The #1 reason why people don’t reach out to someone they know to be struggling is the simple fact of not knowing what to do or say. Through this training, CUW student leaders will gain insight into their personal barriers to comforting others and will become equipped with tools and strategies to break through the “Awkward Zone."

Hosted by the JED Campus Committee in conjunction with Inspiring Comfort.
