Doing Well: Stepping up for Students and Colleagues in Need (TD2101)

Wed, 25 Jan 2017 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM


"Doing Well" is aimed at helping JMU faculty and staff learn the skills necessary to offer help if they suspect a student or colleague is struggling with disordered eating, alcohol/drug abuse, and/or sexual or intimate partner violence. Conducted through UHC’s The Well, the program is designed to give participants the tools they need to intervene in a safe, effective, and non-judgmental way, and to offer support and resources to those in need. Participants will learn how to identify common signs and symptoms of distress related to the aforementioned topics, and how to broach personal topics with sensitivity and understanding.

As a result of attending this workshop participants will:

  • Identify common signs and symptoms of distress related to experience with disordered eating, alcohol and other drug misuse, and/or sexual or intimate partner violence.
  • Describe the types of resources available to students and staff
  • Understand how to use open ended questions and the sandwich technique to start a conversation with a student or colleague
