2020 NASPA Annual Conference

Crisis, Compassion, and Resiliency in Student Affairs (ID 555)

How do student affairs leaders balance deep desires to care for students with sustainable personal wellness? Building upon a newly released book, the presenters will illuminate the personal impact of crisis response, explore wellness in the midst of professional chaos, and discuss supports for staff during disasters. Presenters will share diverse stories of high-profile crisis response and explore the professional and personal struggle to maintain wellness and achieve healing when the work demands a 24/7/365 dedication.
