The SAFE (Substance Assessment, Feedback and Evaluation)
Alexandra Milonas, MSW, Director
Two postdoctoral positions available.
The SAFE program is designed to enhance the alcohol and other drug related services available to NYU students. The goal of the SAFE program is to provide a safe and welcoming environment for students to reflect on their use of substances, reduce high-risk behaviors and harmful consequences related to substance use, identify motivations and triggers related to their use, and build skills to help promote change.

Services at the SAFE program are non-judgmental, non-labeling and confidential. Some students may decide to access the SAFE program on their own or at the suggestion of a medical or mental health provider, teacher, family member or friend. Other students involved in the Student Conduct Process may come to the SAFE program as a condition of a referral given by Residential Life or Office of Community Standards. Typically, one-on-one SAFE Evaluations last for 1-3 sessions and act as a supplement to a student’s primary therapy at CWS. The goal of an individual SAFE Evaluation is often varied. It may be to provide personalized psycho-education to students, to provide a more in depth substance assessment, develop strategies to reduce risk/abstain/or moderate substance use, or to evaluate and discuss substance abuse resources and referral options.

Harm-reduction group counseling, Choices and Change, is also open to undergrad or graduate students with a desire to explore their own use, identify motivations and triggers, and consider making changes. Informal Clinical Consultation around addressing substance use issues within patients is also offered between the treating therapist and any CWS SAFE Team member. The SAFE team is multidisciplinary.

Eating Concerns Specialization
Anne McEneaney, Ph.D., Director
Two postdoctoral positions available.
The Eating Concerns Specialization at New York University's Counseling & Wellness Services provides postdoctoral fellows an opportunity to gain specialized training in the delivery of services to culturally diverse college student populations presenting with eating concerns (e.g., restriction, bingeing, purging, body preoccupation/shame/dissatisfaction).

Primary fellowship responsibilities include assessment, diagnosis, individual and group psychotherapy, outcome evaluation, and collaboration and consultation. As part of the specialization, fellows work with a committed group of professionals as part of a multidisciplinary treatment team. The team is comprised of psychologists, psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, primary care physicians, a case manager, wellness exchange staff and a nutritionist. We offer clients access to comprehensive services, supporting recovery with a multidisciplinary approach. While the agency operates from a short-term 10-session model, team members facilitate clients’ transition to long-term community providers as well as to higher levels of care (e.g., inpatient hospitalization, day treatment, intensive outpatient) as clinically necessary.

In addition to team involvement and the provision of individual therapy, each fellow co-facilitates a process-oriented Making Peace With Food group. Weekly 1-hour individual and 1-hour group supervision as well as biweekly 1.5-hour team supervision is provided to the ED fellows by a psychologist who has written, taught, and presented on eating issues, group psychotherapy and psychodynamic psychotherapy throughout the US and internationally.

Trauma Team Specialization (T)
Emily Price, LCSW, Director
One postdoctoral position available.
All invited to attend monthly trauma meetings (Fridays, 2:00).
The NYU Counseling and Wellness Trauma Team is a multidisciplinary group of CWS clinicians specializing in trauma treatment. The role of the post-doctoral fellow is to serve as a primary referral source for students presenting with trauma symptoms, facilitate group therapy for trauma survivors, and participate in monthly trauma meetings (where we discuss cases and policy as well as invite speakers from the community to discuss various trauma treatment techniques).

Students present to CWS with a full range of traumatic experiences including sexual assault, physical assault, child abuse, serious accidents, sudden loss, war/combat, torture, natural disasters, domestic violence, etc. The Trauma Team post-doctoral fellow will evaluate cases and accordingly determine applicable treatment techniques within the context of our short term model including crisis intervention, creating safety, processing experiences, or – when appropriate – helping facilitate a long term referral to a private therapist in the community.
