Cyclone Support Training: Conversation Strategies for Communicating with Students

April 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Cyclone Support Training strives to help you identify potential well-being issues that may affect students and provide them with the necessary resources for support. This training seeks to promote public health by reducing the negative impacts that students may experience during their college years due to various well-being issues. This 2-hour, highly interactive training will teach you best practices for communicating with students who may be struggling with their well-being and referring them to on-campus resources—the training is facilitated by Brian Vanderheyden, MPH, M.Ed, CHES®, Student Health and Wellness Unit.

In this training, which will take place in the Be Well Space (2030 Student Services Building), you will:

  • Identify any potential issues that may affect the well-being of students.
  • Discuss the best practices to follow while communicating with students who may be struggling.
  • Find resources that you can refer to to support students.
  • Practice conversation techniques through role modeling and role play.
  • Explore ways to incorporate these skills into your work to assist students better.

Things to Know:

  • For the experience to be engaging, we ask for a minimum of 8 participants, or we will need to cancel and reschedule for another time.
  • This program is organized by the staff in the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT), the Student Health and Wellness Unit (VPSA), Learning Communities (VPSA), and members of the ISU Well-Being Teaching Community.
  • If you need a reasonable accommodation, you may find more information on the University Human Resources Disability Accommodation page. For graduate student assistants and undergraduate students, don’t hesitate to contact Student Accessibility Services.
