CCDA presents two speakers to help practitioners recognize and deal with signs of stress and distress—both in ourselves and in our clients!

This event is free to CCDA Members!

Notice and Respond: 

As Assistant Director of Student Case Management at Colorado State University, Jennie Baran works with students in crisis on a daily basis. She understands firsthand how to evaluate and assist clients in distress. She presents Notice and Respond, a program—Established by Cornell University to establish a foundational shared understanding of how to actualize the concept of a “caring community.” The Notice and Respond Program helps practitioners address interactions with clients who may be in need of mental health support outside of the practitioner’s scope of practice. 

Although designed for students, Jennie will present to all career develop practitioners on how to recognize the signs of distress of their clients and ways to effectively respond. Additionally, participants will explore common concerns that may present barriers to taking actions and learn why a proactive response is vital.

Holistic Care for Practitioners:

Learn tips for taking care of you—the practitioner. Presented by Jennifer Crandall, an experienced coach, counselor and advisor who consults and works with career professionals on holistic care for themselves. 

As an experienced coach, counselor, and advisor, Jennifer encourages clients to express their feelings, develop insights into self and relationships, and meet goals through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Positive Behavior Interventions Dialect Behavior Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. She recently established Sanctuary Wellness LLC to assist clients in development and maintenance of self-care routines to live lives of abundance.

There will be appetizers and a follow-up exercise on self-care. Come out on this January evening to learn, connect, and grow. We look forward to seeing you!!
