Subject: PA/NJ CRLA Free Webinar - Friday, April 10

Dear Colleagues,

The PA/NJ chapter of the CRLA is hosting a free webinar on Friday, April 10,, 2015 at 12:30pm (EST). This year we are excited that Cynthia Carroll from the University of North Texas Health Science Center will speak about Using Cognitive Psychology Techniques with Students in the Academic Support Meeting. Cynthia is a licensed professional counselor with experience ranging from the clinical setting to the educational setting. She currently works at the UNT Health Science Center counseling students who are entering into various medical fields. She has worked with these students for over five years now, and as a result has gained extensive knowledge in how to handle difficult emotions, especially anxiety and stress. She is excited about this opportunity to share what she has learned over the years, to help you, to help others through you, and to learn from you as well.
Since academic support specialists are on the front lines of student support, they are often the first to see students struggling with anxiety or depressed mood, possibly because of an emotional or personal issue. It is believed that by utilizing the methods of Cognitive Psychology, learning specialists can improve student support, academic progress, and retention, and help reduce the need for immediate, traditional therapy.

During the webinar, Cynthia will demonstrate the importance of addressing the personal (cognitive and emotional) components of a student's success and how to provide students with initial cognitive information that can sometimes defer an immediate referral to the counseling center.  With this information, participants will be able to promote better academic functioning by training students on the topic of how to cope with intrusive cognitions. After this webinar, academic support professionals will be equipped with knowledge to positively influence students regarding personal, and consequently, academic concerns.

To sign up for the webinar, please visit http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0b49a8af2eaa8-2015. We are limited to 100 log-ins for Adobe Connect, so we highly encourage those at the same institution to gather in one space to watch the webinar if at all possible.

The day before the webinar, you will receive an email from me with the link you need to access the Adobe Connect space.

Best,
Lauren Humphries
PA/NJ CRLA President
