SMU hiring full-time counselor for Resource Center program
Southern Methodist University is hiring a full-time employee to staff a recently launched counseling program at the Resource Center of Dallas, RCD spokesman Rafael McDonnell said.

The counseling program, a partnership between the Resource Center and SMU’s School of Education and Human Development, offers reduced-cost sessions for LGBT individuals and couples. The program, launched in November, covers topics including crisis intervention, grief management, depression, substance abuse and coming out issues.

Until now, the program has been staffed by one SMU graduate student working under the supervision of faculty members. However, McDonnell said the program is expanding to include two graduate students as well as a full-time employee who will have an office at the Resource Center. The addition of a full-time employee will allow for nighttime intake appointments.

"It took a little bit of time to get rolling, but we’re getting a steady stream of calls," McDonnell said of the program.
