Student Employment Learning Outcomes and Effectiveness Strategies | Pepperdine University | Seaver College

Student Learning Outcomes

 

A student who visits the Counseling Center will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an increased understanding of mental health.
  • Engage in cognitions and behaviors that will improve one's own mental health.
  • Demonstrate skills to empathize with and assist others, from diverse backgrounds, who have mental health concerns.
  • Integrate a Christian faith and worldview with psychological principles in understanding and maintaining mental health.

Effectiveness Strategies

This department uses various strategies to assess outcomes. Examples include:

  • Participants in Outreach and Prevention events complete post-tests to assess learning of current mental health and safety issues.
  • Club convo events offer a pre-test survey, in addition to the post-test measure, to gauge changes in student learning through the convo series. Brief reflections also employed. Counselors rate clients' learning observed in session.
