In this workshop, facilitators will present information to help you identify a student dealing with mental health or disability issues, and decide when and how to refer a student to the available resources.

We will consider strategies for effective boundary setting and discuss the resulting mutual benefits for supervisors and supervisees. Each participant will be asked to present some hypothetical experiences during this workshop.
