Counseling Strategies and Skills to Support the Emotional Well-Being of Students in Distress

Students’ emotional well-being is a key consideration for student affairs professionals as they work to provide students with a robust college experience that adds value to their degree and prepares them for success during and after college. However, students’ experiences as they adjust to the demands of college life, move through different developmental stages, get exposed to new ideas, shape their own identities, and plan for their future, can sometimes cause distress. All students experience different challenges that may create emotional distress while they are in college.

In this webinar Dr. Paz Maya Oliverez will provide you with the information, knowledge and tools to address and support the emotional well-being of students in distress. This webinar will better equip student affairs professionals to identify warning signs of student distress, understand possible stressors, and apply counseling strategies that support students’ well-being.

Failing to address the needs of students in distress on college campuses can have dire consequences for campus communities. Student affairs professionals would be better-suited to support students and their colleagues when they understand the warning signs and behaviors associated with emotional distress, as well as the strategies that they can apply in their work to ensure that students of concern are provided with the appropriate resources and support to alleviate their stress and support their well-being.

You will be able to identify the warning signs of a student in emotional distress, identify possible causes of this distress, and implement the appropriate counseling strategies and skills to support students’ well-being depending on the nature and urgency of the situation. You will also be able to determine when it is appropriate to consult with a colleague to determine how best to serve a student, intervene in the situation yourself, or refer a student for mental health counseling or other support services to address the students’ needs.

After attending this webinar, you will be better-able to support students experiencing emotional distress or crisis. You will also be provided with tools and strategies for developing a departmental safety plan that can be implemented in your office to address instances when a student may be in extreme distress and pose a threat to themselves or others.
