Welcome to the College Student Success Podcast. This podcast is devoted to helping college students with mental health conditions succeed in achieving their goals. I hope that students with other kinds of disabilities will find this information helpful as well. Whereas I find most podcasts are meant for ‘passive listening’ in that you, the listener, aren’t really expected to do anything but listen, this podcast will focus on empowering you to take an active role by setting a goal that you have a passion for achieving (it can be school-related, but doesn’t have to be), then try out the strategies I talk about that might help you get closer to achieving your goals, which in turn get you closer to your dreams. I’ve been trained over the years in several practices that will help guide this podcast. My background is rooted in Psychiatric Rehabilitation, which is a process of assisting people with achieving goals that are set by a person that will advance their recovery. It’s a very individualized approach that focuses on one’s strengths and treating the entire person. I work in the Department of Psychiatric Rehabilitation & Counseling Professions at Rutgers U. doing research in a specific kind of rehabilitation, Supported Education, which focuses on giving students with mental health issues support and helping them succeed in college. Over the past three years, I’ve worked as a Cognitive Specialist, meeting with students that have issues like depression, anxiety, and bipolar, and helping them learn strategies to improve their memory, attention, verbal learning, and problem-solving abilities. This unique blending of skill in Psych Rehab, Supported Education, and Cognitive Remediation will form the foundation for this podcast in assisting students to set goals that tap into their passions; the goals that people dream of accomplishing, but often have trouble dedicating time to attending to. I’m going to provide tips, strategies and info about campus resources that will help you work more efficiently, as well as get back on track quicker when things derail. I also will also address strategies for online education success. Students face a unique set of circumstances. The role of student is a temporary one in that you’re not “on campus” forever, but a permanent one in the sense that we should all strive to be lifelong learners. Students need basic skills (reading, writing, etc) at a certain level in order to simply move forward at the college level, but it’s often the more refined skills (study skills, a task management system) that separate the ones who excel from the ones that do not. Students with disabilities have an extra layer of struggle to navigate, come to terms with, and compensate for that students without disabilities will never be able to comprehend. I want to help this population stay focused on the goals that matter, and give them tools to make those goals attainable. The views and opinions of this podcaster in no way represent the views/opinions of Rutgers University.
