Knowing your limits: How faculty can empower students who are experiencing psychological difficulties.
Dorill Dining Hall Annex
This timely program will help faculty members assist students who are experiencing emotional distress or displaying disruptive behavior in class. The prevalence and severity of students' psychological problems are increasing. Today's students are more likely to enter Longwood with a history of psychological issues (i.e. anxiety, depression, low self-esteem). This interactive program will explore such issues as when to refer, how to refer, and what information about a student can be disclosed and to whom. A role play will spark discussion. There will be an opportunity to respond to participants' questions.
Panelists: Wayne R. O'Brien (Ph.D. Director of the Counseling center), Maureen Walls-McKay (Psy.D. Associate director of the Counseling center), Jennifer Apperson (PH.D. Professor of Psychology), Kristen Spitler (Psychology Major, Counseling Center Intern)
