If you have a friend or family member who has expressed an interest in seeking counseling services, The University’s Clinic for Individual and Family Counseling (128 Carroll Hall) can help. The Clinic has been offering low-cost counseling services to the public for 20 years. It offers counseling to individuals, couples, and families for a wide range of concerns. The Clinic can help those struggling with career-related concerns, depression, anxiety, anger, relationship concerns, divorce, and blended family issues.

The Clinic, part of the College of Education, is a nonprofit counseling center staffed by master’s and doctoral-level trainees who are supervised by licensed faculty members.
A sliding fee system is used, but no one will be denied services because of an inability to pay the sliding fees.

For more information, or to make an appointment, please call (330) 972-6822.
Visit us at our Web site.

UA Press releases book of poetry
spacer image

The University of Akron Press has published "Mistaking the Sea for Green Fields," a book of poetry by Ashley Capps that is also the winner of the 2005 Akron Poetry Prize.

In her first book, Capps shows a desire for something to believe in alongside her mistrust in authority. She feels "disenchanted with God, family, eros, even her own impulsive self." Her poetry sounds like the voice of a fresh generation, where the familiar turns elliptical and straight talk goes engagingly crooked.

Capps was born in North Carolina and earned a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of Iowa in 2006, where she is currently an educational therapist. She was awarded the Emerson Prize for Poetry from Ohio University in 2000.
