Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Abstract Body: The session will present an approach for helping students self-identify and understand factors which contribute to the experience of academic and personal difficulty. The presentation is organized around a new self-assessment instrument we have developed which displays and describes eleven “Common Contributors to Academic and Personal Difficulty” in a visual format. These contributors are psychosocial as well as academic or cognitive. Students check factors which have some influence on, (or contribute to) their difficulty. The instrument includes an easy to use method for estimating the saliency of specified factors. The results are used to recommend specific interventions and referrals. The use of the instrument will be demonstrated with specific cases. Discussion period will invite participants to ask questions and share what they have learned from their own experiences about the topic. Objectives: 1. Demonstrate a new instrument for identifying academic, cognitive and psycho-social contributors to academic and personal difficulty 2. Discuss its applicability to faculty and other professionals who provide support to students who are struggling 3. Provide specific examples of its use with students 4. Identify four specific ways to reduce stigma and fear associated with disclosing causes for failure.
