Students with Psychological Disabilities: Strengthening Policies and Procedures
Venue: Loews Philadelphia Hotel
|Event Date/Time: Sep 28, 2011||End Date/Time: Sep 30, 2011|
The number of students with significant psychological disabilities enrolled at colleges, universities, and community colleges is on the rise. More than ever before, knowing how to effectively handle student conduct issues and possible threat concerns has become a priority for many campuses. Join us for an interactive conference designed to help you evaluate if your institution is doing everything possible to provide a safe campus and respond appropriately to individual student needs.
The focus of this event will be on research, legal requirements, proactive prevention strategies, and best practices for evaluating and responding to student threats and potential harm to the student and others. There will be many opportunities for you to interact with your colleagues and with our instructors. We encourage you to bring copies of your current policies and protocols so that you can assess, evaluate, and revise them throughout the conference.
To help bring the tips and techniques discussed during this conference into context, you will take part in a half-day interactive group simulation of a case involving a student who poses a threat of harm. Participants will have an opportunity to debrief and discuss various decisions and responses throughout.
