A message from Director James Spivack, Counseling Center
Today’s students face increasing economic, academic, and social pressures, which can lead to emotional distress, depression, anxiety, and even thoughts of suicide. These conditions may also compromise students’ academic achievements affecting their ability to stay in school. As educators, we can play an important role in ensuring these students receive the help and support they need.
To help achieve this goal, I encourage you to take a new interactive, online course called At Risk where you can learn best practices in discussing your concerns with students and if necessary, referring them to campus support services.
In the course, you will engage in simulated conversations with student avatars who are fully animated and emotionally responsive, making this interactive environment a highly realistic role-play experience. Participation takes 45 minutes, and can be completed over multiple sittings (the course saves your progress along the way).
