From VCR's to the Cloud - the ETSU Community Counseling Clinic is in the process of being updated!

Beginning in summer 2011 with faculty discussions about updating our clinic so that we can continue to provide quality counseling services and education opportunities, we are now in the process of transformation. You can follow our progress here.

The ETSU Community Counseling Clinic has existed since the early days of the Counseling Program and originally utilized two-way mirrors and intercoms for session viewing. Analog cameras, microphones, and VCRs were added in the late 1980s. In the late 1990s, the clinic took took its current form with the addition of two rooms, upgrade of microphones within rooms for better sound quality, and the addition of television monitors and switches to allow for improved monitoring of sessions. 

We worked with Educational Management Systems (EMS) to install the Total Counseling Solution that will enable us to move from VCRs to the Cloud and go digital!
