Center for Counseling and Mental Health In-Service Trainings for Professional Staff

The clinicians within the Amherst College Center for Counseling and Mental Health strive to remain up-to-date on trends and best practices to deliver the best services possible. To that end, clinicians regularly complete trainings to learn and grow from one another. Below is a sample of some of those trainings over the past few years. Please note that this is not an exhaustive list and that not everyone who currently practices at the counseling center attended all of these trainings.
