Helping Students Cope with Stresses of Earning the Degree

I would like to present knowledge and insights I have gathered from research and writing I have done about support group wisdom.  I have shared these ideas with college students to help them cope with the stresses and aspirations of earning a degree.  One example is the slogan "Progress, Not Perfection."  Another is HALT, which stands for [try not to get too] Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired.  One of the benefits of being an instructor is that, as I share these ideas, I also am reminded to practice them.  This has helped me be more empathic and supportive of student growth.
