How to identify and intervene with distressed students

When: February 11, 2016, 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Where: Charlotte Frank Classroom (1203 HE)

Presenter(s): Martin Pino and Sabrina Rubin (Counseling and Wellness Services)

Have you ever had to figure out how to best respond to:

  • an upset or agitated student who showed up for your office hours?
  • a student who was engaged and participatory in class and became withdrawn?
  • a disruptive student who interrupted your class?

These situations are not uncommon, but can be a challenge to manage: you may not feel comfortable intervening, or feel equipped to do so effectively.

This workshop is designed to increase faculty members’ confidence and competence in:

  • identifying students in distress.
  • effectively engaging students in a discussion about their concerns.
  • determining when to refer students for counseling.
  • appropriately referring students for additional support.

This training is interactive and discussion-based so that it can be tailored to meet the needs and interests of the faculty who attend. We encourage you to bring past experiences or potential future situations that you would like to discuss. If you would like to submit questions or topics of interest ahead of time, please contact Sabrina Rubin at
