DRC: Every Day Skills: Working with Students in Distress

Tue 4 Feb 2020


This course is run and the trainers provided by the Disability Resource Centre

This participative workshop will enable attendees to confidentially discuss the impact of dealing with students in distress and review ways of working with them. Aimed at all frontline staff, including porters, administrators, librarians and so on, and will have a focus on shorter interactions where there is no ongoing welfare role. The workshop will discuss ways of being supportive in ways which are effective and manageable for students and staff. The workshop will also address when to say yes – and when to say no.

The workshop will be conducted in a relaxed and open way and will result in those attending feeling more confident in these interactions. The workshop will also update attendees on available sources of local support for students.

Target audience

*University staff, College staff and Non-University Teaching Institutions staff

This workshop focusses on shorter interactions where there is no formal pastoral relationship. If you are in a pastoral or welfare role, you may find our workshop ‘Boundaries and Boomerangs’ useful.
