Strategic Programming for Early University Entrants: Creating Support for Socio-Emotional Needs
Lancour, Julie A.
Understanding Our Gifted, v23 n3 p3-7 Spr 2011
This article introduces "Resiliency Training," a program designed to support early university entrants as they take on the challenges and adventures of their sophomore and junior year at the University of Washington (UW). As the Academic Counselor and Counseling Services Coordinator for the Robinson Center, watching the students engage with the balloons and stress reduction exercises, the author was excited to see the potential of this new endeavor. "Resiliency Training" is the latest addition to the Robinson Center's intrusive academic counseling model and related student support services.
