CITL Session Description:
As we converse and consult with faculty about student distress in higher education, we often hear confusion, frustration, uncertainty, as well as a commonality of occurrences. As student-centered higher education professionals and mental health practitioners and advocates, we believe that faculty should be provided content and tools to employ when a problem or question arises in working with a student in distress. This workshop will provide a framework and a roadmap, not a paint-by numbers, cookie-cutter approach for faculty to work with students in distress. Keeping in mind that every encounter with a distressed student or students is unique and includes its own set of inimitable circumstances, we will outline primary points as well as established principles and guidelines that have proven utility when addressing students who are exhibiting and experiencing distress. It is our hope that this workshop will provide direction and examples of best practices in addressing and working with students who are in distress. The presenters are the authors of the book, Faculty Helping Students in Distress: A Faculty Guide and Helping Skills for Working with College Students: Applying Counseling Theory to Student Affairs Practice.
