Past Research & Presentations

Identifying, Responding to, and Referring Students Of Concern (Sept. 26th, 2014)

As a member of the Humboldt State University campus community, you are continually interacting with students. At times, you will have contact with students whose problems or behaviors will cause you concern, discomfort, or may interfere in the education of or services for other students. The difficulty is that most often, these types of situations do not go away. Join staff from the Counseling & Psychological Services Center, Dean of Students Office, and University Police for straightforward advice, techniques and suggestions on how to cope with, intervene, and assist troubled and/or difficult students. (Facilitators: Staff from the Dean of Students Office, Counseling & Psychological Services, and University Police)
