July 21, 2015
​Duncan McArthur Hall A237

9:00 am - 10:30 am  OR  10:50 am - 12:20 pm  OR  1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

This workshop is the second in a three-part workshops for teacher candidates, who will receive certification for completing all three parts of the workshop.

The focus of this session is not to make an educator into a counsellor but rather to enable the educator to determine if a student is struggling and to know when they need to refer elsewhere. Teacher candidates will learn to identify distress based on behavioural cues and will discuss differences in children versus youth, how to handle distress in the moment and then appropriately refer students, as well as how to report incidents of suspected abuse to CAS. Some case examples will be outlined for participation and discussion.

Tickets are free, but space is limited so please register as soon as possible. Please also use your Queen's email address to register.
