Faculty, staff and students:

Unfortunately, distressing or traumatic events occur on college campuses.  These events often leave many students, faculty, staff, and members of the college or university community traumatized, worried or distressed.  When this happens, providing some time in a class setting for emotional debriefing can significantly aid and accelerate the healing process.  Counseling Center links are offered below for faculty on how to help and refer distressed students.  Faculty and staff can be very helpful in identifying those most troubled by these incidents that might benefit from counseling services.  Counseling center staff is available to consult with faculty and staff on how to talk about these issues.  Counseling services are also provided for faculty and staff.
