If you teach in your second language or interact with students from a variety of language backgrounds, join us for an interactive talk about how to address these oral communication challenges.
In this workshop, McGill counselors and clinicians will present information to help you identify evidence of mental health problems, and to decide when to refer a student.
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.
Registration will in March 2014.
