Description:

Today's student affairs professionals are often called upon to help college students overcome academic difficulties and successfully earn their degrees. Considering that a college degree is an integral component of one's ability to advance in a career, academic trouble can be a frustrating and discouraging experience for both the student and the administrators who commit to assisting them. In this book, Glenn Hirsch offers professionals a user-friendly, comprehensive resource book of theories and specific techniques that can be used to enhance college student success. Dr. Hirsch offers readers an integrated model for change that includes both holistic assessments of academic difficulty and suggestions for three different levels of intervention based on the student's readiness and motivation for change. He also provides specific interview and testing strategies for determining the causes of academic difficulty. Effective, diversity-sensitive intervention strategies are structured around these fivemajor areas of academic difficulty: overcoming motivational blocks to learning, improving time management techniques, putting off procrastination, strengthening study skills, and managing academic anxiety and stress. In addition, special attention is paid throughout to the specific concerns that arise when working with students with disability conditions such as attention deficit disorder or learning disabilities. Instructors, counselors, advisors, tutors and learning assistance professionals will findHelping College Students Succeeda highly valuable resource in their efforts to help students succeed.
