Parents' Critical Role in Raising Resilient Students

This one hour webinar discusses one of the most difficult questions with which parents struggle – "How do I love my child unconditionally while also holding him/her to high expectations?"  The dynamic tension between these two forces, love and expectations, explains many of the forces that create anxiety and perfectionism in too many of our young people today.  In this webinar, guest presenter Dr. Ken Ginsburg draws from the science and his clinical experience to discuss strategies to strike the right balance.  This webinar will be useful for all parents of Tulane students, but may be particularly meaningful for parents who are still raising our students' younger siblings.

Panelist (presenter):

  • Dr. Ken Ginsburg, M.D., M.S. Ed, Professor of Pediatrics, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine

Faculty’s Critical Role in Fostering Student Resilience

This 2-hour seminar started with a presentation on the factors that have contributed to so many of our society’s academically driven students having high levels of anxiety, depression, and perfectionism.  Then, the group discussed strategies the Tulane community can take to address the needs of its student body.  A larger academic question was discussed – how do we acknowledge the anxieties of our students without lowering the expectations and standards faculty are required to maintain?  Dr. Ginsburg did not come up with answers to this very difficult question, campuses nationwide are struggling with this issue.

  • Dr. Ken Ginsburg, M.D., M.S. Ed, Professor of Pediatrics, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine

Innovations in Supporting Emotional Well-Being on Campus

Research has shown that the emotional well-being of students has a direct impact on their academic success. According to NAMI, nearly 73 percent of students living with a mental health condition experienced a mental health crisis on campus. On-campus counseling services are a critical first step in addressing the matter, but more innovative approaches are necessary to ensure all student needs are met.

This webinar features experts sharing the innovative approaches campuses are implementing to help support emotional wellness on campus.

This webinar will highlight the most significant updates to the Alcohol Policy and what these changes mean for faculty, staff, and the students with whom they work.
