Title: Deescalating Advisees in Distress
Lead Presenter: Danielle Bostick
Date: October 07, 2020    Time: 1:20 pm - 2:05 pm
Room: Semi-Live
Abstract: The academic advising community at the University of Georgia is taking a proactive stance by promoting the use of helping skills related to mental health and crisis intervention as part of their advisement practices. According to Reynolds (2009) 'professionals in student affairs and services need effective helping and interpersonal skills to understand and assist students and, when necessary, refer them to other on-campus services.' The presenters will give a presentation about helping advisees in distress, which was recently presented as part of a series of mental health sessions for academic advisors this fall. The session is applicable to advisors from any type of higher education institution. However, the presentation may be most appropriate to attendees who are interested in using helping skills to serve students experiencing distress during advisement appointments.
