Fall is coming and so are many new international students who need added support adjusting to life on campus. Join two university psychologists to learn practical tips for helping your international students adjust and succeed.

In this webinar, you will gain insights on how to recognize and address adjustment challenges for international students, ranging from changes in lifestyle and interpersonal relationships to cultural differences. Learn tips for talking to students about their mental health, including what questions to ask and when to provide support. Come away with creative ideas for developing engaging programming for international students in collaboration with different departments on campus, and discover the special issues that arise for a cohort of students from a specific country, such as China. You will also learn how to recognize the signs of crisis and understand the boundary between counseling and international student advising.
