Required Workshops Description

  • Workshop 1: Managing Burnout & Compassion Fatigue: How To Support Educators’ Health & Wellness


    For higher education professionals, the past few years have been especially difficult. Educators and support professionals have been faced with regular changes in program structure and delivery requirements, increased expectations from leadership, and significant increases in student mental health crises and concerns. For anyone working in higher education right now, burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma may feel like it is at an all-time high.

    The challenge, however, is that even when we feel burnt out and exhausted, our students still need our support. Unfortunately, this can make it feel like it is increasingly challenging to manage each day's workload.

    Therefore, this interactive webinar is dedicated to the specific needs and challenges associated with being an educator and/or helping professional in today's higher education climate. You will gain insight into the signs and symptoms of burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma. In addition, you will learn practical strategies for managing both daily and acute episodes of stress, design your own burnout prevention plan, and have the opportunity to engage with colleagues experiencing similar challenges to share strategies that are both effective (and ineffective) in maintaining your physical, emotional and mental health.


    • Recognize signs and symptoms of burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma
    • Identify how stress shows up for them personally and professionally
    • Learn specific strategies they can implement to support themselves and their staff experiencing burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma

  • Workshop 2: Mental Health, Depression & Mood Disorders: How To Identify, Support & Refer Students


    Higher education institutions uniquely influence a college student’s personal and professional journey. Traditional college-aged students are at a critical developmental stage in their lives, one in which they are exploring all aspects of their identity, learning skills like self-reliance and independence, and honing their interpersonal skills. Additionally, they are engaged in more intensive educational pathways and navigating career options and learning.

    While this exploration and learning happen, many mental health conditions may also appear simultaneously, typically between 18 and 25. This means that new and scary symptoms may develop for your students while they are in your classroom or utilizing your services at school. This can feel confusing and overwhelming for the students and the faculty and staff supporting them.

    This webinar specifically focuses on the signs and symptoms of some of the most common mental health conditions we see on college campuses today and is intended to help faculty and staff feel better equipped to identify, support, and refer.


    • Review the most up-to-date data on college students' mental health
    • Learn the signs and symptoms of specific mental health conditions
    • Discuss particular strategies for offering support to students struggling with mental health concerns

  • Workshop 3. Student Anxiety & Its Negative Impact On Retention: Strategies To Support, Respond & Refer


    In recent years, anxiety disorders have become more prevalent among our students. Many students with significant anxiety seek treatment from campus mental health practitioners, but it is becoming a more frequent occurrence that students disclose and seek support from non-clinical professionals on campus, including faculty, residential life staff and advisors. How should one respond when a student shares that s/he/they “have anxiety”? A referral to the counseling center may be unnecessary, as the student may already be using that service. The student is seeking understanding, empathy, and perhaps accommodation. But should non-clinical staff engage with students around mental health concerns? If so, what do those staff and faculty members need to understand about anxiety disorders and their treatment?


    • Innovative Use Cases: Examine cutting-edge AI scenarios that showcase the potential for transformative change in educational practices and administration.
    • Ethical and Sustainable Practices: Delve into ethical considerations, privacy issues, and inclusivity in AI use, developing guidelines for a responsible approach to technology integration.
    • Finalizing Your AI Plan: Utilize insights from the session to make final adjustments to your AI implementation plans, ensuring they are robust, ethical, and aligned with your institution's goals.
    • Next Steps and Resources: Gain direction on further learning opportunities and resources to continue your journey with AI in education.
