Advising the Advisors: A Preventive Intervention Strategy.
Moore, Carol A.; And Others
Workshops for academic advisers that were held by Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University are described to assist staff in career planning, counseling, and student services. Developed by the University Counseling Services, the workshops series for faculty and invited academic advisers, was designed to: promote collaboration between student services staff and faculty, reduce the frustration and burnout reported by advisers in addressing student concerns for which they feel unprepared, increase the ease of referral by advisers to appropriate student service professionals, and reduce incidents of poor advising. Outlines are provided for two workshops: (1) advising, interviewing, and referral; and (2) choosing majors and careers. Additional contents are: 14 terms that clarify the nature of the adviser's role (e.g., information provider, confidant, sounding board); 6 questions that can help staff explore reasons for wanting to be an adviser; 17 topics that advisers identified for future workshops or support group meetings; and topics of 11 other training programs available to advisers.
