Outreach Workshops and Consultation

CAPS offers educational programs of general interest to the Penn State community.

Frequent topics of our programs include:


Request a Workshop or Presentation

We are able to respond to a limited number of requests for programs and consultation based on staff availability, the clinical needs of students and the timing of the event. We ask that you give at least 2 weeks notice. More notice is desirable when requesting programs at peak periods and when the event requires advanced preparation to meet your needs. We reserve the right to ask your group to consider attending an existing program that CAPS or another unit is offering in the event of duplicate requests.

To request an outreach program, please complete our Request Form or contact Dr. Kate Staley at (814) 863-0395.
