Working with Distressed and Distressing Students: Insights from the Office of Student Support and Judicial Affairs

Part of the Academic Advising certificate series »

Course Description

You may encounter students who lead you to be concerned, fearful, or even angry due to the student's outward behavior. The Office of Student Support and Student Judicial Affairs (OSSJA), formerly Student Judicial Affairs, is a resource to help you in these situations. Some may hesitate to contact OSSJA because they do not want to get a student in trouble. This workshop will explain the role of OSSJA, review strategies about how to interact with distressed and distressing students and describe the University's team approach to assist you.

Participants will engage in small group discussions while analyzing common student case studies and learn about the resources available for both staff and students.
