Consultations for Students of Concern

If you are worried about a particular student, Counseling Center staff members are available for consultation. Call us at 781.891.2274 and ask to speak with a psychologist or clinician about a student in distress. If a referral to Counseling Center is warranted, we can help you identify ways to make a referral for the student. You may also walk the student to the center during our emergency hour, 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. weekdays. If the emergency is life-threatening, please contact University Police at 781.891.3131.

You may also find the following brochures useful in helping students. Hard copies are available in our office.

Consultations for Students with Disabilities

If you have questions about working with a student who has or may have a disability, please contact Stephanie Brodeur, assistant director of disability services, at 781.891.2274 or sbrodeur@bentley.edu.

Workshops and Presentations

We can facilitate workshops for students, faculty, or staff on a variety of topics related to mental health, wellness, and student growth. Common topics include:

  • Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessments and interpretation
  • Stress management
  • Relaxation
  • Healthy relationships
  • Sexual violence
  • Anxiety, depression, eating disorders, or other mental health concerns
  • Training in listening and referral skills for student employees or those who work with students

Both professional staff and the Develop U peer educators are available to host workshops or other events on these and other topics.

Class Lectures

Before you cancel class if you have to be away, consider having a Counseling Center staff member provide a lecture on a topic related to your course. Previous lectures have focused on gender issues and/or mental health as they relate to your class topic. We will work with you to identify connections between course content and student mental health, providing a new perspective for students.
