Lifting Up the Generation that Doesn’t Look Up: Fostering Resilience and Self-Determination

The recent college admissions scandal has alerted the country to the enormous anxieties that students, parents, and others feel about “getting into a good school.” These headlines are just the tip of the iceberg. College counseling centers are overwhelmed by a new generation of undergraduates that grapples with significant mental health challenges. The number of students seeking Disability Services supports due to psychiatric diagnoses continues to explode. How did the college years become so emotionally overwhelming for so many students with and without disabilities? Dr. Parker will summarize how social media and other societal trends have contributed to this phenomenon, highlight innovative campus practices designed to address this trend, and offer suggestions for high school and postsecondary professionals who want to empower students with greater resilience, grit and self-determination.

Location: Brooks O’Brien Auditorium, East Academic Building (EAB)
