The Georgia Southern University’s Counseling Center won two awards for its internship program and director at a recent February 2019 conference.

The Counseling Center won the Clinical Program of the Year for its Doctoral Internship for Health Services in Psychology and the Executive Director, Jodi Caldwell, won the College Counseling Director of the Year.

The award is a meaningful recognition as a noteworthy program requires every staff member to work hard to provide a unique and valuable learning experience for interns, Caldwell said.

The Counseling Center’s Doctoral Internship for Health Services has been educating students for nine years, going on its third year of achieving full accreditation status. It is the only Doctoral Internship outside of the Atlanta/Athens area in Georgia and the program has a hard-working yet determined staff who work with students every day.

Caldwell believes that the prestigious award will urge the GS community to continue to trust and be proud of their Counseling Center. Caldwell also hopes that the award will assure students and faculty of the high-quality mental health services available to anyone interested.
