Team # 571 -- CAPS Clinical Session Limits Review Team
Student Affairs

January 2003


The purpose of this team was to review the limits to individual clinical services for students considering fees for service, "lifetime limits" for counseling and the parameters of brief and short-term therapy. The purpose was to ensure that services are provided to the maximum number of students for reasonable lengths of time. Among the outcomes were the establishment of a lifetime limit on individual counseling which would limit individual clinical services to two courses of treatment with the maximum of ten sessions each, after which students would be referred to other resources.
