Students at Risk: Assessment and Intervention

Students at Risk: Assessment and Intervention

This module, presented here in its entirety, is one of nine modules that together comprise an online course titled "Students at Risk: Assessment and Intervention." This course is designed as part of a master's and certification program in school counseling at Seattle Pacific University. It relies heavily on student interactions including weekly work in small groups and one large group project due toward the end of the course. While I have taught this course in a face-to-face format several times, the course was developed as an online course for the winter quarter of 2001 and has been taught one other time in the online format.

I found this presentation to be a helpful learning tool on the topic of assessment and intervention of students at risk. By viewing the presentation and supplementary notes, I was able to understand which behaviors in students are considered risky. I applied this presentation to college-aged students and found that although some of the examples did not directly correlate, the information was still consistent for students at any age. If I planned to use this for a class about at-risk behavior in college-aged students, I would adapt some of the examples so they were more directly applicable.
