Counseling Concepts and Applications for Student Affairs Professionals (CNS 577)


This video pamphlet collection, Understanding Issues Related to Today’s College Student, was compiled and produced by graduate students enrolled in CNS577 (Counseling Concepts and Applications for Student Affairs Professionals; Spring 2010). The videos are designed to bring awareness, propose implications, and offer helpful advice regarding a variety of issues that could impact the emotional, physical and mental well-being of today’s college student.
These videos cover an array of topics that will give you a sense of the many challenges facing life as a college student today. Our hope is that these videos can serve as a practical resource for college-bound high school students, current college students, parents and guardians, concerned friends, higher education professionals and others who desire information to provide awareness and offer assistance to those in need.
