Fostering Resilience and Coping with Entitlement Among Students & Their Families - March 23, 2017 Webinar & CD
ISBN/ISSN: PUB#AC1052 Resilience.Entitlement.Among.Students.3.23.17
Many of today’s college students believe that if they show up at your institution that they deserve straight A’s, to live in the most modern and spacious residence halls and that they should be given everything they want when they want it.
Avoid meltdowns and frustration and provide opportunities to challenge and reset the mindset of your entitled students and their families. Prevent unintended consequences of fostering a sense of entitlement by creating and adopting clear student code of conduct and policies that will support your institutions mission and establish well-defined expectations. Shift conversations from entitlement to rights and responsibilities, move from special treatment to resilience and how struggle and independence can facilitate psychological and emotional growth.
Join our expert presenter, Dr. Greg Eells, from Cornell University, as he shares the broad philosophical dilemma you face in addressing and coping with often unrealistic and increased student and parental expectations of colleges and universities that foster a sense of entitlement.
Dr. Gregory Eells currently serves as the Director of Counseling and Psychological Services at Cornell University. (Click here for full bio)
At the conclusion of the 90-minute webinar, participants will learn:
Strategies for working with entitled student to create and articulate clear expectations and consequences. Avoid meltdowns, frustration and miscommunication.
How to assess, review and audit the messaging your students and families are hearing from your institution — ensure you are NOT encouraging a sense of entitlement. Keep messages clear and consistent across all departments and from the institution.
Techniques to work with parents to help them understand the difference between their student’s “needs”, “rights” and “wants”. Remove them as a roadblock to their student’s ability to develop resilience.
Identify opportunities to address students and encourage them to “drop” their entitled attitude to develop a healthier, more satisfying and emotionally grounded experience at your institution.
Practical best practices for creating student codes of conduct and policies that you can adapt and transfer to your own campus. Don’t reinvent the wheel, use what is already successful on other campuses!
