Position Summary

The Counseling and Wellness Center at Trinity College is accepting applications for 2 full-time, academic year (40 hours/week, 10 months/year) Licensed Clinical Social Workers. Reporting to the Director of the Counseling and Wellness Center, the positions will provide direct, 1:1 psychotherapy to all students who desire assistance in coping with personal and emotional difficulties and social relationships. Approximately 40% of the student body seek services at the Counseling and Wellness Center each year. In partnership with faculty, staff, and students, the Center, consisting of seven clinicians, holds holistic interactive talks on a range of topics including mindfulness, meditation, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, identity, suicide, date rape, coping with grief, and removing the stigma of seeking psychotherapy to create a safe space for students to thrive. In addition to 1:1 counseling, the Center also provides group counseling. While the Counseling and Wellness Center provides professional psychotherapeutic intervention from a variety of theoretical orientations depending on the needs of the client, we supervise from a psychodynamic perspective, and candidates should be comfortable and professionally conversant with that orientation.

We strive to provide inclusive and culturally competent mental health services. We commit to mandatory training for our staff on cultural competency and promoting racial justice in mental health. We are especially seeking candidates who share these values and have experience providing services to students of color, international students, first-generation college students, and/or students who are part of the LGBTQ+ community.

Trinity College is a highly selective, independent, nonsectarian liberal arts institution located in Connecticut’s capital, Hartford. Our student body is diverse, representing 41 states and 70 countries with 21% students of color and 50% women. Just over 90% of students live in campus residences. We seek to have our staff reflect the changing demographics of our student body. With over 2100 full-time undergraduate students and 91 graduate students, the College maintains a rigorous academic profile complemented by a vibrant and diverse co-curricular program. The College enjoys the benefit of being situated in an urban center and has strong academic, social, and philanthropic connections to our home city of Hartford. As a preeminent liberal arts college in an urban setting, Trinity College prepares students to be bold, independent thinkers who lead transformative lives.
