90-minute Conference Session

Borrowing Across Professions - International Educator Thinking Like a Counselor

Wednesday, October 19
1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Room: Heritage

International educators are often called upon to support students through significant life experiences, and establishing early rapport can mitigate problems before they become crises. Using ideas borrowed from the counseling profession, this session explores some of the integral skills, processes and other considerations and how they might be translated to international education advising as a means to establish trust and rapport with clients in ethical ways.
