Working with vulnerable students: Supporting international students in crisis
Monday 27 November 2017, King's College London (10am - 3pm)
In our work with international students we often have to work with vulnerable students and determine how to manage crisis situations. This workshop will focus on the change occurring over the last 5 to10 years in crises support to students in HE and the recommendations from UUK research concerning mental health provision/critical incident response. We will be discussing the reasons why it is good practice to support students during and after a crises in a timely manner and how the first 3 to 6 hours can be the most crucial time in reaching out to students to offer support.
We will examine a triage form/plan that can be used to determine; who is at risk (both students and staff), who needs to be contacted both internally and externally, a timeline of staff contact and debrief, what steps to take next, follow up and incident report coordination. The workshop will allow you to share cases you have experienced in order to explore strategies on how best to manage them.
The session will be delivered by Christopher Tucker who has been he Head of Campus and Residential Support at the University of Sussex for the last 15 years and Tim Ditchfield the Chaplain at Kings College London.
The cost of the conference will be: £60 for AISA members and £75 for non-AISA members. This includes refreshments and a light lunch.
