Title: There Is No Halftime For Advisors - Being Your Students' Cheerleader
Lead Presenter: Kristin Richey
Date: October 08, 2021    Time: 11:15 am - 12:15 pm
Room: 233, DECC
Abstract: If asked what they love about advising, most advisors will respond that they love seeing students succeed. We have seen students struggle, but what skills are necessary for helping students succeed in the marathon? Believing in growth mindset, helping students demonstrate resilience, and putting one's own oxygen mask on first in the form of self-care are all important aspects of student success. This works great under "normal" circumstances, but how can advisors set healthy boundaries to avoid codependence in student interactions? And how can advisors avoid guilt for having healthy boundaries? In this presentation, participants will explore how to be a cheerleader when the stakes are high, the dimensions of wellness and ways to facilitate long-term student success while combating advisor shame and compassion fatigue.
