In addition to office hours and our unoffical sessions as Peer Listeners, we have compiled this list of mental health resources.
Peer Listeners Handbook
Peer Listening training is based on this handbook. You can download and print your own copy from here.
Listening to and Understanding Your College Student
This is a copy of the script for a program that the Peer Listeners use for Whitman Family Weekend. Many times when students leave home for the first time to head to school, it is the first time that they are really out on their own. The Peer Listeners have prepared this workshop to examine some of the issues that may confront parents and students when their son or daughter heads off to school and when they come home for the first time.
