Students get into the college of their dreams, but then their lives begin to crumble. Every college intervention has been attempted, but ultimately the student withdraws. What’s next, and how do they get back on their feet?
Mona Treadway, PhD and Gary Borjesson, PhD from Dragonfly Transitions, a young adult program in Southern Oregon, present on this topic in June at the Higher Education Consultants Association (HECA) in Dallas, Texas. The presentation will include videos of interviews with students in a therapeutic transitional program designed to help such young adults. They will share about their hiccups in college and the journey to recovery. The presentation will also delve into qualitative research on areas that young adults in transition have identified as supporting and hindering their growth process in this phase of life.
