model.

B. Referral to Appropriate Resource(s)
Based on detailed assessment for which issue determined to be long-term, referred out of SAP for therapy and/or appropriate resources.

Assessment and Counseling

Reasons to use the SAP include marital difficulties, parenting, stress, depression, school or work-related concerns, alcohol and drug use/abuse, grief and loss, or preventative. When students and family members call the SAP, they are offered a face-to-face, telephonic or virtual counseling session in which a thorough assessment can be conducted by a licensed, experienced clinician in their area. SAP is short-term, solution-focused therapy so not all issues will be resolved within
the SAP model and may need to be referred to other resources.
