Counselor-Consultation and Referral Team (CART)
The UF Counseling & Wellness Center invites qualified applicants for multiple positions within the Consultation and Referral Team. Under the general direction of the Counseling and Wellness Center (CWC) Associate Director and immediate direction of the CWC CART Program Director, this position requires a variety of skills involving triage, brief clinical assessment, and crisis counseling, including referral to on-campus and off-campus resources, as well as lethality assessment, safety planning, case management, and consultation with parents, faculty, and staff. CART counselors spend the majority of their time conducting brief triage and referral appointments and providing one-time crisis counseling to students who walk in for same-day support.
Triage appointments are brief (20-30 minutes) assessment and referral meetings with UF students seeking counseling services.
During these meetings, CART counselors briefly determine students' appropriateness for various on-campus and community resources and make recommendations and referrals accordingly.
During triage, CART counselors also assess for suicide/homicide danger and address other urgent concerns, such as substance use and mental status.
Triage may include safety planning and referral to on-call CART counselors for further evaluation and crisis intervention.
