Workshop to provide tips on helping nervous students

A free one-hour online workshop Friday, March 20, will provide tips on how to respond to students who are nervous about the implications of the coronavirus outbreak.

“In light of growing concerns, we are seeing an increase in individuals feeling nervous,” says Mohsan Beg, executive director of the Student Counselling Centre.

He notes that being concerned and empathetic about this outbreak is normal, but adds that students may experience feelings of discomfort that impact their concentration and productivity — even disrupting their sleep patterns.

Dr. Beg invites all staff and faculty to join the session to explore simple tips in the hopes of empowering, nourishing, and supporting the school community.

It is accessible Friday from 2 to 3 p.m. at https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/753863805 from a computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Those new to GoToMeeting may get the app in advance to be ready when the meeting starts, https://global.gotomeeting.com/install/753863805.
