Letting Go

It is that time of year again. As high school seniors are getting their acceptance letters and preparing for college, their teachers, parents and counselors are gearing up to do all they can to help them make that important transition. Here to assist in that process is the fifth edition of Letting Go. This classic parents’ guide and college orientation staple has been thoroughly revised and updated by the authors to reflect the realities of college in the 21st century. This guide to the college years will forecast the problems and concerns parents inevitably face as they send their children to college and help both parents and students begin the process of “letting go.”

Also available are Letting Go workshops for High School Guidance Counselors and College Orientation Directors. These workshops are designed to help reduce anxiety and increase communication between parents and students, and to help students and parents develop more realistic expectations about college and foster the process of separation and “letting go.” Materials are available for these workshops in the Teaching Materials section of this blog underneath Academic Resources.
