Webinar Events

Three great locations to attend: Grand Rapids Community College, Michigan State University, or Wayne State University

Academic Advising for High Achieving Students: Strategies that Foster Resilience
Thursday, November 5, 2015
2:00pm-3:00pm Eastern Time

Webinar Overview: Inspired by the work of Brene Brown, Martin Seligman, Carol Dweck, and William Sedlacek, Kerry and Nova will ask us to consider how often we meet with students who share deep concerns or struggles during an advising appointment. Have you ever wondered how, as academic advisors, we can help them navigate these trying times, take ownership over what they can change, and reframe the way they look at what they cannot change?
