Another question, for schools with primarily a centralized model but that still have tutoring occurring in pockets in other areas is whether or not you're including all of those small pockets of tutors or just the central facility. At our school, we handle the preponderance of the tutoring, but there are course–specific tutors available, teaching assistants who work primarily in the classroom but offer one or two hours of tutoring per week, living and learning community tutors in the dormitories, and even specialist tutors for athletics and students with learning or physical differences. How do you then calculate the actual ratio when many of the students in these pockets are only available to certain students for a particular course?

>>> Cynthia Carroll from the University of North Texas Health Science
>>> Center will speak about Using Cognitive Psychology Techniques with

>>> Since academic support specialists are on the front lines of student

>>> 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
