APPROACHING STUDENTS OF CONCERN


Designed and facilitated by Megan Cobb, this workshop will help faculty and staff to identify students who may be struggling and refer for early intervention. 

Participants will learn to identify signs and symptoms of mental illness, how to appropriately express care and concern, and where to refer the student for services.


MAKING CULTURE VISIBLE: LIFTING THE VEILS OF PRIVILEGED SEEING

Developed and facilitated by Rebecca Zambrano, this workshop explores the ways that our approach to everyday interactions is largely based on cultural norms, which are beneath our conscious awareness.  Our upbringing teaches us what kinds of behaviors, facial expressions, body language, timing and interaction are "polite," "good" and "normal".

These cultural assumptions sit in the back of our awareness and influence our moment-to-moment value judgments about how others speak, move, relate to time, use space and attend to shared work efforts. The result is that we tend to privilege our own cultural norms over those that others bring to the work effort.  We see our ways as "right and good" and we marginalize those who don't conform to our expectations. We are drawn toward those that have similar approaches and working styles, which limits diversity and the many gifts it can bring to any kind of collaboration.  

This workshop helps participants bring the unconscious to the level of consciousness in a gentle, humorous way that some participants describe as "transformational".
