They could make reference to personal problems in their assignments or through email communication.
|2||Talk to the Student: ask the student to meet with you during your office/tutoring hours or another time that works for you both. Take the time to listen and understand what they are experiencing.
Refer: most likely, you will not be professionally equipped to give the needed help to the student and are encouraged to refer the student to the Counseling and Testing Center.
A. Suggest in a caring, concerned, and open manner that the student talk with a trained counselor. You can then walk the student to the counseling offices in either Pocatello or Idaho Falls or provide them with the correct Counseling and Testing Center contact information.
