Discipline-specific Approaches

Specific disciplines may have reason to be particularly interested in student well-being. This may be because of the competitive or adversarial nature of the curriculum (e.g., Law), or because of the particular training environment challenges of the profession (e.g., nursing). Although there may be some specifics to the approaches of these different disciplines and professions regarding well-being issues, there is usually also enough commonality to ensure cross-disciplinary relevance.
