Do you know that many of our students struggle with interpersonal communication and healthy relationship skills and sometimes so do we as professionals? How can we as higher education professionals connect our students, staff, and faculty to these skills? How do we model the skills needed for student success?

In this session, we will explore some of the most helpful communication skills we use in the Student Support and Advocacy Center when working with students as they navigate through challenging situations. Some of these skills include active listening, perspective taking, boundaries setting, deescalation of difficult situations and emotions, development of autonomy and efficacy, and mindful grounding practices. This active workshop will be grounded in evidence and will provide faculty and staff with tolls to utilize these skills as they navigate difficult situations with our students and the entire Mason community.
