Assisting Students in Distress

Facilitator:

Shaina Rowell & Arie Baker

  • 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
  • Via Zoom

Event Description

As we move through the middle of the semester, we are in a time when students increasingly struggle to maintain their mental health and well-being. In this workshop for graduate students and postdocs, we will discuss signs that a student may be in distress and work through a variety of scenarios to consider strategies for how course assistants and instructors can communicate with and assist these students. We will also review when and how to make referrals to counseling resources on campus. The workshop will be co-led by the Center for Teaching & Learning and the Habif Health & Wellness Center.

This workshop will take place via Zoom. A link to the Zoom session will be sent out with the reminder email the day before the workshop. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Shaina Rowell, Assistant Director, The Center for Teaching and Learning.
