The Counseling Center offers personal growth, self-exploration, and individual and academic counseling services to Emporia State University students. Counseling services are provided to students by a professionally trained staff member. Except in a few cases as prescribed by law, counseling discussions are treated confidentially and referrals for more comprehensive services are arranged when desirable. A case manager is available to provide comprehensive resource and referral guidance.
Biofeedback services include techniques for self-awareness and relaxation. Biofeedback can be useful for reducing test anxiety, certain types of headaches, relaxation, and mindful meditation practice.
The Alcohol & Drug Abuse Prevention (ADAP) program offers resources, education, and counseling to students, faculty, and staff regarding alcohol and other drug use and misuse. ADAP promotes healthy lifestyle choices that support academic success and enhance the campus learning environment.
The class, Prime for Life: On Campus Talking About Alcohol, provides eight hours of instruction that meets the requirements for Alcohol Information School required by the courts. Information regarding 12-step support groups and community resources are also available.
