Helping Distressed or Distressing Students, Part II: Practical Applications

Raise Up GW REACH program presents: Helping Distressed or Distressing Students, Part 2. Practical Applications

This session aims to build upon the previous sessions of “Helping Distressed or Distressing Students,” in which mental health concerns, resources, and the helping role are explored. Participants will take a deeper dive into this topic and will focus on practical application in this session. Participants are encouraged to bring relevant scenarios they have encountered regarding student mental health concerns. They will examine these scenarios with the facilitator to develop effective responding skills to distressed or distressing students. It is recommended to attend Part I or view the session recording on the REACH website before attending this session.

Participants will:

  • Gain tips and strategies for effectively responding to student mental health concerns
  • Discuss how to practically apply skills learned in Part I to situations they have encountered.

Presented by Counseling & Psychological Services
