Position Summary

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is seeking an Interpersonal Violence Services Coordinator – Specialist 2-Counselor or Specialist 1 – Psychologist (depending on qualifications). Reappointment is at the discretion of the Director.

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is a leader within the Division of Student Affairs in supporting the mental well-being of all OSU students. CAPS provides a variety of services to help students address the challenges and difficulties they face. We are dedicated to helping students by providing brief mental health services; more intensive or specialized care may be offered if linked to university wide initiatives such as Interpersonal Violence Services (IVS). Interpersonal Violence (IPV) can encompass a broad range of abusive behavior: physical violence, sexual violence, harassment, stalking, and psychological aggression (including coercive acts like money control and who a person can see). IPV may be committed by a person who is or has been in a romantic or intimate relationship with the Reporting Party of the same or different sex, the Reporting Party’s spouse or intimate partner (of the same or different sex), the Reporting Party’s family member or cohabitant or household member including a roommate. Whether there was a relationship is also gauged by length, type, and frequency of interaction. Further, CAPS seeks to support students with underrepresented and/or underserved identities.
The Interpersonal Violence Services (IVS) Coordinator position is primarily focused on ensuring that OSU students who have experienced interpersonal violence are provided with excellent clinical care. This is done by coordinating CAPS services for survivors of interpersonal violence, facilitating training for CAPS clinicians regarding diverse trauma-informed best practices, and supporting a professional environment that encourages clinicians to practice healthy trauma stewardship. In addition to these core responsibilities, the IVSC also actively consults with OSU faculty and staff regarding how to best support students who have experienced trauma. Additionally, the IVS Coordinator collaborates with the the OSU Survivor Advocacy and Resource Center (SARC) regarding campus interpersonal violence response efforts. The IVS Coordinator may also, in collaboration with SARC, conduct trainings and presentations across campus and other local communities to increase awareness of available support and reporting resources, and to facilitate a more supportive climate and trauma-informed response to survivors. The IVS Coordinator contributes to the development of purposeful campus initiatives, programs, policies, and procedures regarding response to interpersonal violence.
The IVS Coordinator leads the IVS clinical treatment team and coordinates the internal CAPS agency response to survivors of interpersonal violence, in consultation with CAPS’ Director and Associate Director of Clinical Services. The IVS Coordinator also organizes and provides training for CAPS staff and trainees around issues related to interpersonal violence and serves as a consultant to CAPS staff regarding how to work most effectively with CAPS clients who have experienced interpersonal violence.
This position requires an innovative team leader to oversee the IVS program in collaboration with numerous offices within OSU and the community. In addition, CAPS seeks candidates with recent social justice training, implementation experience, and cross-cultural fluency in supporting survivors of interpersonal violence from all backgrounds and across multiple intersections of identity.
The IVS Coordinator position reports to the Associate Director for Clinical services at CAPS.
