Students who have studied abroad over the past academic should consider a new half-credit course being offered this fall: 

CGST 201: Crossing Identities and Borders: Processing Study Abroad

https://iasext.wesleyan.edu/regprod/!wesmaps_page.html?stuid=&facid=NONE&crse=014894&term=1179 . 

Research has shown that students make the most of their experiential learning abroad when they are given the opportunity to reflect upon it mindfully.  This student-centered seminar will offer returnees from abroad (fall 2016 or spring 2017) the opportunity to do just that: reflect on their personal experience through regular interactions with others who have shared similar experiences. We will meet once a week as a group to discuss readings of general interest, related to identity, borders, culture, and intercultural sensitivity and growth.  The goal of this half-credit course is to provide you with the support needed for gaining a deeper understanding of your experience, and for representing this understanding in the way that makes most sense for you (e.g., through an essay, a digital narrative, a work of art).

Inquiries may be sent to Prof. Bernardo Antonio González at agonzalez@wesleyan.edu


1.     this class meets on Thursday mornings only

2.     the readings are intended to generate discussion

3.     success in this course equates to their commitment and participation, to their efforts at processing their own experience in a personally meaningful way; it does NOT equate to conventional notions of mastery

4.     this course is really an ideal “capstone” for our majors.

5.     this is an ideal way of picking up an extra half credit, stress-free

Hey Wesleyan!

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) welcomes you to campus for the 2017-2018 year.   We are happy to share with you that, with support from Student Affairs and the President’s Office, we begin this year with additional staff to help meet your needs.  We also want to make sure you know what services CAPS provides to the Wesleyan community.  Our team of psychotherapists and doctoral level externs provide individual counseling as well as a variety of groups for students who experience personal difficulties such as grief, anxiety, depression, trauma, adjustment or relationship struggles, or any other issues with which they need support and assistance.  Students in crisis or with urgent needs will be able to see someone from our team quickly through daily crisis hours, while those with less urgent issues can typically see a provider within 7-10 days.  We also have on-call clinicians available after-hours during the academic year for students who need immediate assistance when our office is closed. 

In addition to our diverse team of therapists, we have a number of externs and fellows who are here to work with you.   We also have a full-time psychiatric nurse practitioner, Katie Scheinberg, who believes in a client-centered approach that focuses on psychopharmacologic treatment in partnership with therapy.

Information about our all of our staff is available on our website www.wesleyan.edu/caps, but we are happy to introduce three new clinicians on our team (bios below).

To schedule an appointment, call us at 860.685.2910 M-F from 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM.  Students can also email us their weekly availability at counseling@wesleyan.edu.  Check our webpage for upcoming groups – fall offerings will include WESupport, Self-Care for Activists, Mindful Action, Addressing Insomnia workshop series, Understanding Self and Others for Female-Identified Students, and more.

We hope to see you at CAPS!

Dr. D’Andrea

Neal Sardana, our new full-time therapist, joins us after two years as a diversity fellow at Williams College.  Neal has a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in College Student Development.  His professional interests include identity development, impact of culture, social justice, marginalization and privilege, and toxic masculinity.  He has a background in career counseling and will partner with the Career Center to develop new programming this fall.  Neal is also the CAPS liaison to the graduate student community. 

Jennie Setaro is our new part-time therapist.  Jennie has an MA in mental health counseling, and her passion lies in working with college students who struggle with adjustment, anxiety, addiction, and sexuality.  Jennie is also a former college athlete who is looking forward to expanding the CAPS liaison program with the athletics department. 

Dr. Jessica Naecker is our postdoctoral fellow for the 2017-2018 academic year.  Dr. Naecker is trained as a generalist, but specializes in working with students experiencing anxiety and students who have experienced trauma.   She will also serve as the CAPS liaison to Academic Affairs, with the goal of assisting faculty in providing support to students.
