The Student Health Center psychologists provide pre-scheduled in-service training to faculty and classified staff in identifying and assisting students who are in emotional/psychological distress, are disruptive, or who are potentially threatening. The training is organized around three primary areas of preparedness.
First, the staff is taught and gains experience in active listening and de-escalating students who are distressed.
Second, they are provided information with how to access on-campus resources, including Campus Police, General Counseling, and the Student Health Center for students in need.
Last, they are given detailed training on how to respond to crisis situations, with specific information on the Crisis Intervention services.
