University of Maryland Counseling Center

Online Resources

The Counseling Center offers a variety of online resources for students, faculty and staff, and the general public. Among these offerings is our online Q & A forum, "Paging Dr. WEBster." Write a letter to "Paging Dr. WEBster" and receive a response within about a week. An archive of past questions is available, so your question may have already been answered.

The Center also provides about 30 online self-help brochures on a series of topics from procrastination and study skills to eating disorders and internet addiction. A link to the Virtual Pamphlet Collection, an even larger set of quality brochures, is available as well.

The Center's Resource Directory provides a listing of campus services for many of the problems and concerns faced by college students. This document is a worthwhile resource when you are looking for campus help with a particular issue. For faculty and staff, the Center has created "Helping Students in Distress." This guide helps faculty/staff members figure out what to do (and what not to do) in various situations with students

Included in these resources are links to a host of helpful webpages that have been screened for quality by our staff. These links are sorted by topic to make finding the information you need that much easier. Finally, we offer a page of links to the homepages of relevant professional organizations (e.g., American Psychological Association, American College Personnel Association, Association on Higher Education and Disability).

Feel free to suggest other pages that you find helpful or informative. We want this resource to be as comprehensive and useful as possible.
