Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at OSU is a leader within the Division of Student Affairs in supporting the mental well-being of all students. CAPS provides a variety of services to help students address the challenges and difficulties they face. We are dedicated to helping students by providing brief mental health services, or, if more intensive or specialized care is needed, making referrals to healthcare providers in the community. Further, CAPS seeks to support students with underrepresented identities that may include LGBQ, international, Trans* students, and ethnically/racially diverse students.
The Interpersonal Violence Services (IVS) Coordinator position is primarily focused on ensuring that OSU students who have experienced interpersonal violence are provided with excellent clinical care. This is done by coordinating CAPS services for survivors of interpersonal violence, facilitating training for CAPS clinicians regarding trauma-informed best practices, and supporting a professional environment that encourages clinicians to practice healthy trauma stewardship. In addition to these core responsibilities the IVSC also actively consults with OSU faculty and staff regarding how to best support students who have experienced trauma. Additionally, the IVS Coordinator collaborates with the Associate Director for the OSU Survivor Advocacy and Resource Center (SARC) regarding campus interpersonal violence response efforts. The IVS Coordinator may also, in collaboration with the SARC Associate Director, conduct trainings and presentations across campus to increase awareness of available support and reporting resources, and to facilitate a more supportive climate and trauma informed response to survivors. The IVS Coordinator contributes to the development of purposeful campus initiatives, programs, policies, and procedures regarding response to interpersonal violence.
The IVS Coordinator leads the IVS clinical treatment team and coordinates the internal CAPS agency response to survivors of interpersonal violence, in consultation with the Director and Associate Director for Clinical Services. The IVS Coordinator also organizes and provides training for CAPS staff and trainees around issues related to interpersonal violence and serves as a consultant to CAPS staff regarding how to work most effectively with CAPS clients who have experienced interpersonal violence.
This position requires a strong, innovative team leader to oversee the IVS program in collaboration with numerous offices within OSU campus and the community. In addition, CAPS seeks candidates with strong cross-cultural fluency in supporting survivors of interpersonal violence from all backgrounds.
This position exercises broad decision-making with regard to client care/treatment, development of policies and procedures regarding response to interpersonal violence survivors, consulting with SARC regarding development of curriculum for interpersonal violence education programs/training/classes, and the development and implementation of collaborative relationships with other on-campus partners.
50% of this position will consist of direct clinical practice with both trauma and non-trauma clients. The remaining duties will consist of leadership and coordination of Interpersonal Violence Services, training, university service, and other duties.
