b'RESPONDING TO STUDENTS IN DISTRESSWhen I see students in emotional pain, I try to go out of my way to talk to them.Sometimes they just need a friendly person to talk to.In other cases, I know they might benefit from talking to a professional from CAPS.In either case, they just need to know that someone cares. - Donna M. Fox, Ph.D., Director, GeorgeSquared, Biomedical Sciences Programs, George Mason & Georgetown Univ.Sometimes students may feel like they are alone in their struggles to succeed. It is important that we communicate to them that they are not alone. I share with my students specific challenges I have faced throughout my career, such as earning poor grades my freshman year of college.- Cheryl Dickter, Assistant Professor, Department of Psychology, William & MaryState and National Support21'
