New Considerations to Incorporate Problem Solving, Intervention, Community Building & Crisis Response
Your residence life student staff are the first responders in your residence halls — often making split-second decisions that could change the course of their residents’ lives and safety, and the well-being of the community. With the impact of COVID continuing to echo through campuses — impacting every aspect of operations – the preparation and skills gap of student leaders such as residence life student staff remains a concern for many administrators.
Intentional and transformational training that incorporates specific skill-building including problem-solving strategies, de-escalation techniques, community building, change management, mental health, equity and inclusion, and self-care equips your res life staff with the skills they need to succeed confidently and effectively when interacting with their residents, team members, campus police, and other campus partners.
Our expert presenter offers a new framework to guide resident assistant training, including specific strategies for responding to emergency situations; skills to assist them with problem-solving; and essential training topics to increase their confidence, skill, and comfort level.
