Staff Psychologist (2 positions available), Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS) - Division of Student Affairs

Georgetown University's Division of Student Affairs contributes to the establishment of a student-centered learning community that fosters educational and personal development and is dedicated to the Jesuit tradition of care for self and others - cura personalis.  

The Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS) serves as the university's primary mental health agency for its students and campus community. Our central mission is to collaborate directly with students in overcoming difficulties that may interfere with the definition and accomplishment of their educational, personal, and career goals. Accordingly, CAPS strives to provide students with opportunities to develop greater self-understanding, identify and solve problems, and improve academic performance through the alleviation of psychological, emotional, and cognitive impediments. Our mission often extends beyond the consultation room and into the campus community. Through outreach, partnerships, and consultation initiatives to faculty, staff, parents, and other campus offices, CAPS seeks to promote psychological health as a value to the Georgetown community. 

CAPS anticipates 2 openings to be filled for during summer 2017 for the following areas of expertise:

  • The Sport Psychology Specialist provides services at both the Athletics Department and at the CAPS main office for assessment, individual and group therapy, referrals where needed, outreach, and consultation to the campus community.

  • The International Student Specialist provides assessment, individual and group therapy, referrals where needed, and outreach and consultation to our growing community of international students.  We are especially interested in finding a clinician who has demonstrated experience reaching out to students from the Pacific Rim, South Asia, and the Middle East.  Language skills, for instance Mandarin or Arabic, would be a great asset.
