Walk-and-talk is a form of counseling or consultation while walking outdoors in public places. Student Counseling offers walk-and-talk sessions as an optional treatment modality. Walking sessions take place around the perimeter of campus and/or in the science building/through the conservatory space. Some students enjoy the experience of movement while talking or feel more comfortable talking side-by-side, rather than sitting face-to-face in an office.
If you’re interested, we’ll decide beforehand if it’s clinically appropriate for your situation. Walk-and-talk sessions can be used intermittently or regularly, and may be discontinued at any time. If you participate in walk-and-talk, you will be asked to sign a special consent form for this type of session.
