Consulting & Consoling: Emotional Labor’s (In)visible Existence in Writing Centers

Peter Brooks & Grace Boulanger

University of Washington Bothell


Grace Boulanger, former Lead Consultant at UW-Bothell, and Peter Brooks, current First Year Composition professor (and former consultant) have worked together on numerous projects related to writing, empathy, and student compassion over the years. They both believe that creative expression should exist alongside academic writing, creating a synthesis of individuality and rigor. The two present a dialogue that discusses strategies to help consultants balance the emotional labor while navigating their omni-directional roles.
