Consulting with UCC Staff
Sending a son or daughter into the college years is a complicated process for parents. As with every life transition, parents want to do what is best for their children. Parents often become concerned about their college student’s emotional functioning. Members of the University Counseling Center (UCC) staff are available to consult with parents who have questions or concerns about their Notre Dame daughter or son. Questions commonly asked by parents include:
- Is my concern about my daughter or son simply a normal part of his or her college student development?
- How might I best support my daughter or son?
- How might I convince my daughter or son to seek professional help?
- If there is a basis for treating my daughter’s or son’s condition as an “emergency,” what steps should be taken?
UCC assistance to parents will be based on the specific situation described and on the UCC’s staff counselors’ extensive experience working with college students.
