Proposal Abstract

The panel, experienced TRU Counsellors, will share narratives woven from actual cases, to probe, with us, the mysteries that are our students. In their role, counsellors come to know our students in ways the rest of us may never come close to. They support them through those unexpected crises that threatens to upend the student; the frailties that the student barely acknowledges; the on-going complex conditions or situations that can make student life seem impossible. The presenters will provide stories that span that range, seeking from participants what we might need from them, in order for us to help each other, in our complementary roles so that, together, we can serve and support our students well.

Statement

The presenters will share stories which may both resonate with and complicate our perceptions of our students. They seek to engage with us, exploring ways we might support one another in our different roles. Narratives shared will reflect trends students face in their challenge to maintain mental health and wellbeing.
