Title: Incorporating Solution-Focused Techniques Into Parallel Planning and Alternative Advising
Lead Presenter: Nathan Vickers
Date: On-Demand
Room: On Demand
Abstract: Advisors can engage students in two processes that maximize accessibility to pathways related to their ultimate academic and career goals: parallel planning and alternative advising. Engaging in these conversations can be challenging, though, as students may not understand the importance or struggle with feelings associated with denial of access to a pathway. In this session, presenters will discuss how advisors can integrate techniques from solution-focused counseling into conversations to achieve learning outcomes related to these processes. Presenters will discuss a set of intentionally-crafted questions from a solution-focused perspective that help students open up to options available to them that meet their goals. Attendees will then collaborate through case studies applying these concepts to a variety of student populations at different points in their academic career.
